Serious Eats: Talk
yard sales, thrift stores & flea markets...
... = some great kitchen finds!
Got back to using good old cast iron after finding 3 kinda cruddy skillets... Griswold, Wagner & Lodge that cleaned up GREAT... $1 each.
Found a "vintage", crank up/down, Kitchenaid stand mixer at a thrift store... $19.99. Found a spare bowl a few weeks later.
Earlier this week found a Cuisinartfood processor with a HUGE messa extra slicing/shredding disks for $8!! First thought was extra bowl for FP I already HAD... but this one ended up larger capacity.
Bought a bread machine at a yard sale... cuz looked like never even used?!? Worked great but didn't really get into using it, so cleaned it up really well and donated to another thrift store.
Found HUGE lot of Fiestaware dishes at a yard sale... $50. That's WAY more than I'm usually willing to spend. But came home with 12+ place settings (dinner plate, salad/sandwich plates, bowls, mugs, and a few extra things.
Always on lookout for things I'd like to try but unwilling to spend REAL $$ on.
Anybody else in the "club" with me?
