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?
