1. Back during WWII (or maybe it started during the depression years and carried on), when things were in short supply due to the war effort, there was a popular saying: "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without”. These days it's trendy to use the words "repurpose" and "recycle" - same thing, don't you think? We like to think of our sellers are the ultimate repurposers and recyclers! Come visit us at
and see what they have to offer. We're not just for collectors of fine antiques and collectibles - we help give new life to useful and economical items from days gone by.

One of our readers sends this info and pictures about a fan he's researching. Any fan experts out there?
Antique General Electric Brass Oscillating Fan
20” tall – 16” fan blade diameter
The brass plate on the top of the motor housing only gives this insight…
NO. 523674 Volts 110 Cycles 60
I am doing some research for a friend that has this Antique GE Fan and is looking to have me sell it. I would like your help (or direction) in identifying the model and year and the approximate value of the item. If you can (or you know of someone that I can talk to that can) assist me in finding out this information, it would be much appreciated.
Please see the pictures here (and/or in the attachments) to assist with the ID and to note the condition.
The oscillating switch cover plate has obviously been broken in the past and patched in some manner. There is also a modern electrical wire and plug that has been spliced into the fan, replacing the original. The original wire between the base and motor housing remains intact.
Runs powerfully and smoothly, and the oscillating function works just fine, switches all work.
I thank you for any insight or interest you may have....
You can see the images of Richard's fan here:
Need some help identifying a tool or test device. 13.5" total length and 1.5" diameter along the full length with a 5.75" shaped wood handle. Besides the wood handle the rest of the tool has a removable copper/brass tube cover that exposes a brass(?) close ended 1" width fork that has a metal strip attached and a pivoting scale attached to the sided of the fork. Metal strip is ~ 11/16". Scale goes from 100, 135, 150 to 200 and the letter "C" on top. The metal strip shows evidence of flame and soot. Not a single mark, letter or number I can find anywhere on the device.
You can see images of this tool here:

I hope I can use this as tool for thanking everyone for answering my requests for several recipes. I will get them printed out right away and am sure I will treasure each one every time I cook one of the dishes.
Janice B sent in a request for a deviled egg that wasn't "deviled" but on the sweet side. Here are some responses:
I think that if you mash the yolk with Miracle Whip you might achieve what you are looking for.
Let us know!
For that sweet taste in deviled eggs try mashing the yolks with Virginia Brand Vidalia Onion Vinegarette. We get it at Sam's. Another suggestion is to use a sweet Marzetti's dressing.
Sent from Joyce's phone
My guess would be that using Miracle Whip (salad dressing) in addition to or in place of “real” mayonnaise is what accounts for the sweet taste in the filling. Miracle Whip contains both high fructose corn syrup and sugar. Anna B
Sweet Deviled Eggs
6 large eggs
3 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon honey mustard
1 teaspoon vinegar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pinch paprika, for garnish
Place eggs in a saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil, remove from heat, and let
eggs stand in hot water for 15 minutes. Remove eggs from hot water and place in a bowl of
ice water. Peel.
Slice eggs in half lengthwise. Remove yolks and transfer to a bowl; mash with a fork or
pastry blender until yolks resemble powder. Stir mayonnaise, sugar, honey mustard, vinegar,
salt, and pepper into yolks until smooth. Spoon yolk mixture into the egg whites and lightly
sprinkle with paprika. Chill before serving.
9. As with collectibles, people also have very strong feelings about foods from their past. Sometimes these special recipes get lost. This section is to help people who are looking for lost recipes from their past. If you submit a request, please include the geographical region where you tasted the recipe. If you have a vintage recipe request send it to email@example.com and we might just publish it here.
TIAS.com merchants have well over 4,000 cookbooks for sale! You can see them here:

Jerilynn sent in this request:
My grandmother used to make a cake with fruit cocktail (canned I think). It was super moist, and I think we topped it with Cool Whip. I don't know if she used a box mix or a scratch recipe. This was back in the latter part of the 60s. Does anyone have this recipe?
Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help our readers find these recipes!
