Vintage Thingies Thursday

I happened upon a great blog this week. It's called Confessions of an Apron Queen and every Thursday she hosts a "Vintage Thingies" day. Well, I so happen to be falling in love with all things vintage so I thought I'd share one of my new vintage kitchen tools.

Behold, my Gemco food chopper! Now I must admit, upon further research, I'm not 100% sure this exact chopper is vintage, but I know there are vintage Gemco choppers out there and it does have a vintage feel to it, considering it uses manual labor and not a plug and outlet!

Anyway, I picked it up at a yard sale for $2 and I've used it once to mince garlic. It worked great. I'm excited to mince more garlic and try it with onions too. It's easier than hauling out and cleaning the food processor. Definitely a nice convenient kitchen tool to have around!

So happy Vintage Thingies Thursday and be sure to head over to Confessions of an Apron Queen to view the other vintage posts. Oh, and be sure to enter her weekly apron giveaway. Oh how I want the "Good Golly Miss Molly" apron!

It's vintage enough for me... my mom had a mint green one just like it! Worked great too. Welcome to VTT.

Sounds like you may have a trip to "Antique Alley" in your future.
