Today I found this set (sorry for the picture but I snapped it with my phone). It's a MINT West Bend aluminum drink set -- red pitcher (with a white plastic handle -- possibly bakelite, but I haven't tested it yet) and eight tumblers. There isn't a single dent and barely a scratch on the entire set! The colors are so bright -- very jewel-tone. You can't really see the great detail on the pitcher, but it has scored bands around the bottom and a very cool ice lip.

I don't think I can bring myself to sell them. At least, not yet. I might foster the set for the summer and see if I'm able to part with it in the fall.
I also found this in the higher priced 'collectibles' area: It's a Bauer Moderne casserole & serving rack. You can't tell so much from this picture, but it's a gorgeous shade of mid-century pink and I love the tripod legs of the rack. I'll be able to sell this one, though!
