Last Redmond post, I swear! I just had such a great time... My mother in law, Betty and my sister in law Amanda took Casey and me to the town's Antique co-op. So much fun! Amanda has written about in the past on her blog. I love vintage stuff, and the prices were reasonable, a nice change from Portland. The different booths were all so interesting and set up very nicely. I love taking photos in stores, and this place was set up so that I could do so without too many people noticing. Here are a few things I noticed, but did not buy:
I love this stewardess thermos!
And these old spice tins were bright and cheerful.
This was the store front, sign is super cute, we are not so photogenic in this pic, it was cold!
What I did buy that day was this gingham jar set! I love it, it is so delicate and pretty. I love gingham, I think I talk about it a lot on this blog.
While we were there I fell in love with this vintage espresso pot, which thanks to google I found it is called a Moka Pot. I have never seen a ceramic topped pot like this.
I didn't buy it, it was 25 dollars, same price pretty much for the one I bought at IKEA, here is that one:
Not so cute is it??? So the price for the vintage one was not bad at all. But I get weird and stingy and so I decided to think about it. The next day while I hanging out with Amanda, Casey and his mom went and picked it up for me as a surprise! I was so happy. The pot makes really, really good espresso, here is evidence.
It really tastes different, I have no idea why.
I love the yellow color too. So anyway, I am not going to use this everyday, mostly for weekend breakfasts and company. But, it is nice to know that Andrew (my brother in law) can each have our own pot of espresso when we binge drink it! I love this. Can you see how we were spoiled in Redmond?
I cannot find any info on the maker or how old this is on the internet, which intrigues me. I really want to know more about this pot.
