A Vintage Find

On the phone to my sister the other day she told me of her great find, an old donut maker still in it's box with the price of $0.99 cents. I couldn't believe it as I had one also, but mine was broken by one of the midgets playing with it, much to my annoyance.

I met up with my sister yesterday and the gorgeous girl ( I know you'll read this sister dear) gave it to me to replace my broken one. I am thrilled to have this little beauty and before I saw the box I didn't know that it could be used for pancakes.

Thank you my sister, I owe you.

Hi there
This post is very handy indeed! I saw one of these in an op shop a few weeks ago, the vintage style and colour caught my eye... but I was not sure what it was! I figured some sort of cooking implement.... but now I know.

Some great vintage finds by the way, love your old paint set/box with the wooden pallete.
Cheers

Oh wow. I remember my Mum having one of these when we were kids. I actually remember the box better than the item itself : )
