Here's your chance to own some of Martha's antique cookware.
You may try your best to emulate Martha Stewart at every turn. But if your efforts are all in vain, don't worry: Perfection isn't easy as easily attained as America's entertaining tips goddess makes it look. But if you'd like to feel a little bit closer to Stewart, than an upcoming auction from Kaminski Auctions in Beverly, MA may be the opportunity you've been waiting for. Over 400 items—props, furniture, and more—from The Martha Stewart Show are going up for bid starting next month.
For two days, beginning Saturday, May 5 at 10 a.m. ET, plates, glasses, pots and pans, aprons, dozens of vases and planters, cutting boards, and even cookbooks from the Martha Stewart library will be offered up by Kaminski Auctions to lucky bidders in person and online (some at ridiculously low starting bids, like $35 for a whole collection of vintage cookware). Prep tables, dining tables, and chairs, including some signed pieces like a toboggan of all things(!), are also up for grabs. The best part is that a portion of the proceeds are going to benefit the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City, a home for the elderly that also advocates for their access to medical care and changing public perception of aging. A preview of the available items will be held Sunday, April 29 through Friday, May 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. You can browse the entire collection online, as well.
The Martha Stewart Show was a syndicated talk show that aired from 2005 to 2012 (the last two seasons were on the Hallmark Channel) and featured Martha interviewing guests, giving entertaining tips, and, obviously, cooking.
Of course, there are some less risky ways to get your hands on Martha-approved items. You can try subscribing to her wine club (she tastes all the wines herself), get her new line of food and kitchenware at Macy's (including her own pasta sauce), or just head to Michael's where you can stock up on chic party supplies for any kind of celebration.
That's nothing to say for her many TV appearances, her co-hosting gig with Snoop Dogg, and her latest role a the newest Chopped judge (episodes featuring Martha Stewart on the Food Network's culinary competition will begin airing June 5). You might be tempted to say Martha is in too many places, but as far as we're concerned that's just not possible.
