Here is my mom's old toaster.



And Aunt Geneva's old microwave oven.



And a similiar butcher block table to the one I have in storage.



And I use aqua glass old jars and canning jars for canisters. Like this one gallon one.



Here is my kitchen scale.



And here is the wrap dispenser I use for restaurant rolls of foil, plastic wrap, and parchment paper.

As a kid growing up we lived in several rentals and finally our own home and had some fine ranges like the Crown you display. They were the high end in their day and continued to perform excellently. Often all an old quality gas range needs is a professional cleaning of the rings and jets. Those who collect and restore such items have invested in quality appliances as well as preserving a bit of vanishing Americana.

Thanks,

Leolady. There are seven pilot lights on this baby. I cut all but one off 'cause it costs about forty a month to keep 'em on. Oooch!!

that reminds me of the stove in my folks kitchen growing up Phil. They kept it when they redid the kitchen because it was so great. Eventually the oven door broke and we couldnt find someone to fix it. Kept it propped closed for awhile then finally gave in and got a new stove... not the same.

Vintage is my MIDDLE name

Love Vintage. We own a 1967 Airstream and a 1961 FAN Travel Trailers.
And our home is furnished with vintage.

Uncle Bob....what a beautiful kitchen. The stove...to "die for". I was looking for a 1930 Magic Chef. Not to be found...yet.

I am going to try and post some Vintage things. Love all vintage. Braided/Looped rug made from old clothes. Aria

...that baby ended up in the stove junk yard and has been used for many parts for someone else. My broiler pilot light doesn't stay on, but works. The griddle has never been used. I'm tempted to make pancakes on it, but I just grab the iron skillet.
