Episode 407 - The Nik Nak
Butter Knives
Croissants anyone?
A Sunday antique market is a perfect place to pick up reasonably priced items for entertaining, gifts, and otherwise. Joined by my friend Joan Sternthal, antique collector, we took a trip to our local market and began the fun activity of antique hunting. As we explored the different booths, Joan shared her thoughts with me on the kinds of fabulous finds, which are featured at a weekly flea market.

One thing we could not pass by without picking up and admiring was a knife stand. With a yellow-handled collection of knives in it, this stand was adorable. The tiny knives would be perfect for buttering a croissant, carving little plums, or even peeling your own grapes - which you might be inspired to do if you owned one of these!

Part of collecting is keeping your eye open for details. Otherwise you might overlook a perfectly quaint piece of history such as this knife stand.
