In its own way, this 1930's country store display is nearly as rare and I grabbed FOUR of them at the flea market last weekend. They came out of an elderly homeowner's garage whose family must have been in the restaurant/ food business many, many years ago. They are store displays for (rather well made)little juice extractors. One would punch a hole in the top of an orange/grapefruit and stick it in, tip it up and drink the juice! These would be perfect for 'Florida' collectors.
This is another estate sale that I went to. It was right down the street from that killer sale that I chronicled in this post. -What a cool neighborhood! Unfortunately a lot of people also thought that so, although there was a lot of old great junk at one point, it was cleaned out with great precision by the time I got to it. -I was shut out, pretty much. Oh well, can't win' em all.
Once in a great while, good 1950s advertising will come available for a bargain price. This 'Green Spot' soda tray has the streamlined design, great colors (orange is my favorite) and super clean condition that I couldn't pass up.I'm always socking away the odd kitchen accessory and this was just really cool. German (from the 1930s?), this manual slicer probably beautifully prepared a lot of Braunschweiger in its day. A very nice gadget that could prove useful one day when I'm busy with the task of building the greatest sandwich known to man.
