Vintage Recipe Box 155

Vintage Recipe Box 155 is a metal recipe box with two cross-stitch birds on the front.

Based on the information we found inside, we THINK the box originated from Alabama with ties to Virginia and Georgia.

The recipes are not too old with the oldest ones we have found so far are dated starting in the early 2000s.

Vintage Kitchen Tools and Dishes

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware. 

On the weekends I can often be found in a thrift store poking through the shelves to find vintage treasures to use as props for our photography for the site.

Vintage Cookbooks

Every once and a while you can find a good cookbook with Vintage Recipes on Amazon. I don’t have any recommendations as I haven’t bought any as I prefer the handwritten recipes that you see on our site.

You can always find treasures on sites that sell used items such as Vintage Cookbooks on eBay and Vintage Cookbooks on Etsy
