I [heart] Davids · More E&A Updates – Flea Market

More E&A Updates – Flea Market

Saturday we spent a few hours at the Flea Market. Everybody got something they were really happy with. Dave got a bottle of some old 7-Up soft drink branded for the Cleveland Browns. He was delighted!

I got a waist apron for $10. I’ve been wanting a very traditional waist apron and I think this is perfect. I purchased it from a woman at the flea market that I used to patronize frequently. She’s really sweet and I like shopping from her. Check out the print – it’s a Floridian print with ships off the coast in the distance, pumas, tropical trees and oranges. I really love it.
Apparently, Claudia McGraw is from Black Mountain, North Carolina and had a storied history of making aprons for Eleanor Roosevelt. I don’t have any corroborating evidence of this, so if you have more free time than me, you can let us know if you can find any. 🙂
AND I found this amazing mixer from the 70s. It’s a J.C. Penney’s wall-mount mixer in brilliant orange. It opens to reveal the removable cord and beaters. Isn’t it beautiful?! It works, too. I checked.

Amber and Eric found a really pretty vase for cheap, and Kerri found the perfect necklace she’d been looking for. Yay!!!

    I found your post through a google search for Claudia McGraw. I read about her last night in a Southern Living magazine from 1976 (I just inherited a TON of magazines that are all at least 20 years old). The article basically said she was big stuff in the apron world for decades starting sometime around the 30s. I’m jealous of your apron!

    Do you still have the Claudia McGraw Apron ?
