    Hello!

    I live for your kool kitsch posts! Absolutely wonderful! Very excited about the 1st poodle towel – i saw a circle skirt ages ago with the same material that is ridiculously lovely -but tragically far too small for me – wonderful to see this pattern on another piece of fabric!

    I was wondering if you could help me please. You linked to a beautiful set of red and gold Libbey 50s christmas reindeer glasses a couple of times over the holiday season. I couldn’t afford to bid on them at the time, but now i can’t find any no matter how hard i look online. I was wondering if you used any particular search term to find them?

    Thanks so much! – Selina

      Hi Selina! It really makes my day to know you like the Kool Kitsch posts so much! 🙂 Thanks so much!!!

      Oooohhhh, I know what you mean about vintage clothes – it seems like every time I fall in love with something it is also far, far to small for me as well. That poodle skirt sounds wonderful though!

      The reindeer glasses…….You know, I honestly cannot remember exactly 100% how I found them. Sometimes I find stuff for the Kitsch posts in really random ways. I will definitely look for you and if I see any I can post them up here. But in the meantime I’d say to just search under ‘Libbey’ and ‘reindeer’ and see what comes up. You could also try ‘Libby’ too, as I have seen it misspelled a lot too. I know what you mean though, I have looked for those exact same glasses recently too and have seen nothing. They will pop up eventually though! Let me know if you find any!!!

        Thanks so much Sara – it hadn’t even occurred to me to do misspelled search terms – thanks so much for the great tip! I’ll definitely let you know if i find any!

        You definitely have a skill for finding amazing stuff – i always find myself cooing excitedly over every item -and your posts have really educated me. -I wouldn’t know about half of this stuff if it wasn’t for your posts. Looking forward to the next one! 😀

          *Fingers Crossed* that you are able to find some reindeer glasses VERY, VERY soon Selina!

          And gosh, really, thanks so much for your kind words. It really does mean a lot to me that you enjoy these posts so much as they are pretty time consuming to put together…..mostly in actually finding the stuff to post about on eBay! Anyway, I really appreciate the compliment, that was very kind of you to say! 🙂

        I agree! That children’s set is awesome! I JUST saw one of these while I was out, except someone had PAINTED the top and jacked up all the chairs. Boo! It is nice to see an original one.

    Not BBQ time yet?! Even here in central Ohio we grill up dinners—Dad has always been a winter griller, too, despite being up in Michigan. It’s never the wrong time of year for some delicious flame-cooked food. 😉

    Also, that poodle ashtray is unbelievable. To say nothing of possibly dangerous!

    • Sara In AZ Reply

      January 26, 2013 at 4:53 pm

      Jen! YAY!!!! For winter grilling!!!! And no, it’s never the wrong time of year for flame cooked food! YUM!!! 🙂

      I cannot even imagine someone leaving their lit cigarette in the poodle ashtray – it seems like it would just roll right on out. Eek!!!

    Like Selina, I also look forward to what you have found for us to drool over on Ebay 🙂
    I sometimes find reindeer items by searching the word “gazelle” or “antelope”. It’s worth a try.

    • Sara In AZ Reply

      January 28, 2013 at 2:01 am

      Oh gosh, thanks so much Sherree….really, such a super kind thing to say! 🙂

      And great tip for the search terms too, I had never even thought of that!

    Also the word “stag” may bring up a few things when searching for reindeer items 🙂
