Old Metal 1950s Utility Cart Great For Kitchens And Arts Studios

 Vintage Metal Utility Carts Practical For Kitchens and Art Studios


Once upon a time, an old metal 1950s  Utility cart might be seen as too "grandma-ish" for the hip set. But now these retro treasures are finding their back into small apartments in New York City, dorm rooms and even art studios. Once selling for under $15.00 dollars or available through stamp catalogs back in the day, these practical carts are now easy to find for about $25.00-65.00 depending on where you live and in what condition they are found. I spotted this wonderful green cart at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford. It is in perfect condition and has a yellow one sitting right next to it. I bought the cream colored one a couple of months ago from the same dealer.

  1. Mine is avocado green with chrome & I use it in the pantry to keep the microwave & baking supplies on. It was my Grampaw's & I have many memories of his house whenever I look at it.

  4. I have one of these in mustard. But the top has handles and lifts off to be used as a tray.
