Time isn't all the GE Dishwasher saves! Look at my hands!

Vintage ad copy is always good for a laugh. It's not making a comeback any time soon, but some of the old-style appliances are—at least in reproductions. There's also a thriving market for refurbished vintage models. You'll feel like a queen with either style! Look at your hands!

Fridge
The Big Chill Fridge is available in eight colors and holds plenty of food for Beaver, Wally, and all their friends. It's $2500 ($150 extra for an icemaker). Available online or at Krup's Kitchen & Bath, 11 W. 18th [5th/6th] 212.243.5787.

Amps

Vintage Appliances
For the real things (restored), as well as reproductions, Antique Appliances is the place to go.
