Yard Sale, Thrift Store, Junk Heap Shopping (Part 3)

@chefmd I need a green-with-envy icon. That is a great bargain. I've never seen anything larger than a #8 here in southern California. And since the shelter-in-place order from our Governor in March, there's been no thrift shopping. I'm jonesing to go thrift shopping again so bad they may have to put me into a medically-induced coma to help me survive. 😏

 

Ditto on the cast iron envy and on the thrift shopping envy!  

I'm really enjoying David Lebovitz's book Drinking French.  I'd like to give it to a number of friends along with a pair of cocktail glasses and an ingredient for a cocktail I think they'll like.  I'd really like to get shopping for those glasses as I know it will take me a while to gather enough of them!

I was missing thrifting as well.   Northern VA is still closed but our beach house AKA Beach Dacha is in Maryland and I take full advantage of that.  This is the first time I found #9.  I will take a photo of our neighbors (antique store owners) massive Griswold pan over the weekend.  Can’t even start to guess what size it is.

@Porthos here is my neighbor’s #20 Griswold.  Regular skillet is for comparison, not sure if it is 8 or 10 inch.

@chefmd Impressive. Given that the numbers relate to the "eye" size on a stove, the owner of such a pan would have to own a very large stove.
