I am looking for old, dented, rusted enamel plates and bowls. I can get new ones but then I need to hammer it till the enamel chips off.

 

I want to put it in my garden. Anyone that can help me? Pics of what you have will be appreciated. Oh - and by the way - don't charge me more than the store charge me for a new plate!!!:smile1:

Are you interested in two yellow coffee pots which are quite "hammered"? Lids missing? You are welcome to have them for R10.00 for both, plus R35.00 postage.

Same price as the shops?? When it's been 'upscaled', is shabby chic as well as very distressed? Oh, no!!! :wtf:

Okay, mopkop. The coffee pots will be mailed to you on Thursday and via the official channels I will let you have the tracking number! (But please let me know what gets planted in them - MrAerospace insists on knowing this!)

Lily used them to melt candle wax but she has now acquired bigger pots so these were just lying around.

Please do me a favor? Go look for more enamel plates / bowls. I need PLENTY.

 

I actually want to build a boy and girl with the enamel:

Faces: Bowls - needed

Hat: Plates - needed

Pants: Maybe the boys shorts?

Feet: Maybe cut them in half?

The girl is still naked - it don't know what to "dress" her with - maybe a big bowl for a skirt - this is also still needed!!!

I'll keep an eye out here - people are always picking up old enamel out of the veld. But you have to promise to post photo's of your enamel statues!

I'll go and look around the old shops (equivalent to old trading stores) in the "lesser" side of town, moppies, and see what I can find for you. It's raining today but I'll try and do it tomorrow and let you know what I find. (At least they will hopefully not need cleaning by MrAerospace although he did do the two yellow coffee pots cheerfully enough when he knew you wanted them! I get slightly jealous the way he is so fond of you! lol)

 

You have to watch out for Grahamstown's old men, you know!!
