Liking My Retro Junk To Be Original
Home Goods just opened a new store in my area and like all loyal bargain shoppers, I had to make a survey visit to see just what's new in discounted home decor and kitchenwares. A very colorful ceramic dish display caught my attention as I strolled in the front door of our new Home Goods store. My first thought was, "my it looks so Fiesta-ish", as in vintage Fiestaware. The colors were so vintage, so retro, so me. BUT I draw the line on what I will buy NEW. I might buy a placemat or pillow in Home Goods. But when it comes to my kitchen, the kitschy collector has to have the real McCoy or Fiesta is this case. What can I say, I like my Retro junk..authentic!
