Yo Yo Yo...A Mosaic Holiday for Retro Collectors
Retro funky collectors, this hoiday idea is for you if you like to serve your family and guests holiday snacks in kitschy dishes. I spotted these wonder Mosaic trays and candy dishes at The Collinsville Antiques Company in New Hartford, CT a few weeks ago. If you are asking me whether I bought these tiled treasures...the answer is...I didn't YET...I'm hoping by some miracle they are still there when I retun in a few days. You can however find these type of Retro craft items on eBay, Etsy and in shops selling for generally under $20.00. Making mosaic functional items such as ash trays, candy dishes, trivets bowls etc. was a popular hobby in the 1950s and 1960s. Let me know if you find these treasures.
