Ooooh, Janeray, look what I found!


Bakelite flatware. RED Bakelite flatware.


(Wait, did I spell that right?)

Faye, our dealer-neighbor at The Vintage Bazaar, had a giant box of it in her shop downtown. I grabbed all the pieces that weren’t wobbly or brittle. Faye told me that somebody else had already snapped up most of the soup spoons. Darn.


It’s not a matching set. There are at least seven different patterns here. You’ll have to mix and match the place settings.


I like it better that way, anyway. Hope you do, too.

Yep, they’re for you!
