Well I feel its only right that my first proper blog post is a bread related one! I have just become the proud owner of a pink Wesco bread bin! I have been hunting for the perfect bread bin for years and have got through a couple of so-so ones. At the moment I am using this one pictured, but I find it too awkward to reach across the work top and reach into the deep tin to pull out my loaf so I end up plonking my bread on top of it. I guess I am either just too short or too lazy to use this bread bin!
So the other day I was browsing ebay as you do, when I happened upon a pink Wesco up for auction and promptly made an impulse bid. Which I then started to regret……
After a few days wait with mixed emotions I won my breadboy. I say mixed emotions as after placing my bid I immediately got buyers or rather bidders remorse, and I started to hope that I would be outbid. Me and ebay have a love hate relationship – I never seem to win the stuff I really want. I always lose out by 20p at the last minute! I only manage to win stuff that I bid on without thinking, things that nobody else wants, like broken coffee tables (I will go into that another day!) and other tat which I pay more for *ahem* than its worth! I guess that is why people call it evilbay.
But I own it now and I paid less than a third of the retail price including postage. Maybe I paid too much for it, but I have the perfect bread bin to go in my (eventually) beautiful retro pink kitchen. And buying secondhand is better for the environment. And there is no way I would ever pay £95 for a bread bin not on your nelly! So its win-win I guess!
