Here's the way the 1975 kitchen looked - some of us remember, some of us are trying to recreate the 70's through our thrift purchases, whatever, it's fun to look back - all these pictures are from my Eaton's Fall and Winter Catalogue, 1975 - Eaton's was a grand old Canadian department store, sadly, it's no more... I'm linking with Rednesday and Share Your Cup Thursday today. As always, click on a picture for a closer look...
All you had to do was order your warm birch veneer cupboards from the catalogue
I didn't know anybody that had a smooth top stove back then, I didn't even know they made them. I think this would have been a very high class item - it was twice the price of a regular stove. What fun to have a red stove!!
Our first dishwasher was "Coppertone"
Order your refrigerator in white, avocado or harvest gold
No 70's kitchen would be complete without a nice cafe set!
I always wished Mom and Dad would buy a swivel set, I wanted to spin around, we just had one like the upper right.
Vinyl tablecloths in wonderful colors and patterns
You could order this set of dishes for $6 a month
$49.95 for a 40 piece chip and crack resistant English dinnerware set
Blue, amber or green - I think we had some glassware in the green
Cutlery really hasn't changed much...
How about some Spice o' Life or Butterfly Gold ?
Mom had a brown set with mushrooms - she used those for years.....
Look at that apple cannister set..
Blenders were big and bulky..
I just bought my first toaster oven the other day!
If you were busy in the kitchen in 1975, you might have been dancing around the kitchen to Lady Marmalade - it's the only hit song from that year that I could find that was kitchen related. I can honestly say my Mother was not listening to Lady Marmalade!!!
