bowls and dips

i hit a few estate sales last friday and walked away a bit disappointed. not much left by the time i got there, but when you go on the second day, that is the risk you are taking. the one thing i did find is the yellow chip and dip bowl pictured above. about a year ago, me and a couple of my friends were at a sale that had a few of these. one friend took one home, and i always regretted that i didn't buy the second one. then a few months ago, i found the white one in the background of the picture and was thrilled. no more non-buyers remorse :) when i saw the smaller one on friday, i had to add it to my collection!

these bowls feature a large bowl for chips/bread and then a metal piece that sits around the rim which holds a smaller bowl for dips. it was such a great invention and i don't know why people aren't reproducing them (at least i haven't seen any). maybe i am the only kooky person who thinks these are cool :)

  1. Oh em gee!! Tiffin, I was just telling my sister the other day, while we were at the thrift store, that I'm really finding myself attracted to amber coloured glass. And here you are with the coolest chip and dip bowl. Why am I not surprised?!! Ok, tell me now.....what is the next thing I'm going to love and want to collect? Hee.


thank you so much for taking the time to leave a comment. i love reading each and every one and am thrilled you decided to visit linwood avenue!
