Welcome to VTT sponsored by my friend Suzanne (who always knows when you need a card and exactly what to say in it) at Coloradolady. This week, I'm featuring one of the finds from our antiquing jaunt a couple weeks back. I think my Mom had one of these. It's a "Modern Tri-Top Chip and Dip bowl" from Indiana Glass.
The thing we like best is the way the hanger for the small bowl works. It actually clips onto both bowls, making the dip bowl very secure, so....
We can use it for Rob's famous Guacamole without worrying that the dip will crash into the chips.
Or, we can use it for some of my favorite fabulous Peach Salsa.
The box is as much a find as the bowl. It has all the cardboard inserts that secured the bowls for shipping. And, it has the original K-Mart Price tag with all but the last digit still there. The bowl cost $2.90 something new. I think we paid about $12 for it and I found one on ebay that started at $15 + $16 shipping, so I'm proud of our bargain. But, as much as we like it, it would have been worth it even if we'd overpaid a little.
Take care and have a great VTT and wander over to Suzanne's and see her husband's pocket watch collection. But whisper, Steve doesn't know he's a collector yet.
