Small Kitchen Trivet – SOLD

5 Nov

Vintage kitchen trivet

Vintage kitchen trivet

How great is this vintage trivet?! I’ve come across quite a few of these over the years and they’re always quite sweet, but they’re generally a bit more twee, with sayings like ‘Bless this house’ – this one’s way cooler! And aside from the cheeky text, I also really like the illustrations – a great retro vibe!

A lovely little hot pot stand that’s sure to come in handy, or if you don’t have a need for a trivet you can always hang it on your kitchen wall as a warning to your kids!

Dimensions: 17cm long (incl. spout & handle) x 15cm wide x 2cm deep

Price: R130

Vintage TG Green Mixing Bowls – SOLD

Vintage TG Green mixing bowls

I bought these vintage TG Green mixing bowls at different times and places, but how nice to be able to show all of them off at one go! It’s also great that all three of them are different sizes, making up a set of sorts – the bowls don’t sit perfectly inside of each other (I think the largest bowl was made either earlier or later than the other two bowls), but they go together well enough. That being said I’m selling the bowls separately – there aren’t too many people out there who are that serious about their baking that they’d need three mixing bowls! But if you are a baker and you don’t have one of these bowls then shame on you – every respectable baker should have a TG Green ‘Gripstand’ mixing bowl in their kitchen cupboard!

Dimensions: Extra Large bowl – 33.5cm in diameter x 15cm tall; Large bowl – 28.5cm in diameter x 13cm tall; Medium bowl – 26cm in diameter x 11.5cm tall

Price: Extra Large bowl – R290; Large bowl – R240; Medium bowl – R200

Vintage Swing-It Juicer – SOLD

27 Oct

Swingit Juicer

Swingit Juicer

This vintage juicer is in better nick than nearly all of the Swingit juicers I’ve sold previously, although it is missing one of its rubber feet (nothing that one of those rubber floor protectors won’t fix). I’ve always loved the style of this juicer – it’s got such a comedic style to it, and while I’ve never actually tried to juice with it (that I can remember), I’m pretty sure it does a fine job of squeezing your oranges!

Dimensions: 22cm long x 23cm high x 10.5cm wide

Price: R230

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog (more…)

Small Vintage Heart Tins – SOLD

Vintage heart tins

These vintage kitchen tins are bit worse for wear, but who cares – they have hearts all over them!! It’s such a cheerful pattern, and even though the outsides of the tins are quite scuffed, the insides are in decent enough nick – definitely clean enough that they’re still functional.

A sweet set of tins that would work just as well for sewing paraphernalia and stationery as they would for brownies and cookies!

NB: These tins are smaller than your standard kitchen tins – please pay attention to the dimensions below!

Dimensions: Large tin – 17cm in diamater x 8cm tall; Medium tin – 13.5cm in diameter x 7cm tall; Small tin – 10.5cm in diameter x 6cm tall

Price: R130 for the set

Vintage Pineware Bread Slicer – SOLD

I think this style of bread slicer is probably my favourite of all the designs! There’s just something so cool abut that rounded fifties shape, and this is a particularly nice example – because of their age, these bread slicers can sometimes be a bit grimy, but bar a few scratches here and there and some minor corrosion around the control dial, this Pineware bread slicer’s in great nick!

Dimensions: 33cm long x 19cm wide x 20cm high

Price: R260

Note: Mint puts up four new items every weekday. The first post goes up at 07h00, the second at 08h00 and the third and fourth at 08h30. You can subscribe to our daily email which goes out at around 09h00 by clicking on the pink envelope on the right hand side of the blog (more…)

Collection of Kitchenalia

Collection of vintage kitchenalia

I told you that you’d be seeing loads of kitchenalia on Mint! Apologies to anyone who’s not a baker, but isn’t this a nice collection? The rice canister is a bit tinny, but quite lovely, despite the wear to its lid. On the opposite end of the spectrum we have the S&P shakers which look like they’ve barely been used, and the mini-moulds which are pretty clean. Sadly the bird funnel has a broken neck which has been glued (I only noticed the damage after I bought it), but it’s dirt cheap and will still work just fine! The onion chopper and egg whisk have a bit of age to them and a bit of wear & tear to match, but again I’m pretty sure that they’ll chop onions and beat eggs just fine!

Dimensions & Prices:

  • Onion chopper – R110; 32cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter SOLD
  • Bird funnel – R30; 9cm tall SOLD
  • Rice tin – R80; 15cm tall x 11cm in diameter SOLD
  • Mixing bowl – R85; 9cm tall x 19.5cm long x 16.5cm wide
  • Egg whisk – R110; 28cm long SOLD
  • Jelly moulds (set of 4) – R60; 4cm tall x 7.5cm in diameter
  • S&P shakers – R60; 7cm tall x 4.5cm in diameter SOLD
