Sears Canada has all their Heritage and Cuisinart enameled cast iron dutch ovens on for 70% off. We picked up a Heritage 7 qt yesterday for $35.99.

So, he does want it and you haven't decided to keep it.

Just in case you don't know, Lee Valley is doing free shipping on $40+ orders placed by 6 January. I'm going to order some stuff that's on my wish list on their site. This is one of the items I'm getting: Lee Valley Tools - Important Announcement

I found another one yesterday for $4--this one is mine.

Last week I stumbled across 3 dinner plates and 4 cereal/salad bowls that match my everyday dishes for $0.50 each. Replacements.com has the plates at 45.99 and the bowls at 19.99.

And the week before I stumbled across 4 wineglasses that are my everyday crystal (I don't use the Waterford except for on holidays) for 0.79 each.

For some reason, I've been lucky at the thrift stores lately. Still kicking myself in the butt that I didn't take the #3 cast-iron skillet yesterday and I can't justify the drive back in to the City to see if it is still there.

Rock--Goodwill on Merivale has 50% off day on Jan 31.

I went to an estate auction this morning and snagged a 9-1/2 qt. Le Creuset oval dutch oven. Paid more than I wanted to...a lot less than new. It is HEAVY but I can't wait to use it to make tomato sauce during garden season...

I went to an auction today and got this 9-1/2 qt Le Creuset oval ducth oven for less than 1/3 of what it lists on ebay.

ESTATE AUCTION - SUNDAY APRIL 13th MacLeans Warehouse - 1523 Laperriere Ave.

So what if the rest of my Le Creuset is blue, I know I will be using this (and gaining upperarm strength doing so--the darned thing weighs 15 lb).

The color is perfect for fall cooking in the great white north!

I love the volcanic. My set of 3 ancient Le C pans (bought in the sale in 1980) are volcanic and I managed to pick up two more in a thrift shop for £4.99. I love the colour - it cheers me up every time I get one out of the cupboard - and they are s-o-o long-lasting and useful.
