Vintage Sunbeam Mixer with Attachments & Manuals
Here is the whole kit and caboodle. One of the manuals is for this mixer and one is for another Sunbeam that wasn't at the sale. I think some of the attachments may go to the missing mixer but I have not even had the chance to clean these yet, let alone sort out what all of this does
Inside one of the manuals is a note that says "Merry Christmas, 1966" Also here is the stub for the original warranty card which seems to have been mailed in.
Here are some of the attachments, a juicer thingy (made of ceramic) and some food processor blades. It came with two little bowls and one large bowl. I don't know whether to keep this mixer and ebay my other one (which is a Hamilton Beach) or vice versa. I am kinda partial to my other one, I have had it for a long time. I definitely don't need two.
I also scored these cute little cups & bowls.
Now, here is the big prize!
This fridge wasn't technically in the yard sale but I saw it peeking out from inside the garage. I asked if they would sell it and they told me I could have it for $25 because that is what the electric company gives you for turning in an old working fridge. Thats right, it still works! It is in pretty gross condition right now, as I have yet to clean it. It will need some refurbishing too. I just couldn't say no to it. It stands about 4.5 feet tall and about 3 feet wide & deep. The only manufacturer marks are the emblems that say MW which stands for Montgomery Wards. There used to be a Montgomery Wards in Ventura for a long time, in fact I used to work at in its final days. I don't know if this fridge came from that store though (but wouldn't that be cool? heh, get it...cool?).
I don't know what to do with the fridge yet. I really wanna keep it and put it upstairs in the apartment. But it doesn't have much of a freezer compartment. The bin on the bottom is a bread box apparently, not a freezer. It would look awesome with Ethel, my O'Keef & Merrit stove....maybe this is Fred the Fridge?
All in all this was a good weekend and I hung out with my BF who also got all kinds of good stuff at the sale including a 9' gold velvet sofa $5, a Magnivox console record player $35 (that is huuuuuuge) and an avocado green dining table set w/ 6 chairs that are covered in gold & green velvet $5! His roommates are not as accepting as mine though, so some of it may have to be re-homed. Maybe I can snap some pics before it goes. Thanks for reading & Happy Birthday George Washington!
