On a very different note, I popped into the Value Village today. It wasn't a brilliant day for vintage treasures for the house. I saw a seventies linen tea towel that had stylized beer steins on it, but I didn't love it enough to hang it and I just don't need anymore tea towels for drying dishes. I did notice the crock pots (above). I think the golden age of crock pottery was the late seventies/early eighties. They must have been marketed towards working moms because I remember my mom getting one (probably as a gift from my dad - LOL) and telling me how it would make her life easier because she could throw ingredients into it in the morning and by the time she dragged her weary bones home from work - voila- stew! She probably didn't say "weary bones" to me, but I can only imagine that working and raising four kids left her with very weary bones.
Of course, as soon as we got a microwave oven, the love affair with the crock pot came to a crashing end. All the crock pots you see in thrift stores seem to be in those seventies earth tones and once again, feature the woodland motif. Fondu seemed to be big in the seventies and eighties, hence the fact that most fondu pots are orange or brown.
Have crock pots made a comeback? Do you have a seventies/eighties crock pot or fondu story. Dish on my comments.
Good luck tomorrow, everyone!
