Carrot & stick

June 2nd, 2010

After yesterday’s An Education retro interior post Alexandra emailed to tell me about Blue Carrot Shop, where she sells vintage housewares and knick knacks and I almost wish she hadn’t, because I want everything and our kitchen is already struggling to cope with all my nonsense. But seriously, she does an amazing job curating the shop. Sure I can cruise around etsy for vintage dishes, but I didn’t even know that I wanted a frilly poodle printed tea towel or Mr. Peanut salt and pepper shakers until I just saw them, so thanks a lot Alexandra! Plus I have some kind of Pyrex dish fetish (I found a whole stack of them in my parents garage before I moved out and screamed) so I’m basically sold. Btw if you have a bit of a penchant for Pyrex – ahaha I’m sorry I couldn’t help it – the Pyrex Love blog makes for thrilling reading. I’m serious.

  2. Ahh, reminds me of my Grandma’s kitchen. Which is A Good Thing. I purloined a lot of her stuff, the giant pyrex trifle bowl with orange flowers being a particular favourite! I’m not even going to LOOK at this shop. *sits on hands*

    That pyrex love blog, yes! And I love all the vintage kitchen goodies. It makes me wish I was a little more settled and not moving to new countries constantly. Someday soon!

    Wow those are adorable! I know a few people who’d be thrilled to own those (including my mum hehe). I wish they would still sodas like those, they would sell so good I think.

    Did you purchase the Mr Peanut Salt N Pepper shakers? If so, can I ask how much you bought them for or do you remember what she was charging for them?
