thrift store finds??

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Over the years, I've made some pretty good finds of GOOD kitchen stuff at thrift stores and yard sales.  Picked up a blue enamel, square, Le C grill pan for $5... inperfect condition... except for VERY minor schmutz in interior crevices.  Bought a Cuisinart food processor... with all the blades/discs for $8.  Found a crank-up, "vintage" KA stand mixer for $20... runs great.

 

Yesterday, found a spare BOWL for it... $4.95 on tag, but HALF PRICE!  WOO!  HOO!  They're around $60 new... this one shows signs of use but no abuse.

 

What second-hand finds have you made?

Digging through a bunch of junk/rusty tools at a garage sale yesterday in the 25cent bin I found a knife sharpener. Score! Its only a $5-10 tool you can buy online but for that price its a steal.

A couple of years ago I found a Fagor pressure cooker in excellent condition, for $7.99.  Over the years I've scored many things at yard sales and thrift stores.  I hardly ever find anything I might be looking for specifically,  though.  It's always a surprise what I'll discover.

And for name-brand things, you can often find the manuals online, if you need them.
