Today is the third Sunday of the month and that means it's time for the Long Beach Flea Market! It was nice and breezy when I got there and then I found these four Midwinter 'Sun' plates and hauling them around made it a bit tiresome as it got hotter and then on the last row I found the vintage Le Creuset pot and let me tell you, hauling around cast iron in the sun isn't as much fun as it sounds but at least I got a workout?
The plates are a pattern I've been stalking for a while now. They're easy to find on eBay but they do get expensive. I snagged these four for $10. The Le Creuset is an iron bottom "E" which means it's 4.5 quarts and the bottom tells me it's from the 80s. It's in a great school bus yellow color and the interior was a bit browned with years of use but my trick for that is to soak it in water and a bit of dishwashing detergent. Cleans it to bright white every time. $35 is what I paid for that. I guess this means I have to cook and serve dinner tonight?
