I seem to be lost between the '40s to '60s if you measure me by my surroundings. I've been organizing some of the vintage items, including kitchen tools, dishes & linens. These pictures are just an example of what there is. At long last I've gone through a lot of garden items, from small pots to substantial crocks. I used some of them to make pickles from our garden but they'd also work for sauerkraut or kimchi.
There are lots of odd things like an original metal frame from a 1960 Butterfly chair; hand forged andirons; old coal bucket, irons and assorted vintage glass light fixtures.
You'll be able to take an early look when you pick up your order this Friday afternoon. The SALE will be advertised to the general public for SAT May 23 from 11-4. Come to the former BONNI BAKES building at 930 12th St W, not my TreeHouse. Sorry no credit cards.
I received sad news that an incredible woman, Libby Blatt, died this week at age 92. She had a long musical career as a bass player & was a member of Quin Tango. She only stopped touring a few years ago. Libby was also the person who hand wrote the original recipe that became my BONNI BAKES' Stromboli. I was fortunate enough to meet her over lunch once & she lit up the room. What an amazing lady & inspiration. The world is a little darker today. To see what you missed, here she is playing with Quin Tango.
If that fabulous music makes you hungry, keep reading.
