I am constantly moving things around in my kitchen, depending on my mood or the season I have different things on display all the time. This can lead to some lovely things ending up in piles while new favourites take their place on my limited shelf space.
I thought this little pile of pots deserved better than to be left in a heap like this...
So they now have a lovely new home thanks to a recent eBay find...
I spotted one of these on a website a good while back and couldn't find one here in Australia for ages, eventually I saw a couple on eBay but they went for a LOT so I decided to spread my wings and have a look overseas. I was very fortunate to be the only bidder on an eBay UK auction (Le Creuset is a lot more common and less ridiculously priced over there) and won this fab Le Creuset chrome pot stand.
It has space for 4 pots/pans, 3 lids and a casserole, perfect!
I have kept my collection of cast iron cookware to reds/oranges, aqua and cream, they just look so gorgeous together.
Now they are within easy reach for regular use instead of hiding away in a dark cupboard :-)
My tip for Aussies looking to find items like this that are rare here? Go directly to the UK, USA and France eBay sites, do your search, if you find what you're looking for contact the seller and ask them if they would be willing to post to Australia. Often the answer is yes, and even taking in postage costs you can end up saving a lot! I bought this for 7 pounds sterling / about $11 plus $20 postage whereas they were selling for over 60 dollars here plus postage :-)
