Vintage Chef Kitchen Collectibles ~ My Display Video



I recently pulled together most of my Chef collectibles that have been in my kitchen for years. I'm displaying the collection at the Lima Public Library. [Note: Originally posted in 2010]

Below is a video of the display cases in the front entry of the Lima Public Library. This collection will be on display until the 2nd week of March 2010. Come have a look for yourself!

You'll see some great vintage CHEF's from my kitchen. There are figural cookie jars, salt and pepper shakers, advertising tins and labels, as well as a fun selection of hard plastic jello-molds, spoonrests and notepad holders. Detailed pix are below the video.



Here's a link to the CHEF DISPLAY video just in case the above player didn't work.

Many of these items will be featured in an upcoming book.
