Collecting Trivets

What are the most popular types of trivets to collect? There is no one answer. Collections can range from less than a dozen on a wall to trivets in every room of the home. Some collectors focus on one genre such as Antique American, Horseshoe Plaque or Sad Iron (Advertising) Stands. Others have discovered mid-century Reproduction Trivets, still quite affordable but on the verge of becoming antique themselves. Pressing iron collectors search for the most suitable trivets and stands to display with their irons. Many collectors are eclectic, buying whatever appeals to them.

But nothing compares to handling a wide variety of trivets and stands while discussing their merits with others. Join PITCA and you'll be introduced to other collectors who share your passion. Network with other collectors locally, attend a Regional PITCA Gathering, come to an annual PITCA Auction and Convention ... or travel to an International Meeting!
