Happy Summer, Everyone:
So, I was headed somewhere this morning and the "Estate Sale" sign snagged me. In the house I find this apple peeler in pristine condition. No, I mean literally pristine, with the safety coating still on the cutter edges and no paint gone off the gear teeth. Not sure if it was the real deal or a cheap knockoff, I bit at $12.
Once home, I nervously checked Lehman's and THERE IT WAS, a real "Reading 78" Apple Peeler, ON SALE for $190. Nineteenth Century technology at its best. Here's a video of it in action peeling TEN apples a minute: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LeuWD...
Cross another longtime want off my list. Now I'm looking for a similar-quality cherry pitter.
What have you all found so far this year, and what are you dreaming of finding?
PS Right alongside the peeler were 4 West Bend solid copper Moscow Mule mugs, 50 cents apiece. Got those too.
