Etsy Sale, Poly Perk

Shop: ProperlyVintaged
Quantity: 1
Price: $14.99 USD

This and several other Avocado Green pieces I received in an auction box lot of vintage housewares I paid $2 for the lot.

However I was almost arrested for "collusion" because a bidder would not go against me... 


  1. Carmen,
    What is "collusion", I'm curious about this? I had a Poly Perc that I used for years until it just died only mine was beige. That pot made great coffee! I still use a percolator but the brand is Farberware now!

  2. Crystal,
    col·lu·sion Noun:Secret or illegal cooperation or conspiracy, esp. in order to cheat or deceive others.

    I exaggerate for effect but the auctioneer made mention of me and the other person colluding, because the other person stopped bidding since he is my friend.

  3. Oh, well...what a mean thing to imply...
