Three Dollar Pot

January 17th, 2011 at 04:26 pm

A few years ago we were browsing at one of these antique malls and I saw it. No, there wasn't a beam of light directing my was actually sitting admist a bunch of other stuff. It was a covered enamel ware pot. It was light blue and that is really what caught my eye -- I like blue. It was a size I didn't have in a pot or pan -- not huge and not tiny. I was thinking, hey, wonder what this costs.

As you may have already gathered, it was $3. No chips, it was clean, nothing burned on it. Looked like it hadn't been used, in fact.

Well, it became mine. And I've decided I got a bargain. I have cooked green beans in it. I have made soups in it. And I use it to bake no knead bread.

It's not fancy and I'm sure most chefs would turn their nose up at it.

But, for $3, it has been a workhorse for me and I'm glad I found it. I truly feel I got a bargain.

    I'd post a photo, but I cannot get one to attach...any suggestions?

    Maybe we should have our own page on three dollar finds.

    Hey, I had a light blue enamel soup pot in my antiques booth. Did you buy it? Heh, heh, probably not, I know mine was not pristine -- and I don't think it was $3 either!

    CB, unless your booth is in Central Illinois, I doubt it, but wouldn't that be a hoot???!!!!

    The most important thing is that YOU like it, and that YOU have a lot of uses for it... then the fact that it was $3 leads to a bonus on top of that! We have some Bulgarian pottery bowls that were not terribly expensive, but we use them a lot and we love them. It's not that they cost a lot or are fancy, but rather that you have some insurance that you will get a lot of use of them that matters.
