I have acquired my own personal shopper for reclaimed crafts goods, for which I am so grateful! You'll remember her as the scorer of the original inspiration for reclaimed crafts: chippy wooden balusters at the curb of an old farmhouse by the Connecticut River. She's been a huge supporter ever since, and besides religiously hitting the Salvation Army on half-price Wednesdays for us, she recently took a trip to her dad's basement, and oh my, what she found. Hasko Haskelite trays from the 1950's! Can you think of a better way to display recipes and drawings from the 1958 Good Housekeeping Cookbook series? No, you cannot. I had such a good time making these!
