Welcome to the 116th edition of Vintage Fascination.
I have always had this fascination for vintage stuff and it is said that this is multi-layered psychology. It is the excitement that makes people want to hunt for vintage products. It gets easy to find the trending stuff in the local market but when you go looking for vintage things then that is where you really have to hunt. Here are some helpful resources on buying vintage items.
My best friend and I got in a couple of hours of thrifting and antiquing on Saturday afternoon and I have a few things to share with you.
No way I was passing up this large white enamel basin edged with red around the rim. It has quite a few bumps and bruises but it is perfect for my purposes. It is 24 inches in diameter.
My Mom had these type baking pan when I was a mid-century kid. The cake pans measure 9 inches across. Made by Bake King bakeware they have metal slides to get under the cake for easy removal. These pans bring back fond memories of cakes baked by my Mom.
A Fire King creamer and sugar bowl in the Anchor Hocking Fire-King Swirl-Golden Shell pattern will match some other pieces I bought about a year ago. This creamer and sugar bowl included a cup but I didn’t picture it here. The whole set is in excellent condition and I have a saucer to match the cut. Anchor Hocking Fire-King made this pattern from the period 1965 – 1976.
