This is one of those things that I pieced together by pure accident. A couple of years ago my next door neighbor passed away. The family had several garage sales to clear out her possessions. At one of those sales, I found the mixing bowl pictured on the mixer stand, and bought it. It is my favorite everyday mixing bowl, especially since I rarely use my Pyrex set that I posted a while back. Then at the same auction where I bought my Heywood-Wakefield bedroom set, I picked up the above mixer, complete with beaters and the original cookbook. The only problem was that the original bowl was missing and it had a cheap plastic bowl in its place. I got home and was looking through the book, and realized that I had the correct bowl for it in my cabinet. I pulled it out, and sure enough, it was marked "Sunbeam" on the bottom. This old mixer is missing a little paint, but it works great!
