KRISTINE KISKY for The Columbian
“There’s probably one sitting on your kitchen counter. And, if you’re like many people, it holds more than sweet snacks. The vessel may also be a vehicle for recalling fond memories.
“Cookie jars make people smile,” declares Ellen Supnick, co-author of The Wonderful World Of Cookie Jars: A Pictorial Reference and Price Guide.
… “The vintage cookie jars are the most sought after,” including those from the 1940s, 1950s and ’60s, says Supnick.
… The good news is, experts agree now is a good time to get some collectible cookie jars at a sweet price.
Juanita Fox, owner of downtown Vancouver’s Old Glory Antique Mall, says cookie jars aren’t selling like hotcakes.”
