May 3, 2011 Vintage kitchen!
How a visit to a country auction turned into a full-blown obsession with vintage kitchenware and Pyrex. Take me back to the 40s please.
A few weeks ago when back in the valley for a little R&R, a girlfriend and I decided to lose our auction virginity and hit up an estate auction in Cobden, Ontario. It was here that I found two vintage Pyrex mixing bowls in red and blue. I was familiar with the Pyrex name through my mother and grandmother’s trust in this long-standing brand and knew that the bowls would stand the test of time as well as brighten up my kitchen ware.
My new-found love for auctioning combined with Etsy obsession helped me locate the missing yellow and green bowls to form my now completed, primary-coloured collection. I should give credit to Donkee House, an Etsy shop that sells vintage home decor, housewares and kitchen supplies. Donkee House, based out of Queens NY shipped my bowls up to Canada in little time with much care.
I can’t wait to clean out (yes, with my fingers) cookie dough out of these bright coloured addition to my growing vintage collection of kitchen ware.
