Chocolate Molds

I couldn't believe my luck when I turned the corner at the Ann Arbor Antiques Market last year and saw this.

It was the Dad's Follies booth - purveyors of antique ice cream and metal chocolate molds. Their collection has thousands of chocolate molds - rows and rows of Santas arranged by size. Visually, it is spectacular.

I had read about their company many times in magazines as they are considered THE source for antique chocolate molds. I never dreamed that I would be able to see their collection myself, but there I stood in awe.

Now, antique chocolate molds are an investment. A 2-sided mold was out of my reach, but half a rabbit (shown here) is pretty much worthless if you are a collector...but priceless if you are me. I am going to frame him on blue velvet and love him forever.

Hi Anne,
Framing the very cute bunny mold is a super idea. You always have the fun, simple creative ideas to share.
Thank you!
