This winter has been so snowy and icy cold that I haven’t been going out much but hubby and I did manage to get out to the antique store the other day despite the heavy flakes that were coming down. I wasn’t really expecting to buy anything … I just needed to get out of the house. Cabin fever always sets in this time of the year and I get a little stir crazy, thus the impromptu shopping spree. It ended up being a good trip because I came home with a few vintage finds from the antique store.
The small ladle on the right grabbed my eye, as well.
This is what the inside of the vintage tinware looks like. I searched for this piece online but couldn’t find any information. I found plenty of Kreamer tinware jello molds though. Anyone know what this piece was used for? I would love to know!
I paid a little more than I wanted, but I’ve never seen a measuring cup like this so I rationalized the purchase.
I love that it has grams marked on the inside, because I’ve recently come across recipes that call for ingredient measurements in grams and had no way to of getting the right portion. So I will definitely use this cup while cooking or baking.
My favorite find at the antique store is this white cast aluminum platter by Bon Chef. It’s not really an antique … I don’t even know if it’s vintage. Something has to be 20 years old in order to be categorized as vintage. Whether this platter is that old or not doesn’t matter to me. This piece is extremely heavy and was most likely used in a restaurant. I love its shape, color, and density.
Finally, I also found this cute little dish towel during our snowy journey for vintage finds. It’s not old, it’s not vintage. But I love the faded red stripes against the crisp, white cotton. The tiny ruffle adds to its charm. I think I can make some of these!
So what do you do to fight cabin fever during Old Man Winter’s reign on earth?
