I try to limit my shopping to thrift stores mostly because I love a bargin, but also because if I'm tempted to make an impulse purchase it usually won't set me back too badly. Such was the case recently when I just had to buy this hand held mixer. I don't know if it was because it reminded me of a type I had seen at my grandmother's house or if I thought it would actually be useful.
Unrealistically, a fault my optimistic nature, I did indeed think it could be useful. Just think of the possiblities: if the power goes out; if the power hand mixer is broken (which happens to be true right now); if I need more exercise (which is also very true!!); to save money on the power bill- never hurts, right? Anyway, my first experiment of creaming butter in sugar was totally exhausting. Fortunately, due to the fact that we are on vacation right now the cookies were saved by powered method.
Oh well, maybe I'll see if there's a market on ebay. However, on the other hand I do have a friend that loves retro..... are you there? Any more suggestions?
