I Don't Know What to Say: Chafing Dishes Part II

It happened again. That out of body experience when I see sparkly chafing dishes for sale. It happened this morning at an estate sale.

I was actually fine until the person in charge announced that everything was half price.

As a result I also bought an ice crusher because it reminded me of my grandmother Mamaw. Mamaw and Papaw lived in an apartment they built above their dry cleaners (Vogue Cleaners) in Kingsville, Texas. Because my grandfather was an entrepreneur and a shopper, Mamaw had every appliance that she never wanted. She served her grandchildren sparkling burgundy (non-alcoholic) over crushed ice in colored aluminum glasses.

I couldn't resist the ice crusher and was fully prepared to pay for it (all of $3.50) when he said it was free. It really is all in the eye of the beholder.

My favorite- it actually has a hinged cover.
