Another impressive piece of jewelry that I was lucky to find.  This one SOLD on ebay for $40.oo.  It was made by Kenneth Jay Lane and weighs over 200 grams. You would have to have stamina to keep this one on all night.  It was probably made in the late 1980’s.

Pyrex Cinderella Mixing Bowls, Homestead Pattern

Found these two pyrex bowls at a local thriftstore in excellent condition.  These are the two larger bowls of the set of four.    Homestead was manufactured by Pyrex in 1976 and unlike the other sets of bowls,  this pattern does not alternate colours.  All  the bowls in the set are the same pattern of dark  blue on a speckled tan background, designed by artist Estelle Rothstein, and it was last available in 1980. Pyrex dropped the name Cinderella from their ads and packaging by the mid 1960’s but many of us Pyrex enthusiasts still refer to the shape by this name.

Priced individually and for sale at my booth at the Almonte Antique Market, 26 Mill Street, Almonte ON.

Sunbeam Mixmaster Stand Mixer in Chrome Finish Model 2399

Sunbeam Mixmaster

The Sunbeam-Oster Company produced this Mixmaster stand mixer in the late 1980’s.    Sunbeam acquired Oster in 1980 and they continued to make their flagship mixers that are still in production today.  This mixer is a retro looking chrome finished mixmaster,  not solid chrome like the early ones.  The mixer is detachable to use as a hand mixer.  I gave it a workout making a cake and it performed perfectly.  It was pretty dirty when I bought it at an estate sale but cleaned up very nicely.

Please note this mixer is not for Sale! I have decided to keep it for my own personal use.
