    Got a quasi-rare attachment. The potato peeler!!! Quite possibly the best thing ever engineered.

    I wonder if these would be good as fried potato skins??

    Yes, some attachments are harder to find than others. I believe there are about 14, in total.

    The peeler was expensive but I got this later parts kit for $22.50! I thought that was something I'd never find.

    It astounds me how well these attachments work.

    A funny thing happened while I was out and about today, I found an old 40s/50s cabinet for $20. It had modifications and a black paint job but it is from that time period and homemade. I have to clean it up and try to paint some areas but I wanted to see how it would display my collection.

    Sunbeam did make a cabinet for your mixmaster and it's attachments, but I doubt that I will ever find one.

    All 1930s attachments came in boxes with the bright pink labels! I only have two boxes.

    I decided to add the swirl jadeite mixing bowls, three from yards sales. Two flea market. The smallest and rarest was $2 at a yard sale!!!

    I had no idea about those attachments - and yes, that potato peeler is wonderful. Thanks for sharing everything Linda.

    I bought glass jadite knobs on Ebay for the cabinet.
    Edit. Oh, I found a clear glass large fire king bowl at Value Village for the pink mixer!

    There is something so beautiful about patina of wood and wire. So gorgeous. Then the whimsy of bunny ears!!! Fantastic.

    Not vintage but here are my clothespins. I don't remember where I found that blue bird pin but I picked it up immediately. "Like a bird on a wire", came to mind. Also, it reminded me of blue bird records.
