Best Kitchen Kitsch


Ever find yourself wandering dazed through Bed Bath & Beyond, dreaming about how cool and cozy your abode would be if only you owned this cake caddy or that set of butter warmers? If so, do yourself a favor and avoid Hearthbeats. Not only will your heart go all a-flutter at the sight of the selection of antique cooking and serving wares, but should you momentarily pass out from the head-rush of it all and break something on your way down to the floor, you might find yourself paying for a 1930s china tea set you didn't even get to use. One of the best pit stops along Cherokee Street's wonderful Antique Row, Hearthbeats stocks an enviable, cute-as-all-get-out collection of vintage cookie cutters, cordial glasses, brandy decanters, wash pitchers and basins, coffee/tea/flour/sugar canisters and other nostalgic trifles (such as a set of drinking glasses emblazoned with one of Pepsi's old logos: "You got the right one baby, uh-huh"). A sign hanging from the front door reads, "If you want breakfast in bed, sleep in the kitchen." If you want the best kitchen kitsch, go to Hearthbeats.
