Vintage Kitchen Scales


Popping in to share these scales I found at an antique sale. I couldn't believe my luck when I found two in the same day, at the same sale, and even the same type (Chicago made Way-Rite). My vintage lovin' pal Char and I have been on the lookout for scales during our thrifty travels and never come across them.

I found the green one first for $8 and shortly after stumbled across the white one for $22. I was madly texting Char and sending pictures on the iPhone to see if she wanted the white one, but couldn't reach her. I took a chance and grabbed it anyways.

In the end we decided the green one was better suited to her kitchen and the white one to mine, although we were both happy with either. They are a little beat up but my husband tested each with a pound of butter and said they are both spot on. Not that I bought them to actually weigh anything!

Thanks for peeking. I'm linking up to Linda's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays
