3) Bread Boxes

Those neat old bread boxes today can fetch a pretty penny! The very large bread box below sold for $265 while other smaller and less flashy models can go for $50-100!

2) Roseite Dishes

This pale pink version of jadeite rivals any of the other colors with its ethereal rose glow. This rare Fire King color was produced in the 1950s after Mamie Pink and the pink kitchens of the era had firmly entrenched pink as a ladies’ color. The teacup below recently sold for $972.00!
