    How very very sad… to think of the number of chrome beauties that end up in the dumpster because of something so stupid…

    One of my mom’s best floor lamps (yet another addiction that I have) came from the garbage pile at the Salvation Army. It’s beautiful, with cobalt glass and lots of scroll work. It needed to be re-wired, and that was it.

    There is a knife-o-mat, and I just won one on ebay – new old stock with its original box! and it’s blue!

    And I was the ONLY bidder! I’m so excited!!!

    Missed it again! I guess I need to visit every day. I have many, many vintage small appliances I would have loved to send photos of some. I am a vintage small applianceaholic. My latest find was a “Baconer” from the early 70’s. My gosh, it cooks bacon like a dream! Why they ever quit making them, I don’t know!
