Good things almost always seem to come in multiples, just like this vintage West Bend ceramic bean crock.
I haven't made as many thrift shop stops as usual lately. A hectic schedule and the mother of all colds have kept me away, but when I do get out I've been on a crazy West Bend streak. My last three trips have turned up two of these crocks as well as another penguin hot/cold. All came from different shops and on different days. How strange is that?
I really like the graphic design and the flecked cream glaze, though I can't figure out what the fork and measuring cup motif have to do with beans. Multiple listings have this same piece paired with a set of mini-crocks and an electric warmer, so I guess it must be.
That isn't all that came home either. I snagged that last crock on my way to meet someone selling a certain very comfy something that I'll be sharing soon, so stay tuned.
