Collecting, cleaning, displaying, researching, and appreciating TRIVETS and related go-withs!

About me

Welcome, triveteers! I’m a fellow collector who’s been collecting and researching trivets and other laundry day memorabilia since the 1980s. I was fortunate to partner with Collector Books who published my two books: “The A-Z Guide To Collecting Trivets (2004) and “The Expanded A-Z Guide To Collecting Trivets” (2010).

After raising two children while juggling a career as a registered nurse, I joined my husband Ed in retirement in 2015. We’re both enjoying the luxury of time to become immersed in our hobbies and reflect on our lives so far. Life is good!

And yes, I do occasionally list trivets, irons and other laundry day items on eBay.  Items for Sale by tornado-lynn.

PS: You’re invited to follow Ed’s blog Central Florida Photo Ops where he shares digital photography techniques used to capture the beauty and essence of natural Florida.

And that photo above? It won Ed and I an all-expenses paid trip to the 2004 eBay Convention in New Orleans. My essay and image were selected for the Antiques division; four other collectors were selected in other areas. FedEx shipped 70 pieces from each of our collections to Louisiana where there were on display within glass cabinets in the Morial Convention Center. It was a wonderful week!
