Garage Sale and Thrift Shop Kitchen Ware!! Or A Cook is Only as Good as Her Kitchen Tools!

Posted on

I have been posting a lot of cooking recipes lately, especially soups and chilies so I was thinking about how lucky I am to have found so many great pieces of cookware at garage sales and thrift stores.  Don’t be afraid to buy cookware at thrift sales or garage sales, a good scrub or a trip through the dishwasher and they are good as new.  And a heck of a lot cheaper.


This beautiful blue enamelled cast iron pot with it’s lid and matching serving bowl was a fantastic find at a garage sale last summer.  For only $10 it was a steal.  It is my new favourite pot, nothing sticks to it too.  And that is saying a lot because I have a collection of Le Creuset enamel ware that we bought when we were living in Germany (dirt cheap) that I love very much.  But this is now my go-to.


This long bread pan and the Denby stoneware baking dishes, one even has a lid were only $10 all together.  The bread pan is amazing for meatloaf too and I made what I have been told; is the best meatloaf ever in this pan.  Maybe I should post that recipe too.  It’s awesome.


These white baking pans were all thrifted.  I realized after taking the picture that the lonely one on the lower left has a twin but it was in the dish washer.  These all cost me about $2.99 – $3.99 a piece, sometimes I got them on 50% off days, so they were even cheaper.

Hopefully, if you love or even like to cook, you have some great pieces of cookware that make cooking a pleasure.  I know I get excited to cook when I have good pieces that never fail me.  Hope you are lucky at garage sales and thrift stores finding great pieces too.  Cheers, Michele

    – vintagethrі is a little plain. You coսld lօok at
    Yahoo’s front page and see hoѡ they create news titles to grab people to
    open the links. You might add a related vidеo or a
    related pictսre or two to grab гeaders excited about what you’ve gott to
    say. In my opinion, it could make your website а little bit mоre interеsting.

      Thank you so much for your comments. I tried having grabby titles and people complained they couldn’t understand what the post was about. So I try to keep it more simple to give people an idea right away if they want to read the post. I am still figuring it all out so it is a work in progress. I am hoping to have videos linked in the future, but I am nervous about appearing on film to make the videos. I just have to figure that out too. thank you again for reading my blog and letting me know what you think. Have a great weekend. Cheers, Michele
