Q: Now that the children have children who come to visit, we realize how cramped and inhospitable our old kitchen/breakfast room is. We are thinking about taking down the wall between the dining room and the kitchen, but that's a pretty bold move. Do we really want everyone in the kitchen at once, much as we love the grandchildren?   Where there was a wall, there's now a way cool open kitchen/great room space for entertaining. ... [full story]

The credit card is a relatively recent term; before that they were known as charge plates or coins. These were ... [full story]

Q: I inherited this single-piece electric toaster from my parents. Decorated with a gazelle on the side, the still-working toaster has a shiny chrome metal finish and its original cord.

Q: Our old house is charming, but it would be more so if the previous owner had not "modernized" by removing most of the woodwork. There are no crown mouldings in the living room, for example. Even the mantel had been stripped out. We're slowly putting some detailing back in place, but my husband is a stickler for authenticity and it will take a long time. What should we do in the meantime?   Placed close ... [full story]

As a collecting category, the area is split into two segments: the 19th to early 20th century examples appreciated for their charmingly illustrated box covers, and the more modern games with their bold graphics, prized ...

Q: I am sending a photo of my parents' Singer sewing machine. They purchased it when living in Vermont in the early 1940s. I have had it since the mid-1980s. The cabinet is made of oak, and both the cabinet and the machine are in excellent condition. I still have the instruction booklet, which is dated 1937. Could you please give me an idea of its current value?   A Singer sewing machine, created by Singer ... [full story]

Q: Last year, we had a few trees planted for us and we want to do it again, but this year we are thinking of doing the planting ourselves. What should we do?   A: One of the first things to do before digging any holes in the yard is to call the local utility service that locates your underground wires and pipes. It is usually a free service when you call several days in advance, ... [full story]
