I've wanted an enamelware bread box for so long!
I've pinned them on Pinterest.
I've searched for them online.
I've looked for antique bread boxes in antique stores and malls all over kingdom come.
I've looked at reproduction bread boxes as well.
But, I could never seem to actually buy one for several reasons.
First of all, the reason I wanted a bread box was because in our wee, little kitchen,
I would keep a basket of bread in our microwave.
My family always grumbled about having to deal with the basket of bread before they could use the microwave.
In my opinion, that was better than having a loaf of bread in its plastic bag,
sitting out on the counter or on top of the refrigerator.
Since space was the issue, some enamelware bread boxes that I found were simply too big.
Then there was the price.
Antique enamelware bread boxes ranged from the $50 dollar range, for the least expensive one I found, to the $200 range.
While I love antiques, I just couldn't bring myself to pay that kind of money.
Reproductions were usually $40 and up.
Was I ever excited to find this enamelware bread box at the Goodwill for $9.99!
It's the perfect size, too!
It's definitely a reproduction, since it still had it's original World Market price tag on the bottom,
but it looks great and is just what I needed to solve the bread in the microwave issue.
Now our loaf of bread can sit on top of the refrigerator in my cute bread box.
The bonus is that my husband, who seldom notices or is impressed by my thrifty treasures,
mentioned how much he likes it a couple of different times!
Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
I love Fridays, since it's my husband's day off!
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday, friends
a BLESSED weekend.
