It’s no secret to anyone that knows me, I love to go to thrift stores and garage sales and look for that ‘special treasure’! I am always on the hunt for canning and storage jars for the pantry, and looking for special containers that work well for food gifts and special vinegars and extracts that I enjoy making.
I have a couple of recent finds that I’m excited about that I would like to share with you today:
I’ve been looking for a scale to use in soapmaking. I absolutely love this one! It has character. I know it’s not perfect, it has a crack in the finish on the face, but I love it! The red and white is perfect. And it works.
And then this…..
Yes, a cast iron hand crank grinder! Some will think this is silly, especially in these days of everything electric and/or electronic. I do have an electric grinder. I bartered with someone over 30 years ago for it, so it’s not exactly the latest and greatest. And it hasn’t been it’s old self lately. I have only been using it to make my salsa, although I am thinking about grinding my own burger.
Anyhow, since it wasn’t working so well I started looking around for a new grinder. After researching, and reading reviews on several, I decided that I’d get a hand grinder, after all I use a hand crank can opener too (lol!). Then I ran into this grinder at the Goodwill, it’s in great shape too…
And I can still get replacement blades online for it, I can’t wait to try it out!
Remember, it’s the little things. Thanks for stopping by!
