A Kitchen Collectibles Collection You Could Plotz Over

What Would Your Dream Antique Booth Be Filled With? 

What if you could wave a magic wand and instantly be transported to the antique show, booth or shop of your dreams?  What would your fantasy booth have in its collection? I found the creme de la creme booth in late August when I was strolling around The Madison Antique Show in Madison, CT and I spotted a booth with kitchen collectibles.

This was not simple just another booth of kitchenwares....this was the was by far the most exciting booth of vintage kitchenwares from the 30s, 40s, 50s that I have come across in a very long time. I'd do a fourth book just on this collection alone. The kitchenwares were owned by Elaine and Jerry Berman of  "Twentieth Century Limitied". I'm not sure where these folks have been hiding but I have to tell you that they had a collection you would plotz over.

Their  kitchen collectibles were all in tip top shape and arranged beautifully. I sure hope I bump into these treasures again.

Would you like to see me do a fourth kitchen collectibles book? Tell me why so I can make my pitch to a new publisher? (My old publisher Collector Books has retired).

Readers, also tell us about what your dream collection would look like?

  1. I must admit it wasn't the kitchenware that caught my attention in this post, but the term "plotz". Does it stand to reason, if "plotz" means to fall down from extreme excitememnt or abhorance, that a Plotzker is one who does this?

    Oh my! What fun I could have had with this maiden name of mine.
