Cookie jars from the ‘40s and ‘50s are, surprisingly, all the rage right now. If you have one in the shape of a popular figure (like from a cartoon) you could sell it for $200 or $500, easily. An Uncle Mistletoe Marshall Fields cookie jar from the 1950s sold for as much as $1,200.
It may be time to say goodbye to your favorite countertop decoration, especially if you’re in a pinch and could use a few hundred dollars! But remember, you don’t actually need a Marshall Fields cookie jar to reap the cash, so research what you do have on the internet to find out its actual value.
