This was the perfect find for my soon to be one year old granddaughter. Her parents love "old stuff". Shipment was quick She was very taken with the bell on the nose.

About

A vintage passion

Retro Cookbook began in the mid-90's as website to share the wacky vintage cookbooks from my collection. Way before blogs, I was posting vintage cookbook art and recipes the old fashioned way, with handwritten HTML. ;-) Eventually the site became a blog, and in 2014 I had to get rid of it because constant hacker attacks made it not worth my while. The lame-o's!

In 2009 I opened this Etsy shop to sell extra vintage cookbooks I had, as well as other vintage goods from my personal collection. I had collected a lot of things for photo props, and then at some point would run out of space and decide to sell some items.

In 2013 I closed this shop to take a break after a death in the family, and a move from Colorado to Wisconsin.

Flash forward to 2016... My photo & art studio in Racine, Wisconsin has always had my vintage items displayed and I often would have people asking if I was selling that stuff. After a couple years of saying "no, that stuff is not for sale, how about buying a photo?" I decided, "What the heck, why not sell the vintage stuff too?" So my studio has evolved to be a shop for my art photography, vintage goods, and my woodworking products! (My woodworking can be found here on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/interrobangart )

I now have an antique booth at School Days Antique Mall in Sturtevant, Wisconsin... just west of Racine, and conveniently located between Milwaukee and Chicago.
