1950's Appliances - Update!!

Whoo hoo! Talked to the guy who is selling these. Great guy! Super nice and friendly, and he says the appliances are already sitting in his garage, ready to load.

Told him about my blog, and how he was a hero here! He posted under the Vintage Christine Giveaway post.

Ha ha guess I shouldn't have admitted here how nervous I was about this. I bet I sounded like a dork when he read about it lol... Let this be a lesson to you, don't be a nerd on your blog like I was. Ha ha.

Now, to hire my friend, fingers crossed, and he can hire a couple of his workers (he's a General Superintendent in a major construction company) but he'll need the help because like I said, he and I are both old and crippled... Har! The joys of growing old!

If not, I will have a moving freight company get it.

Either way, Now my kitchen will look like she did in her glory days back in the late 50's! A dream come true!


Don't forget to enter Christine's Giveaway, one post below this one~


  1. so cute, I love 50s "enamel pink" as I like to call it.
    Recently someone was giving away a ton of vintage appliances (big ones) one craigslist but since I'm in an apartment... moving in 6 months... had to let them go into the universe without me

  2. Oh oh oh I am SO happy this is working out for you! Did you find out why he's getting rid of all these fabulous appliances? He can't possibly be UPgrading because these are about as UP as you can get. Oh oh oh again--tell your friend to make all the workers wear wifebeater t-shirts and take lots of pix. Aren't you just so happy you could scream?!

  4. I am also glad to know that the seller was good enough to sell these things instead of trashing beautiful pieces of history!

  5. I am SO happy for you!! And green with envy.

  6. so pleased it's worked how, fabulous! And yeah well done on him for passing on and not trashing them!

  7. Thanks all my (((friends))) for being happy for me and supportive of me. You guys and gals are the bestest!

    I suppose his darling wife simply wanted a different look in the kitchen. We gals have our own ideas about how we like our homes.

    I in turn never dreamed I would ever get 1950's pink kitchen appliances. Ever. The one's I have are so sadly in such terrible, non-recoverable shape. It's always been a heartache of mine. I assumed I'd have to settle for some new appliances, maybe in brushed metal or something that would "sort of" work, and just be content.

    But this is a dream come true. Next to being able to have my childhood home and the chance to have it restored, this is the second best thing I ever got.

    OK, I guess I have made myself sound like a real sap by now!

  8. good for you! i'm so jealous, but very happy for you :)

  9. Yippee, I am so happy for you!!!!!!!!!!!

    P.S.-I did hear from the seller, she was cool and offered me a refund for the dress and will send me a label to return it to her. I offered her for me to keep the dress in return for a partial refund or if she's not down with that I would be cool with returning the dress for a full refund. I hope that was okay to do, I guess we'll find out! lol

  10. I love those! What a lucky find. I am looking to buy a house and am reading your blog for mid-century inspiration. Thanka a ton!

  11. I love vintage appliances. Even though I am not in the situation to create my dream kitchen, I comb Craigslist looking for them; this one looks about as mint as you can find!

  12. OMG--this was in our first kitchen! Exactly! Lived there from birth to 3 yrs was an architect and he still has the rad Eames and Herman Miller stuff I hope to inherit some day! Congrats!

  13. How estatic you must be! Yeah for you! It's an awesome find and I'm sure they are going to be treasured and rightly so! Yeah!
