Sabi Saturday is open for a whole week where we share:

  • the vintage/antique items handed down or we “rescue” from garage sales and thrift stores so they don’t end up in a trash bin
  • items we’ve upcycled instead of throwing them away
  • items we’ve repaired in a transformative way to make them more beautiful or cooler than before
  • process or tutorials on how we upcycled or repaired something to make something new, more beautiful, or cooler
  • the main idea is showing how we treasure or reuse or creatively transform things that have some history to them, may be a bit worn but nevertheless are still useful/beautiful and often have character.

For Sabi Saturday I have these to show you.

A vintage 1940s electric egg poacher, and a drip coffee pot.

They are both aluminum (I think) and silver in color. They are old, and have stains and discoloring, though.

The egg poacher has a clear cylinder measuring cup thing on the top of the lid. You then put in however much water into the bottom part of the poacher according to how long a time you want your eggs cooked. When it’s done cooking the water will have evaporated letting the steam cook the eggs in the 3 egg cups.  It is made by Sunbeam and is marked E2.

My mom got this from a yard sale many years ago, and when she was done with it, she let me have it.

The coffee pot, which is a drip kind,came from a yard sale, also. I found several of them in a box, just as the people were closing up their sale. Of course I got them all. You boil water in the bottom part, and the small basket attaches to the top part and holds the coffee grounds. You then pour the boiling water into the top part, set it onto the top, and the water drips through. It is made by Wear-Ever and is marked No. 956.

My family used a coffee pot just the same for as long as I can remember.

Yes, we still do use both of these from time to time. They make excellent eggs, and coffee.

  1. I am so glad you joined in Sabi Saturday. My grandmother used to have a coffee pot like that. Those are great items.

    • Thanks! This challenge is right up my alley, since I have a lot of items I can show that are antique or vintage. I find a lot at yard sales, and each one has some kind of story it could tell. 🙂

  2. I remember those coffee pots! I might have even seen one recently at my parents’ house. Not sure where it went, but if it turns up in my final clearing, I’ll hang on to it.

    • Thanks!
      Yes if you do find it, keep it! It makes great coffee, and I keep thinking if the electricity goes out and our automatic coffeemaker won’t work, we can always still have our coffee using this one. 🙂

  3. Oh, my, goodness – we had one of each of those in our home when I was growing up. My grandparents did too – and you’re right, the best coffee and best eggs around! That’s so fun that you still use them.
