Old Radios


We had a very busy and fun weekend.  We also went to our first auction and it was quite interesting.  I found, as a thrift store shopper, that things were going for more than I like to pay but S could not resist a few things.  He bid on a set of small old radios and, with that success, decided to bid on the big radio too (this one is as tall as the door handle on the door).  He has always loved old radios and we are now getting quite a collection.
And then he bid on some old bowls for me...and even my kicking him in the shin as he bid didn't stop him from getting them. ;-)

Fun! I can see the attraction in collecting those old radios. The wood gives such a warm, homey feel - especially compared with all the plastic everything's made of these days.
Ooooh, those bowls! What are they made of? Look like fantastic mixing bowls and very pretty, too.

We had bowls like these growing up and the Very Fine One came out at Christmas: buttercup yellow on the outside, and white on the inside and my mom would let me help make cookies...I must have been 5-6 I think. I felt so grwon up using those bowls! :-)

I love old radios! We had a console style radio/record player for many many years but eventually ran out of room. They are so well made and they just fascinate me :)

Ooh, I'm a big bowl collector. Love the bowls. Love that big radio, too. Gorgeous piece of work.
