in shopping - 13 February 2009
There IS someone who answers your wishes! On the way to work this morning I spy out the corner of my eye this wonderful Imperia pasta machine in the Martlets Hospice charity shop.
It looks like it has only been used once or not at all as the manufacturing grease is still in the mechanism corners. A jolly good clean and buff and this thing will be like new - all for a snip at £22.50. That got me a-thinking that charity shops may be a good little source for good quality kitchen equipment. I also saw some lovely vintage cake stands and a superb, sturdy 60s manual whisk on offer too. But I must say this charity shop in North Road, Brighton is particularly brilliant for vintage china and cookware - maybe they found out I work around the corner?!
My darling Imperia, we are going to have a wonderful life together!
