Lehman's Haul

One of the reasons I drove all the way to Lehman's was to pick out a sauerkraut crock.  It seems that I have a sauerkraut problem. Everywhere I go I buy fresh sauerkraut and my refrigerator is loaded with the stuff.  I figure if I make my own, I can save some money.  I bought this 5L crock and now I am afraid I should have bought a larger one.  I must say, shopping at Lehman's is such a wonderful experience that it becomes a bit overwhelming.  I had shopping anxiety which is really rare for me.  I should have figured out the size I wanted before I set foot in the place.

* I just noticed that Lehman's has 86 hours of free shipping in case you want to buy something. 15JBDAY is the code.

 I bought a case of these tulip glass canning jars.  Even if you can't visit this place, google them and sign up for their catalog.  They have everything you could possibly want for canning.  My husband sat and read the catalog cover to cover when I came home.  It's a fun read!

 This soap is one of their best sellers. It's a bit stinky when you smell the bar but not when you shower with it. Customers swear by this stuff.

 I'll try anything these days to clean Teddy.

 And the famous Fels-Naptha.  We always had a bar of this on the back of our stationary tub when I was a kid. As I was writing this I wondered where the name came from so I looked it up.  This was originally made by Fels & Co. in 1893.  It was the first soap to include naptha (who knew?) which is a flammable liquid hydrocarbon mixture.  Doesn't sound too healthy but it also mentions that it was used to treat poison ivy.  So, I guess my brother knew what he was doing when he used this way back then.

 I bought some wonderful flour sack towels.

They have quite the candy selection and I picked up some of these old time candy bars.                                           
 I got a bunch of these nicely shaped jars in different sizes.  This concludes my Lehman's purchases, I was so overwhelmed that I couldn't figure out exactly what I wanted.  I need to go back at some point and slow myself down

 I did, however, hit the Fiesta Ware outlet while I was there.  I love their seconds store.  I bought these oval bowls.  Notice the color?  Pumpkin!!!  At least that is what I call it.

 Some small prep bowls in PUMPKIN.

 And they had these (new to me) work bowls with stripes around the sides.

I got a bit carried away but won't these be perfect dough bowls.  And they are, after all,  PUMPKIN! And Halloween is only 192 days away.
