But I am probably the last to know the news. J. Peterman expanded too quickly a few years ago, and then went into bankruptcy in the late days of the last century. Their wonderful catalogue is on-line again, with the funny, quirky stories about each of the items. One of the sections of their website is the One-of-a-Kind pieces, so naturally, that was where I went first.
If you know me, you know I love silverware of all types, so was fascinated to see that they had some interesting sets. These fruit knives from France for about $300. Or this set of 91 pieces for just $4740! In addition to collecting silver, I also collect gloves… I love long gloves that don’t leave my wrists bare and I have gloves in a rainbow of colours, figuring that I will lose a few each winter. But I’d try hard not to lose one of this set. In the one-of-a-kind section, I found this great old cloche. I have a couple of these, which will be making an appearance on my Etsy site shortly. Love this set of French buckets. I’d plant them full of geraniums for the summertime! I am glad to see Peterman back. Take a look at their catalogue, here.
