Re-Thinking Fun Finds







Happy Memorial Day! I've been fortunate enough to be working in the Finger Lakes region of New York and between helping people LifeStyle their vacation homes and working on redesigning some clubhouses for The Riedman Companies I've been able to sneak in some shopping at the local flea markets, Goodwills and thrift shops.

Today I was at the Avon Flea Market and it was so hot and muggy a lot of the vendors left early but  a glass deviled egg plate caught my attention and always in stylist mode I scoped out the rest of the tables and found this!

At first I had no idea what to do with it but it was interesting so I made him a very low offer - less than half. After offending him I was resigned to walking away but after I made it about 50 feet I realized this was truly something special so I paid his price. It turns out that these were creamers - probably from the 40's or 50's. They are probably about 2 oz each and cute as can be.

I'm thinking about using them for the Prosecco Bar that I have been wanting to do at brunch - these will be perfect to fill with various fruit, simple syrups and purees to add.

What items have you found that you have used in a different way?
