COLLECTING NOSTALGIA: The First Guide to the Valuable Antiques of the 30s and 40s

From ""a veritable deluge of articles"" and ""thousands of magazines and merchandise catalogs of the period"" Mr. Mebane (A Poor Man's Guide to Antique Collecting, 1969) has assembled potentially ""hot"" items which are ""quaint and useful and beautiful."" Maybe a Pullman towel ($1.25) or a Gone With the Wind program ($3.50) or how about something more substantial -- like circus rolling stock or a Dionne Quintuplet cereal bowl. There's no end to this ""fairyland of wonders and marvels"" from the '30's and '40's -- furniture, ceramics, books, glass, toys, autographs, junk. Is there a packrat in your attic? Might it be you -- stumbling over a Soda Fountain dispenser?
