The heat here in the Midwest has been unrelenting this year. It has definitely kept us home more. Kinda puts a cramp in my thrifting excursions.
But last Sunday Hubby and I stopped by the new indoor flea market after church.
Remember I told you that I wanted ALL of the Betty Crocker 60′s spiral cookbooks? Well, looky what I found for $2! I only need a few more to finish my collection.
I also had to have these; they are not Betty Crocker but SOOOO Mid-Century! Of course we have to know how to make famous foods from famous places! Most of the restaurants featured in here are no longer around
I also found these tablecloths to sell in my Etsy store:
These adorable valances were found on a vintage linens Facebook page. With shipping they were only $7.50. They look adorable in my knotty pine laundry room:-)
This was a $4 paint-by-number which I planned to sell but it does look pretty swell in my bedroom
This Tiki tidbit (or appetizer) tray was only $5 at the indoor flea market. I think it looks great in the middle of the table downstairs. It would be great with fresh fruit. The holes in the pineapple are for tidbits on toothpicks
The seller told me that she did, in fact, purchase this in Hawaii.
Well what do you think folks? Should I keep the paint-by-number? Did I get a good deal on the Tiki tidbit tray?
With cooler weather coming soon (I hope) I will tend to spend more time in the kitchen. I am a baking fool once the holidays are upon us.
I was wondering if anyone would be interested in seeing some of my tried-and-true mid-century recipes that have been in my family for so long? Or maybe some that I have made from my collection of cookbooks from that era?
