Book Description

Funky, Fabulous, and Fun to Find…

…is the perfect way to describe the quirky collectibles assembled in Collectibles for the Kitchen, Bath & Beyond¸ a pictorial price guide to household accessories of years past.

Featuring more than a thousand color photographs, Collectibles for the Kitchen, Bath & Beyond takes you back to the days when bright ceramic stringholders kept the kitchen string untangled and fanciful pie birds helped create the perfect crust.

You'll find a pageant of graceful napkin dolls, an array of laundry sprinkles and egg timers, whimsical children's cups, tough-guy razor banks - all the things that add both nostalgic warmth and postmodern pastiche to your home or collection.

The book includes descriptions, up-to-date values, and special "Wannabes" sections to help collectors distinguish these vintage items from reproduction and look-alike imposters.
