THE VINTAGE OVEN THAT'S GONNA BREAK MY HEART
I prayed that this oven would still be in the house when we bought it. The Lord answered and there it was. It's a Magic Chef stove, I think from the 1930s. Similar to this model seen here, but even better, in all her black and white glory.
It pangs me to type these words... but I'm quite certain it''s not going to fit into our kitchen. I mean, technically it could, but then we would have no countertops, and have to close the window, and maybe no sink. Or something like that. I mean, what are countertops, sinks, and windows good for anyway? I really have no idea where I could even put it, anywhere in the house. THIS IS THE SADDEST DAY EVER, I KNOW.
It appears to be in good condition, just needs to be cleaned up, moved, and restored. And when I say moved, I mean... I think it weighs around 500 pounds. So there's that. It's sitting in our house, crying out to me. And I'm crying out to you. What do I do with this beauty?
I don't really even know where to begin. Do you live in New York and want to buy this? Do you know how to restore this glorious thing? Do you know which direction to point me in? I am asking all these questions, with gnashing of teeth, that I can't keep it myself.
Help me help you.
