I Scored at the Thrift Store –

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!

  1. 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. 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

  4. 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.
