There’s nothing like the old fashioned metal ice cube trays.
The new, cheap plastic ones are awful. The ice cubes don’t pop out easily, and the plastic breaks. I haven’t found any of the plastic ones that are worth the money I’ve paid for them. So for quite some time now, I’ve been telling myself that the first chance I got, I would go on a search for the kind I remember from years ago.
A couple of weeks ago, I was at a garage sale with friends when … holy cow! METAL ICE CUBE TRAYS!
Not just one, or two.. but FIVE of them! Scooping them up, I told my friends that I didn’t care how much they cost, they were MINE!
Guess the guy running the garage sale overheard me because he charged me $10.00… and frankly, my dear… I didn’t give a damn. Those metal ice cube trays with the handle that pops up and loosens the cubes, those great big giant ice cubes, the size they’re meant to be… they were mine.
You can have your plastic trays. I’ll take the old-fashioned kind any day.

Message re Our Products:
Most of the items we offer are vintage, antique or simply pre-owned. Therefore, reasonable wear & tear is to be expected, and our items are sold as seen and as described in the photos and/or in person.
We try to describe any damage, nicks, blemishes or other problems of which we are aware in any and all of our listings, and always include plenty of clear photographs which are integral to the description, so please review them closely.
Also, please be aware that vintage and antique items are unlikely to be in factory condition, so if you aren’t used to buying antique or vintage items – and are in fact looking for a pristine, unused item – a new reproduction may be better suited for you.
We ordinarily do not “clean up” items because such cleaning may detract from their value.
We are specific and honest in our descriptions because we want happy buyers who will return and/or refer their friends!
