Several weeks ago I posted about a favorite spoon and some ice cream (here). I talked a little bit about one of my favorite childhood possessions; my Yogi Bear Spoon.
Last week, my friend Lisa and I, were having lunch at one of our new neighborhood haunts; SIX restaurant. We ordered their artichoke pizza and their seasonal Cobb, dressing on the side. The food arrived and I guess I put my head down for some reason or another and when I lifted my head up, there, in the side of balsamic vinaigrette, was a Huckleberry Hound spoon! Just sitting there, waiting for me. I was flabbergasted, confused, speechless, excited. I looked at Lisa and she had this huge grin on her face. I was so touched. I said to her, “you had these spoons, too?” And she responded by saying, “no, dummy…ebay!” She read my blog post and was touched. Now, I am touched.
Ebay, it never would have occurred to me to search ebay for a mate for Yogi Bear. Since then, I have become quite the ebay addict. I am looking for grain seed bags. Other than the local flea markets, ebay is a great resource for stuff like that.
In honor of Lisa, ebay and a little piece of my childhood, I am giving away both a Vintage Huckleberry Hound and Vintage Yogi Bear spoon to one lucky winner. This giveaway is for U.S. addresses, only.
