My New Stove!



Ta-Da!  Looky here bloggy peeps!
A 1963 Westinghouse terraced topped electric range -
Robins Egg Blue For *free*!
  
I found it on craigslist and I was so scared I wouldn't get to it in time!
Can you believe it?  Isn't it awesome!
The only downsides are that the oven doesn't work, it's missing the bottom drawer and it's a built- in so the sides aren't pretty but it was FREE!
Here's a couple of close ups.  Wish it was sunny today to get better pics!  I plan on using this stove as a display piece in my future booth but will also price it HIGH because I want everything to be for sale in my booth.
What?  You want to see me model it?  Okay!  
I wanted to do a goofy "price is right" photo shoot with it but both my nearest neighbors were outside so I was embarrassed!  Ha-ha!
I especially like this last pic because it shows how big my tummy is!
I have now successfully gained back all the weight I lost!
It took me a couple years -but I did it and you can, too!  Ha-ha!  Might as well laugh.

I'm still giddy with excitement over this stove!

PS I have no idea why my font on top is so weird!

★Carol★ said...

My dream stove! One that's really pretty, but doesn't work, because I hate to cook!!! Seriously, I hate cooking so much that I want to remove the stove and put a Hoosier in it's place...

You're so funny! I gave up sugar and flour for a few months and lost weight. And then Halloween came. Now I've got a Butterfinger Belly!

Pam~ Virginia Retro said...

Great stove Holly! Can't get a better bargain than free! Love the semi price is right pose, LOL.

Awesome stove! I hate when booths have those doggone NFS tags! Yay for you that everything will be for sale. And please give notice when said booth becomes a reality, because I will need to plan a road trip! Lol

Congrats on the gain! It is work, but I have done it more than once lol!
