I’ve never been a Christmas baker, how about you? My sister has always done tons of baking at Christmas, although she has started to cut back a little in recent years.
Certainly baking for the holiday season is a tradition that goes way back. So I’ve managed to accumulate quite a bunch of vintage baking items that I’ll take into the shop this week. As I was sorting through them and adding price tags, I thought I would take photos and share them with you guys.
I’ve got a couple of rolling pins and two glass jars full of vintage cookie cutters. I’ll sell each jar with its contents.
My favorite cookie cutters are the ones with painted wooden handles.
I also have a few flour sifters.
I don’t know that anyone actually uses these to sift flour these days, but I thought they’d be fun with little Christmas trees in them.
The vintage Betty Crocker cookie (or should I say ‘cooky’) cookbook is perfect for adding a little Christmas décor to the kitchen too.
I love that it still has its original $1.95 price tag on the front.
I even have some toy sized vintage kitchen gear.
This set came with a little note that said “Lorraine’s toys 1925”. How adorable is that?
Also in the ‘Christmas baking’ category, I’ve painted up this little stool and added the Milk & Cookies stencil from wallcutz.
Here’s how the stool started out …
It was so filthy dirty! And it had paint splatters all over it, and one wonky leg. I cleaned it up, then gave it a fresh coat of Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth. Then I taped off some sections of the Milk & Cookies stencil and added it to the top using Dixie Belle’s Caviar.
It’s a petite little thing, only 1′ tall. It would be perfect for placing under the tree with a plate of cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.
I’ll be taking all of these goodies and more into the shop this week. The stool is priced at $30, so if any of you locals want to snatch it up before Wednesday be sure to let me know.
Now, how about you? Do you bake a lot for the holiday season, or are you more of a non-baker like me? Leave a comment and let me know!
