I Love Old Shit

Just the right height, baby.And by sh** I mean “things.” I like the color of them, their materials, engineering and, occasionally, smell.

This gem I got at the FREE table at the dump.  I call it my Gentlewoman’s Plunger—small and delicate enough for Lady.

With a clogged sink of late, I’d have paid yard sale top dollar—if only to buy a usable item headed for landfill that’s not yet been in a toilet. I hope.

Here’s some more old sh** I like:

How to serve crudites, a la 1957.

Flip side of trivet. From Taiwan, by way of…Mt. Vernon!

  1. I too own that little avocado pot! In 4th grade, I used it to melt wax for candle-molds. It’s still at my parents house — we don’t throw ANYTHING away….

  2. I remember when we melted wax for other purposes. But it wasn’t in that avocado beauty.
