Why antique kitchen tool sales boom is bust October 15, 2021 October 15, 2021 admin

The number of antique kitchen equipment sales in Ireland has risen in recent years, despite falling sales of more traditional kitchen tools, according to an Irish Government survey.

The survey found that, from December last year, sales of kitchen appliances in Ireland totalled almost €1.5 billion ($1.8 billion) – up from €900 million ($1,040 million) in 2013.

The increase in sales, the first time since 2009, was mainly due to a surge in demand from people buying appliances with the aim of restoring them to their former glory.

In 2014, the number of sales totalling more than €1 billion rose to almost 7,000 units, up from 4,400 units the previous year.

“We are seeing a steady rise in demand for antique kitchen appliances, especially in the first two months of this year,” said a spokesperson for the Minister for Agriculture and Food, Frances Fitzgerald.

“A significant number of our customers are also seeking to restore old kitchen appliances and so we are continuing to support this industry and encourage the community to help support their local craftsmanship.” “

The Government also said the number in 2014 of craftsmanship and antique appliance sales totalled €1,600 million, up 5.6 per cent on the previous five years.”
