Collecting Vintage Cookbooks

One of the first things I look for when going to estate sales, auctions and garage sales is cookbooks. Cook books to resell is fun and can be profitable.  Just this week I sold a copy of Betty Crocker's Pie shape cookbook on eBay for $19.49 plus shipping costs. It was a 5 ring binder published in 1972 and was in pretty good shape for its age.

Some other fun cook books to search for are old ones that are instructions for vintage kitchen appliances. Recently I found one for a Dormeyer Electric Mixer. I had it for sale on the Internet and sure enough a buyer came along and bought it for $15.00 plus shipping. She had just recently found the same mixer at a garage sale and was so happy to find the one I was offering for sale.  My little instruction book is now sitting near her vintage mixer.

Thanks for stopping by.. hope that you stop by again to see what I have found or sold on the Internet or at the antique store. Grace
