Why I love selling vintage cookbooks (one of many reasons)

I recently sold a cookbook published by a church in San Diego, Ca and was delighted to receive this email from the buyer:

Favorite Foods Brooklyn Heights Presbyterian Church San Diego

Favorite Foods: Give Us This Day Our Daily Bread

“I was the organist at Brooklyn Heights Presbyterian Church in the early 1970s, and although I was only there for a year I have many happy vivid memories of that place and its dear people. Many of them had belonged for years and years, so I hope to see some names I know in the cookbook. Looking forward to it!”

Stories like this just make my day – it’s such a thrill to reunite a cookbook with someone who’s got history with it.
