The owners of K and M Antiques, Margaret and Kenn Whitmyer, have been buying and selling collectible pottery and glassware since 1973. Like many dealers, we started out as collectors. Depression Glass kitchen items and green Cameo were our passions. As our collection became more massive, it became obvious that we would have to sell some of our finds to help support our habit. Enter K and M Antiques, which began as a small flea market and mail order business. It rapidly grew into a full time enterprise. Our primary business at that point was selling at Depression Glass specialty shows, flea markets and operating a mail order business through publications such as the "Depression Glass Daze." During the late 1980s our business began to change and we found it advantageous to invest some of our time and efforts into some of the larger and more strategically located malls in the Ohio area. We are still located in three of these antique malls today. We invite you to view the photos of our mall booths below and get more information by clicking on "Links and Show Info" in the footer. We have developed e-commerce sites via eBay, Ruby Lane,TIAS, Go Antiques, Cyberattic and Just Glass. We currently have an eBay store and maintain this web site. Our eBay store is called K & M Antiques & Collectibles. We also sell collectibles through eBay auctions using the name junquer9.
A number of years after establishing our business we became interested in helping to educate beginning collectors, and providing price guides for dealers and collectors. As a result we began writing books that have been published through Collector Books. All of our books are currently out of print. However, we are now working toward the production of updated versions in a digital format. Our published works include:
"Fenton Art Glass 1907- 1939"
"Fenton Art Glass Hobnail Pattern"
"Fenton Art Glass Colors 1939-1980"
"Fenton Art Glass Patterns 1939-1980"
"Bedroom and Bathroom Glassware"
"The Collector's Encyclopedia of Hall China"
