Hey everyone,

Have I got a podcast for you!

Well: it’s for you if you’re, like me, OBSESSED with collecting vintage Pyrex and bowls and plates and other kitchen doodads.

My guest is a purveyor of all such things: Nicole Miller, who runs @Pyrexnplants on Instagram and has her own Etsy shop.


Our conversation covers everything from how she got into all this in the first place, whether or not she’s a hoarder, how her family feels about her collecting, what she looks for when she goes to estate sales, what it’s actually like at an estate sale when someone just died, and — most dangerous for me — what to actually search for when you’re looking for vintage kitchen goodies.

You can listen above or anywhere you listen to podcasts.

And be sure to become a paid subscriber so you get my Ten Bonus Questions with Nicole tomorrow in your inbox, plus my Thursday newsletter.

Happy shopping/listening!
