Kool-Aid cups and Memories

Last summer while visiting A Vintage Gathering*, I saw this Kool-Aid set for sale and oh man did it bring back memories. I can't remember if we even had the set but that doesn't matter. It brought back memories of mixing the Kool-Aid in the kitchen with my brother helping. It brought back memories of summer time, playing in the yard, laughing with friends. I seem to recall that the cups and pitcher changed color too. Oh, and those commercials of the big Kool-Aid man. Out of all the wonderful vintage treasures at the sale, this......

this set made me stop, remember simple moments in life and smile. This is why I love these sales, vintage and antique shops and such: 
For what they remind us of in the past so we know what to treasure in our present and future. 

*A Vintage Gathering, an outdoor event I attended last year, now is a store in Battle Ground, WA. Check out their Facebook page for more info.


  1. We drank mostly kool-aide as kids since it was about 4 cents a package. Mom would only put 1/2 cup of sugar in it instead of the 1 cup on the directions. It was kind of sour. She saved up enough of the empty packets and got that set for free or maybe with a small amount of money for postage. When Andrea was young, I did at times make kool-aide and I believe that the blue one was her favorite. Maybe berry, too. She used to dunk her potato chips into her drink and said that it tasted really good. I could never figure that one out...LOL.

    1. Dunk her potato chips in her drink.... gross. Of course, french fries and soft serve vanilla ice cream are pretty tasty together! : )

  2. Hi Erika! I'm so glad you found me! What a small world it is. I'm following your blog now too, and I hope to catch up on past posts when Zi get home and I'm not so busy playing with Piper.
