Checks out my thrift store find.

I can’t wait to put some Cerignola Olives in it. I’ve never heard of an Olive Boat.

What have you found lately.

  1. I've had one of these for years. Don't use it so much anymore as it started feeling a bit contrived :)

      That’s interesting. I love single purpose gadgets. I guess that’s the Virgo in me.

        Well, watch out for that "contrived" feeling ;)

        I love to hunt for old cast iron. I found two small old ones at Goodwill a few weeks ago. I use them both inside and outside. I also season them and give them to friends. Very fun.

        I think I might go to a thrift store today- if I score, I will post!

          Cool...I too, collect cast iron. It seems that every ones after it.

          I was getting ready to edit this when I saw your reply. I think I'd use it if I were doing more "composed" hors d' doeuvres. But mine seem to be a bowl of mixed olives (maybe with cubes of feta), cheeses, pates, crackers, etc. My set also came with the little bowls for the pits which I will use on occasion. And I am DEFINITELY not into one trick ponies :) It's alright for me to keep it because they sit behind the salad and dessert plates.
          PS: It's against our marital guidelines :) to take things OUT of thrift stores. We do the reverse. ALOT.

        1. A like-new stainless lid for my 10" All-Clad omelette pan. It's similar (but not identical) to the actual AC lid, & for 47 cents (incl tax!) I'm happy.

            You never can have enough lids. I find myself using 12 X 12 foil squares for lids all the time.

              Ouch! How do you make a handle on that?! :-D
