On fire

Photo by JEREMY SAMUELSON

Quite some time ago I noticed these cool vintage Dansk pepper mills in a display in House Beautiful. I had no idea they were pepper and salt mills. I thought they were interesting wood sculptures. When I read what they were I was searching the Internet in no time. Unfortunately, I discovered that they were more than I could justify paying for a pepper mill. The prices began in the neighborhood of $150 or more which is nowhere near my 'hood. So, I made a note and posted it in the back of my mind. Saturday I was at a faraway thrift store when there it was among the pots, pans and discarded Brita pitchers of the world. Ninety-five cents.

Now if I can only find some more.

Wow, you really are on fire! Your finds always leave me gobsmacked, but with a renewed hope that good deals are still out there. :)
