News-Antique.com - Dec 01,2010 - It is possible to be both hip and thrifty this holiday season, according to Kitschy Collector C. Dianne Zweig who is the author of Hot Kitchen and Home Collectibles of the 30s, 40s, 50s just released in a NEW second edition by Collectorbooks.com. Zweig owns “Kitsch n Stuff”, a retro shop with personality, specializing in vintage kitchen and house-wares, located at The Collinsville Antiques Company of New Hartford, Connecticut.
Just in time for the holidays, Kitsch n Stuff is now packed with fresh finds and holiday themed displays including, vintage tablecloths, table top , bowls, kitchen canisters, glassware, serving pieces, advertising tins, spice tins, kitchen utensils, wall décor, whimsical kitchen and home accessories and so much more.
When the kitschy Collector is not out shopping for kitchen collectibles or releasing books, she is back at her desk serving as Editor-In-Chief of Iantiqueonline.com , the largest social network on antiques, collectibles and art with 6000 members and 150 collectors groups.
Zweig’s advice for a thrifty nifty holiday season is to buy attractive and nostalgic gifts which were once loved by someone else. Re-gifting is totally cool, especially for socially conscious baby boomers who want to celebrate a greener but retro groovy holiday.
