Let’s Have A Vintage Picnic!

By Sablemable

 

It’s 98 degrees Fahrenheit here in southwestern lower Michigan and I don’t know if I’d want to eat outdoors, but, just in case I change my mind, I’ll need a few vintage items to carry along.   Check out my finds from Etsy.com.

I need a picnic basket and here are two that are pretty neat.

 

From seller mysachistylist this green woven basket.

It’s hard to find an immaculate metal picnic basket and here’s one by seller NewLifeVintageRVs in plaid.

I’ll need something to keep everything cold.  These Hamilton Skotch ice cans from seller Patsplace68 will do the trick.

And, I might need a cooler like this one from seller NewLifeVintageRVs.

For the lemonade a  Skotch  picnic jug by seller thewhitepepper.

To keep things warm, here’s a mess-kit type food carrier with a detachable handle if I want to fry something over an open fire.  Seller is VintageAtticCo.

If I don’t want to lug wood or charcoal (and I DON’T), I can get this hardly-been-used Coleman  Picnic Stove by seller thevintagepicker.

Paper plates are okay, but look at these compartment eating trays!

From seller AntiquesStLouis a set of 4 stainless steel trays, just like the ones used in the military mess halls.

But hold on!  I am agog over these Red Wing Pottery compartment trays!  A set of 4 by seller sippiewine.

For the tableware, when I saw these wooden sporks from seller emmylucy, it reminded me of my childhood when you got a ice cream cup with the little wooden spoon.

Whatever dessert I may bring along in my basket, I’ll certainly appreciate a fresh cup of coffee to go along with it.

From SunsetStars, this campfire coffee maker.

Remember what I said about paper plates?  I take it all back with these vintage Maxwell House paper coffee cups by seller nancesnostalgia.

Now, what am I forgetting?  Oh, yeah!  The salt and pepper shakers!  Seller HobartCollectables has a set with snap-on lids.

I’ve got plenty of room in my 1955 Chevy Nomad, so hop in and let’s head for the park!
