A Note from Your Moderator, Author Barbara E.Mauzy

Nifty and neat, pot holders are basically a late 1940s – mid 1950s phenomena. When we consider the brevity of their production, by hand no less, it’s wonderful that so many gay and gifty pot holders have survived for us to covet and collect. I was a collector of pot holders before writing Gay and Gifty Pot Holders, and my love for these unique treasures is shown on every page and in my house where I display them, stack them, and even box away piles of them. Join the fun as we admire what others have created and we now protect and cherish..

A couple of tight woven crochet potholders in spring colors. These potholders are available for sale at the Vintage Touch ONLINE store at:  http://deannamoyers.ecrater.com/p/12549389/2-vtg-crochet-potholders...

Early braided mats were used for potholders as well as hot pads for the table.  These charming pieces are also popular for use in doll houses as rugs.  Here is a nice yellow round one that is currently for sale at the Vintage Touch ONLINE store at: http://deannamoyers.ecrater.com/p/10965862/tight-woven-braided-mat-...

I love the many varieties of vintage crochet potholders.  I've added some to the Vintage Touch store today.  Please check out the potholder aisle at: http://deannamoyers.ecrater.com/c/1336725/potholders

Below is one such example and you can't beat the prices:
