I Scored at the Thrift Store –


Eclectically Vintage thrift vintage kitchen collectible

Like Honey Boo Boo’s mother, I hate mayonnaise.

So, in 1930, I would have been the one rebellious housewife who refused to whip up my own mayo in the Air-O-Mixer.

Unlike all the other women who would happily twist and spin until their eggs and oil were whipped into the perfect mayo consistency, I would show my civil disobedience by refusing to take part.

I’d have the last laugh too when they all complained that their wrists ached.

I’d be too busy bending over my wash board and scrubbing my husbands shirts til my hands bled.


Here’s to modern appliances and Hellmann’s.

Leaves us more time to do what’s important like finding cute straw holders for our kitchen counters and …

oh, anything other than making our own mayo!

    What an Awesome, Great find. You done good. I only wish I was able to find something like this.

  2. What a great find! I found two of those Barbicide holders (shaped like your mayo maker) that was new and in the box at a yard sale – I keep my long chocolate dipping tools in one. The ends are delicate and get bent when laid in a drawer and other utensils get put on top. In the other, I keep my straws. Brilliant minds think alike! :)

  3. I love how perfectly those straws fit in there! Very cute. What a find!

  4. How cool! I LOVE mayo but have never made my own.

  5. Love it! I have made my own tarter sauce, but mayo? Nope! Cute for straws :)

  6. Such a cool find, Kelly — how do you do it?
    I’d be rebelling right alongside you — no homemade mayo for me!

  7. That is a cool find and I like mayo.

  8. LOVE it! It is much cuter as a straw holder than a mayo maker! I would have never known what it was?! Life to the full! Melissa

  9. seriously, the perfect straw holder!

  10. I am President of the I Hate Mayo Club. You’re in.


  11. At one point in our married life when I was all about “natural” I was making our own mayo (with a blender thank you). Loving your cute straw holder- xo Diana

  12. What an awesome find, Kelly…and it looks so fun holding straws! I used to make my own mayo in a blender…super easy!

  13. I love it because I used to have one…one of the many things I sold before our move to NC..one of the “regretted” items!….Great, great find Kelly….Have a great weekend!

  14. You always have the best finds and this is one of them!!!


  15. I have never seen one of these before. I like it!

  16. Oh Kelly I am so jealous! What a great find! Very, very neat!

  17. I would have never known what that was! I have only made home made mayo, except I called it Aoli (hee hee) a few times. I agree, I will save my wrists for other chores, like pushing buttons on my computerized washing machine! I didn’t know who Honey Boo was until a few months ago. Some things cease to amaze me. Honey Boo and her mother being in that category.

  18. cool find and love how you repurposed it dear!

  19. Love this. I’ve always wanted to try making my own mayo and this would’ve made it so easy.

  20. Hahaha Love the post! Too cute. And I love your mayo maker find!!
    Debbie :)
