In just a few short days, the Kitchen is going on a crusade to help you “Take Back Your Weekend”*. We got a practice start in fine style recently at the Scout Vintage Market.
An old friend bought tickets to the “First Dibs” preview night. “First Dibs” is an absolutely brilliant marketing strategy whereby we got a sneak peek, wine and artisan-style goodies, some early shopping and paid $25 a ticket for the fun. *Applause* These Market chicks are savvy and every note of the event was perfect.
I felt very spoiled, and it seemed like a good idea to go with it…
So the Kitchen got some new-old treasures, including a beautiful set of pyrex mixing bowls and baking dishes, and a great old-timey serving tray. If you were a teen in the 70s, you probably learned to cook with dishes like these. Fond memories of my mama’s kitchen.
‘Cos I also have a thing for a french country kitchen I couldn’t resist the glass cheese cloche, and it pairs up beautifully with the little quails – fab finds from the neighbourhood garage sale a couple of weeks ago. (So happy together).
One of my final ‘finds’ was this little footstool. The lettering translates as “Put up your feet here”.
A perfect message for a weekend warrior – vive le revolution!
