Top 3 Selling Antique/Vintage Kitchen  Hand Tools 

Recently I was given a box of vintage to antique kitchen tools.  I thought I would share what I found to be the top 3 higher selling items.  Now this will stay in the hand tool category not including the larger coffee grinders, we all know they can get very pricey.  These are your more commonly found everyday hand tools that you could easily find at any Estate Sale or yard sale.. Seasoned resellers know but if you are starting or adding to a collection or new to reselling -keep your eyes open a $3-$5 purchase could easily turn over a $50-$75 profit. 

1- Food Chopper- a primitive wood handle steel blade food chopper range from $40-$89 confirmed sales..  watch for blade condition as well as the wood handle should appear to be original not a replacement.





2-Knife Sharpening Steel most with the wood handles inspect steel rod for nicks or breaks and watch for names like Rogers Bros, Pike, Winchester & Foster Bros, having confirmed sales ranging from $20-$50.




3- Egg Beater  every kitchen had one, from a basic metal whisk to a fancy automated gear driven marvel....watch for the rare PD & Co all cast iron coil wire whisk from late 1800s you may pay more for this rare gem but with confirmed sales of $331-$500,  I would not argue..         even your more common vintage egg beaters sell for $20-$40.. it is all about condition. 


so when on your next hunting expedition take another look at those rusty old kitchen tools.   Turning a $3-5 purchase into $40-$90 is a smart investment.

be safe and remember to welcome our teenagers... Don’t tell them they’re too old. They already know that. Let them pretend it just isn’t so.  and there is so many worse things they could have elected to do with their night.   
I am 60 years old and wish I could dress up and go door to door again... You Know What! maybe next year I will but I will "treat" the homeowner with a little something... I like that idea!
