I will be bringing a wonderful collection of vintage cookbooks and cooking pamphlets to the Brooklyn Flea in Fort Greene today. My husbands's grandmother, collected and preserved hundreds of these little gems.
Most of them date from the 1930s to the 1950s. Many are still in their original mailing envelopes. (Often, you would have to write to the various food companies, or send in a coupon, and they would send you the cookbook or pamphlet in the mail.)
The graphics are so fantastic on these. The recipes and serving ideas are pretty charming too.
I will have them modestly priced from $2 to $10 today at the flea. Come by and browse.
