Kitschy Beaded And Sequin Toucan Spotted At Collector Galleries Antiques And Art, Northampton, Mass

Collecting Kitschy Beaded And Sequin Toucans: But Is It Fruit?

Kitschy sequin fruit and novelty items are actually popular once again as hipsters and others are bringing the vintage cool look back into their apartments and homes. I know many of us have seen the usual fruit in a bowl kitsch, but this was a first for me when I spotted a beaded and sequin Toucan. I'm calling it a Toucan cause  it sure looks like a Toucan. 

If you really want to see a fabulous collection on kitschy crafts of sequin and beaded fruit, check out Mitzi Miscellany .

These photos were taken at Collector Galleries on Bridge Street in Northampton, Mass.
