Thrift Store Pickin's! We've Been Falling Down On The Job A Little Where Thrifting Is Concerned But Here's A Little Somethin' We Got Lately. Status: Bright And Shiny!
It's Orange...it's plastic...the Girlfriend never had a chance. There was no way this wasn't coming home with us. She loves the color orange and...well, you already know how she is about plastic. I spotted the plastic ware and showed her the set and picked up the coffee decanter for myself. It's a Fred Press!
This is a nice little set! I love the Orange / Confetti color of the plastic. It's pretty thick too.
Designed to last! The color makes me think of a Dreamsicle. Mmmmm, remember those?
And Push Up Pops? Those two are some of my favorites. You know...if you mix Vanilla
Vodka and Orange soda it tastes just like a Dreamsicle!
I thought this set would match some other Orange plastic ware that we picked up lately but it
turns out that the other set was more "streaky" than Confetti speckled. Thinner too. But the
Orange color is just about the same. You know what we could use this set for? Ice Cream!
With warm caramel or something in the "gravy" boat!
Or I could just brew up a pot of coffee, serve it out of this great Fred Press decanter and
into the Orange Confetti cups! Neah...that'll never happen. I ain't got time to be brewing no
coffee. This is just for collecting and looking at. Maybe selling. Anybody want a nice piece
of Fred Press to ad to their collection?
