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.

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.
