Buying Vintage Enamel Cookware, Bakeware, Ovenware And Roasting Pans

Where To Find A Huge Collection Of Vintage Enamel Ovenware, Cookware, Bakeware, Roasting Pans

The Flea Market At The Crossing, Plainville, Connecticut is a great place to find old kitchen-wares, especially Enamel cookware, ovenware and roasting pans.

You will find two floors of dealers at The Flea Market at The Crossing. On the second floor towards the back is a Bob who has the booth with a HUGE selection of housewares, pots and pans, glassware and kitchen collectibles galore. Truthfully I have never seen so many pots and pans in one location.

Where Does Bob Find All These Vintage Pots And Pans ?

I'm not sure where Bob is doing his house calls or his picking, but he sure does run into a lot of sellers who must of done a fair amount of cooking back in the day. Now if The kitschy Collector is being perfectly honest with my readers, I have to tell you that while Bob has got the best collection around.... don't expect to be shopping at The Five & Dime. Bob's booth is competitive with the other Antique shops in the area. (Code for "he ain't cheap").

This time of year, many folks are getting ready to cook holiday meals. Bob has a great selection of vintage Roasting pans. These are the heavy enamel ones that you just can't find anymore.

You will find an entire section in my book Hot Kitchen And Home Collectibles of the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s about Porcelain Enamelware covering the history of Enamelware, photos of collectibles and vintage advertising on Enamelware.

The Flea Market is housed in a building owned by Matt and Lydia of H & B Woodworking. The Market opened in 1999 and is open every weekend from 9:00-3:00
