1950’s Bib Apron, Yellow Roses

31 Jul

20170727_124537Lovely yellow roses pattern on this vintage 1950’s bib apron.  Cute ruffled pocket on right side.  In very good vintage condition. Background is black and white bows.

Growing up during the 50’s and 60’s era, almost every mother I knew wore an apron.    My mother had her everyday aprons which were sturdy cotton and usually in a lovely cheerful pattern.  The frillier half aprons in fabulous gauzy chiffons and light weight patterned cottons, were reserved for serving Sunday dinner.   I still have my mothers full bib apron which shows a lot of wear and I cherish it.  It brings back memories of her great cooking.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting photos of vintage clothing that will be available in my booth at the next Ottawa Vintage Clothing Show at the Carleton Fieldhouse on Nov. 12th 2017.

Fire King Kitchen Aids Splash Bowl Set

31 Jul

20170709_202310

These  Fire King bowls are in mint condition and are quite hard to find in a complete set.  Surfaces appear unscratched and in shiny condition.  Wonderful graphics of kitchen items.   They are the splash bowls, so named because the wider top reduced the amount of splashing when mixing up liquids in them.   These date to the 1950’s.

This set of 3 bowls will be available for the next Ottawa Antique and Vintage Market at the Carleton University Field House this fall on November 4th and 5th, 2017.  I will bring some of my best and hard to find Pyrex and Fire King pieces.  These pieces will only be available at the show.
