Thrifting Kitchenware...

A post somewhat dedicated to Mrs Biscuit

Ever since that fateful day when Mrs Biscuit was first to click on that "follow" button on this little ol' blog o' mine.. I have been on a hunt to thrift the perfect biscuit tin to send as a little thank you... (it was so surprising to know that someone out there was reading my ramblings! and someone I didn't even know!! [yet!] I feel like we are getting to be good bloggyBuds tho :] ) - this is how I feel about all "personal blogs" I read.. like I am getting to know a friend a little bit better with each and every post I read..

Here are some tins & jars I've come across in my travels..


 All from Tesco

These are all shiney and new.. and I really like each one for different reasons.. but I kinda feel like it's too easy to just go and buy one to send... do you have a favourite??

Also, with our shared love of thrifting.. I just think it would be so much more fun if I could thrift one... but trying to thrift a biscuit jar is harder than ya think!! Needing to take into account that it will be making a trans Atlantic journey is a major hindrance... then also finding one that isn't all dented and scungy inside is another...

A while ago, I saw a French Moulinex Mouli Grater for £4 at the Salvation Army around the corner from my work, and now I'm kicking myself for not buying it... considering I just found this post selling one for £15.70.. GAH!! but I can be a bit funny about buying kitchenware from charity stores... I usually sterilize anything that I will be eating with or off in boiling water with a bit of bleach.. everything else I wash in hot soapy water regardless...

  1. A whole post dedicated to me?!? WOOHOO! Thanks sweet Caz Lady!!! I never knew that by clicking follow I would end up making such a good blog buddy all the way across the world!
    I heart Biscuit Jars, old and new! That bamboo looking one is especially cool, but I definitely appreciate your desire to thrift one... When I find extra cool thrifted goods it makes me feel like I've found something rare, that no one else can easily find...
    Except of course we don't have Tesco here... Haha!

  2. LOL!
    I will continue on my quest to thrift one.. if I don't thrift one by July before I leave for Canada, then I may see what Tesco have to offer.. :D

    That's how I feel about thrifting too, that I am finding something noone else will have! :)
