It's moments like this that erase all the horrid images of disease-infested cat hoarders, cross dressers and other undesirable sights. Makes thrifting a hell of a lot more pleasant. Oh and +1 on the pics!
My wife would go crazy for that Kitchenaid! She's been pestering me about a bright pink one at Williams Sonoma for about the last year. She has a perfectly good serviceable (and pretty new too, maybe 3 years old) white one. Maybe women collect these things as we do suits and shoes? In any case, this is a perfect example to always check the housewares. The Accolade is the upper model too. Score!!
Those Kenwoods are beauties, too.
LOL bright pink... a pink one of those sold for $200 on ebay recently. Sell your white one and you'd probably make enough to do the swap, if you're patient for a pink one.
My only disappointment about the mixer is the Accolade is discontinued - they went to a "Professional 5 Plus" or something. Apparently this model is still well regarded, though. Really need to pin my wife down on whether she wants to keep it or not!
Maybe you'll get to admire those beauties for yourself soon!
ANYONE IN COLUMBUS this Saturday the 28th, jkidd and I are hoping to meet up to hit a store or two and maybe get a drink and chat - anyone in the area who's interested, feel free to PM either of us!
