Vintage Kitchen Gadgets On Etsy Plus Vintage Tips

Maynard
Knife Sharpener
Here I am again, just blogging away...lol. Vintage kitchen items are some of my favorite things, right behind vintage toys, so I thought I'd showcase a few things I have listed on Etsy. I remember when I was little my mother would pull out HER mother's old hand mixer to make some of her favorite recipes. She would only use a hand mixer for scrambling the eggs to make French Toast or the yolks for scrambled eggs. She said it gave true meaning to the expression "Made With Love", and she would always let me help : ).

Jelly Press-Coming Soon!
I found this vintage aluminum jelly press last fall. It was love at first sight! I made sure to keep busy so I wouldn't have time to list it, but the time has come, and it will be going into my Bonanza Booth at some point this weekend. I'll miss it dearly, but I just know whoever buys it will get tons of enjoyment from it!


I like the look of old glass, but containers let you get a glimpse of the way things used to be. In a world built on plastic, it's nice to come across a GLASS vinegar bottle. I like to call it Retro-Eco-Friendly ; )

VINTAGE TIPS #1:
Vinegar...not just for fries! Plain old white vinegar is one of the cheapest household necessities you could purchase and most likely one of the most useful. Here are 3 of my favorites : )

1)  put it in a spray bottle and use it as you would an expensive, chemical filled spray cleanser
2) use it to kill weeds - spray it on the weeds full strength until they have starved, and you won't have to worry about harmful chemicals around your children and pets
3) Clean your tea or coffee pots by boiling a mixture of water and vinegar, then just rinse
