Metropolitan Market's annual Housewares sale (July 18‑21) is coming up very soon. This means my wallet will be (happily) drained yet again, as I fill up my cart with new tools, serving pieces and probably a new cookbook or two.
Anyone who knows me knows how much I love Metropolitan Market. I am a foodie and I love to entertain, so "Met Market" (or "M's" as my kids like to call it) is my go-to spot for fine ingredients and delicious culinary treats like gourmet cheeses, artisanal breads, the freshest produce and my favorite racy French wines. Their housewares department is a great resource to find every kitchen tool you need to cook dinner party food in a weeknight time frame, every darling dish that the designer hostess desires, and a completely crave-able collection of cookbooks, linens, and kitchen accessories.
I chose a few of my favorite summer entertaining items* from my local Proctor store to share with you.
Le Crueset makes these sturdy juicers, perfect for crafting ice cold lemonade or patio cocktails that call for a squeeze of lime. We've recently been on a kick crafting basil mojitos, so this juicer would certainly come in handy...
Last year some friends made salted caramel ice cream in this Cuisinart ice cream maker. It was HEAVENLY. We threw our manners out the window and sat around the kitchen island together with our spoons and devoured it right from the can. This ice cream maker crafts perfectly smooth texture and amazing taste.
If you want to actually serve your guests a few scoops, this ice cream scoop would be just what you need. Perfectly weighted and just the right scoop size!
Spork Chops. Need I say more?
Loved this sugar and creamer set. I want this for when my Brooklyn friends come to town next to enjoy a proper cup of Northwest coffee.
This adorable etched measuring spoon set would make such a great hostess gift! If it's someone else's turn to cook, maybe spice up their kitchen a bit with some fun and sweet beechwood measuring spoons.
I absolutely love these retro dishes and glasses! Would look fabulous set at my vintage yellow formica table...
Tomorrow is the start of the Housewares Sale, so be sure to get to your local Metropolitan Market because that means all of these wonderful items are up to 70% off through July 21st!
*Just so you know, Metropolitan Market does not allow photography in their stores (ahem, or so I discovered) but the management at the Proctor location were gracious enough to let me take a few photos for this blog post after we discussed what was going on. :) Thanks Proctor Met Market!
