I currently have 16 vintage cookbooks listed in my ebay store. They fly in and out of there on a regular basis and they are not hard to find at estate sales, thrift stores, and yard sales. They are very popular — I collect them myself!

The classics are some of the best! The red one on the top is the 1975 version and this one is the 1955 version of Good Housekeeping. Not in the best of shape, but still some great recipes!

The spine is missing on this one but the binding is still intact. The “modern family” is from 1959. No microwave recipes!

This one from McCall’s is probably in the worst condition of all of the ones I have but it’s still intact! From 1973 and over 780 pages.

Last time I had a copy of this one, it was bought by a theatre group for their 60’s play! Nice graphics on the front.

I had a copy of “The Joy of Cooking” from an estate auction that I sold in December. Then I found another copy at the Goodwill store in January and sold that one in 2 days. Hope I find another one soon!

This regional one is even signed by the author, Peter Hunt, who is a famous artist.

Another classic! This one is from 1964. You can find them in various years and editions. I usually list my cookbooks from 9.99 to about 15.00, depending on the condition. Maybe the great price is my secret! You can find me at everythingvintagesteph.com
