Vintage Kitchenware

I started out the morning relatively sane. You know, for me. I went to my step-mom’s house to pick her up so we could go to lunch. While we were getting ready to leave, it occurred to me that I should ask her if I could borrow a cake tin. She immediately offered up the gorgeous aqua/copper cake tin shown below.

We had a delicious lunch at Chaz on the Plaza and then I introduced her to the glory and wonder that is Trader Joe’s.

Afterwards, as we were saying our goodbyes in her garage, I spotted her stacking cookie tin and asked if I could borrow it in a few weeks. As I wistfully said I wished I could find something like it, she got a crazy gleam in her eye and said she would try to find one for my Christmas present.

I immediately went home to start searching google to see how hard it would be to find.

People, I can’t find the damned thing ANYWHERE. It’s not mentioned on vintage sites, doesn’t come up in eBay or Etsy. I suspect she’s going to have a hard time finding one.

In the course of my multi-hour search (I may have gotten distracted a few times), I realized something.

I would love to have a mostly vintage kitchen. I like the mid-century aesthetic, dig the colors and find that the bakeware is of higher quality than what we have available now.

I now want a cake tin of my own, the cookie tin, a grease jar, a range set (containing salt, pepper, sugar and flour) and more Pyrex. I always want more Pyrex.

  1. I have vintage canisters and a huge collection of faux copper Jell-o molds in my kitchen. I gathered them over a period of years at flea markets and antique malls, but once Ebay came along I quickly bought all the rest of the available designs that I wanted.

    Let me know if you’d like to make the rounds of antique malls sometime. I love doing that, but I don’t need anything for myself anymore!
