I SO wish that sellers on eBay would sometimes take the time to get better pictures of the items they are selling…..this is a SUPER adorable pink hamper/chest and the only wide picture of it is from the back. ugh. So, picture the front without the black bar down the middle. The pattern on this pink vinyl is really great too! Check  out this Vintage Pink 1950s Vinyl Pearl Wick Clothes Hamper Chest from seller hostesscb.

This vintage owl wall thermometer has got to be the cutest thing ever! Check out this Vintage Retro Owl Souvenir Thermometer Wall Plaque from seller fromus2u.


The cloth is actually a newer reproduction type of barkcloth made in a retro boomerang pattern. I can personally vouch for the weight of this cloth because I have some in a different color that I picked up a long time back  – it is very similar to what a traditional barkcloth would be. It’s really cool fabric, and with 7 yards you have a lot to play with! Check out this Vintage Look Big Kahuna Barkcloth Type Fabric in Beatnik Pattern from seller fergiebar3919.


Lastly, in honor of Easter tomorrow I could not let this kitsch post pass without at least one rabbit in the mix. I will warn you now that for some crazy reason this particular type of vintage rabbit commands a VERY high price on eBay…so don’t keel over when you see the price they are asking! This vintage Gund rabbit happens to be mint with in the original box too…..amazing and insanely adorable…..right down to her little chick in the basket!!! Check out this Vintage 1950s Gund Sister Bunny Rubber Face Rabbit Mint in Original Box from seller firstcraftsman.


Have a great weekend and a great Easter y’all!

      It was super awesome wasn’t it Cindy…..but wow…..$355! That is a pretty high price – but I guess it was mint and in the original box.
