funny how the old stuff works and lasts sooooo much longer than what you buy today....I wish I still had my old toaster .......how many have we gone through now....!
that is just too cool , what a treasure
*laughing and waving*Hello ol' long time friend to Juniper!How cool is that....
Karen: we had her toaster too, which went on for ages!This mixer is so friendly - instead of coming on at high speed and throwing the stuff everywhere, it takes a while to warm up to speed ;-)
I found one comparable on Ebay. The bid was up to $300.00 with five days to go, and no sentimental value! It was different back then, when they did not produce things made to last only a year so you had to buy a new one. Those were the days they spelled greed PRIDE! Great item.
Yep, hard to believe nowadays but once upon a time things were built to last. Interesting take on the theme. Well done.
I truly miss those old appliances that often outlasted marriages and houses. My parents' stove was still going strong 42 years after they bought their house and furnished it. A new stove might last a decade.It saddens me that modern life is so ephemeral. I wish things would last longer than they do. Thank you for the timely reminder - and for the very creative twist on this week's theme!
