A Collector’s Kitchen Treasures with Kathleen Thompson Hill
Grab your favorite antique kitchen utensil and join us for “What is it? A Collector’s Kitchen Treasures” with Kathleen Thompson Hill!
Hill will tell the secrets of how she started her Kathleen Hill Culinary Collection with gifts she bought for her mother, progressed to her first cracker tin (and 60 more from around the world), her original $3 price limit, and how the collection grew to 3,000 pieces—a true people’s collection of old kitchen tools that last forever. Every utensil has a story.
Please bring your favorite old kitchen utensil to the program and share its story!
A reception with themed refreshments will follow the talk at approximately 11:30am.
