Vintage Kitchen Tools, Dishes, and Cookbooks

I love vintage dishes and kitchenware and 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. Click here to view Vintage Kitchenware on Etsy.

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

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.

There's a mistake in the typed recipe instructions. It should say "Take from stove," not "Take from above."

When my mom made Boston Cream she put cherries and Brazil nuts in it. I have replicated the recipe in a 21st century recipe using butterscotch chips and sweetened condensed milk 3 minute fudge in the microwave adding in candied cherries and chopped Brazil nuts putting it in an 8x8 pan and chilling until you can cut it I to squares. It really is delicious
