If it's not in the Yellow Pages. then it can probably be found in Terry Trucco's Where to Find It. Fully updated, this collection from Terry Trucco's popular New York Times column shows you how to locate hard to find, but often invaluable, goods and services throughout the country. The author has uncovered superbly skilled craftspeople who can repair, resuscitate or replace anything, from a broken zipper on a sleeping bag to an antique teapot's shattered spout. You'll also find out how to contact highly creative artists who can solve the most pressing - and most unusual - of household problems. Organized alphabetically by subject, this book provides all the information you need if you want to find someone who can: build a custom-made bed for your dog; regrind a damaged binocular lens; clean, restore and repair an antique clock, an heirloom quilt or a cherished piece of jewelry; paint a stunning ceiling or make an ordinary wood floor look like marble; locate discontinued china, flatware or glass patterns; and sharpen a knife, alter a wedding dress or childproof a home. In an era of mass production and diminishing craftsmanship, it's getting harder to find those who deal in off-the-beaten-track goods and services, Terry Trucco's Where to Find It tells you where they are and how to contact them. Informative, fascinating and fun, it's the essential guide to the people and businesses who make, fix and sell just about everything.
Being “green” is not a new idea. Our ancestors recycled and reused precious pieces of fabrics, broken dishes and glass, iron, tin and more. Textiles often were woven on a loom at home until the mid-1850s. For most families there was no nearby store with a replacement, and no way to order something to be delivered until Victorian times. The Sears, Roebuck &Co. catalog (1894-present) was not the first, but it was the most famous catalog, and others followed. Although the catalog offered quilts and pictures, someone, probably a talented housewife, stitched a decorative panel of the silk bands that came on cigars. The bands were pieced together, then fringe was added. Sample pieces of woolen cloth, sometimes with the paper label still attached, cotton fabric from flour sacks, and pieces of old dresses were recycled into larger pieced and patchwork quilts. Because the cigar bands are very small, they were not often reused. But today’s collectors of advertising, cigar-related items and quilts would want this unusual piece. It was made in the mid- to late-19th century. And although it only was a 23-inch, square-mounted in a 32-inch metal frame, it sold at a March Brunk auction in Asheville, N. C. , for $1,200. Q: I have a 5½-inch Hummel pitcher in the shape of a monk who happens to have crossed eyes. A: Germany’s Goebel Porcelain Factory introduced the popular Friar Tuck series in the early 1950s. Friar Tuck was the roly-poly monk who kept Robin Hood and his Merry Men on the straight and narrow. About 125 everyday table items were made, including sugars and creamers, salt and pepper shakers, condiment sets, toothpick holders, mugs and pitchers. Your pitcher is one of the No. 141 line of four pitchers that were made in graduated sizes from 2½ to 8 inches. Older models of the No. 141 pitchers were made, intentionally, with crossed eyes. While they are rarer than pitchers with regular eyes, the rarity is minimal for collectors and they sell for only a few dollars more. Your pitchers are worth about $25 to $30 each. Friar Tuck pieces should not be confused with Hummel figurines, also made by Goebel, because they are not based on drawings by Sister M. I. Hummel even though they have a similar endearing look. Goebel discontinued the Friar Tuck line in 1988. Q: I have a coffee or teapot, creamer and sugar set that I think is made of pewter. The pieces are marked on the bottom “Jennings Bros. , Bridgeport, Co. , 1890” and “876. ” Are they of any significant value. The company made metal objects in pewter, silver plate, gold plate, and with brass or bronzed finish. The number “876” probably is a catalog or factory number. When the company closed in 1953, the molds were bought by another company that made cheaper replicas. Value: About $100 to $150. Q: When my mother married in 1952, two aunts bought her a set of Fiesta dinnerware. It had four place settings, each in a different pastel color. How much is the set worth. A: The colorful Fiesta dinnerware was introduced in 1936 by Homer Laughlin China Co. of Newell, W. Va. Original Fiesta colors were blue (cobalt), red, light green, ivory and yellow. Turquoise followed in 1937. After World War II, decorating tastes changed from bright to more subdued colors. In 1951, the company discontinued the original blue, light green and ivory, continued to use turquoise and yellow, and added softer colors, chartreuse, gray, rose and forest green. They are called Fiesta’s “fifties colors” and were used until 1959. The Fiesta line was retired in 1972, but Homer Laughlin Co. started making the dishes again in 1986 in new colors, black, white, apricot and cobalt blue. Vintage Fiestaware of the 1930s to ’50s is more valuable than pieces made since 1986. There are auctions and websites that specialize in Fiestaware — even a Facebook page — where you can learn more about the age and value of your Fiesta. The carton adds value.
