Are you familiar with a vintage dough riser?
This is a vintage or antique dough riser. I fell in love with the cover first. It was red. (although I don't think it came that way and was painted at sometime). It's fairly big. Maybe too big for my small kitchen but I may use it for a kitchen utensil display. If it is just too big for my house, I will use it outside in my garden. I paid $19 for it.
My great grandmothers may have used something like this for bread to feed their large families, but thankfully I have never had to bake that much bread. It would hold a lot of dough.
I spotted this old rolling pin for $2. I thought it must be fairly new because it looked like it was hardly used.
But then I saw the 59 cent price scribbled on the end and decided to buy it. It will stay "hardly used" at my house.
I was so thrilled to find more funnels for $4 each. Funnels are one of my newer collections.
One side was prunes and one side was the NRA. It's the National "Recovery" Act from the Great Depression era (not the National Rifle Association.)
A great old crate at $16.
A very fun set of S & P shakers from Napco, 1956. I collect Christmas items from my childhood and these were from the year of my birth. I bought them for $4.
These little hand knit children's mittens were $2 each. Perfect for winter/Christmas vignettes.
I also bought this primitive paper towel holder for $6. Not sure where this will end up. Maybe paper towels, but just maybe part of a re-purposing project.
An old beat up lunch box $8. It appeals to my junkier side.
