The Object of My Desire: Hot Stuff

Photograph by Stan Williams

It's the devil with a red suit on, and he's riding a sled!

This sporty red imp atop a wooden bucket caught my eye at the Allaire New Jersey flea market this fall. This brazen little guy will magically keep your cold goods icy and of course your hot stuff, hot!  Handmade in the 1950s, this useful, insulated canister once belonged to a man who loved to entertain to a house full of friends, his niece told me. Based on the theme of this treasure  I picked up for my own party throwing, I can only imagine that her uncle's gatherings were sizzling good times.

Always Frugal, Always Fabulous,

The Elegant Thrifter
