Kitsch Allee Willis has commented on.
Comments

These are all of comments I've made about all the beautiful Kitsch in the Kitschenette Wing of the AWMoK:


 

Beaded clown

  1. Allee Willis says:

    Let us know if you do.

  2. Allee Willis says:

    Adorable! And I don't even like clowns.

    Is the lace wrapped around each bead or do the beads come that way? And how long did that take to make?

KITSCHportant NOTICE!!! PLEASE READ BEFORE PROCEEDING

  1. Allee Willis says:

    Well, I love this note from you! How long did you keep your AMOK going? I'm not aware of Morris Mertz but I'm certainly fascinated with him now that I've read what you wrote. My greatest joy is to be stumbling into a store that time forgot that was packed with unopen gems. There was one here in Glendale, California called Record Products that I stumbled on around 1982 and I eventually bought out at least half of the store over a period of the next few years. No one was ever in there so it was really whatever I could afford each time I went. The first time I drove up and saw the closed sign on the door I needed sedation for about a month. I have never forgotten that place. So I can imagine your thrill when you stumbled upon Morris Mertz. If you still have gems lying around please post them here. I'm not active anymore curating every day but if you write another comment where you put this one I will make sure and look and post. It is excellent meeting another Kitsh wise person! Oh, and if you haven't seen this, this was in the Washington post yesterday: The first video is packed with kitsch: http://www.washingtonpost.com/entertainment/music/hit-songwriter-and-kitsch-provider-allee-willis-now-has-a-song-for-detroit/2015/05/14/a417d020-f8d8-11e4-9030-b4732caefe81_story.html

Deer Wall Pocket

  1. Allee Willis says:

    Hey, Joe! I can't tell if it's a price tag hanging down from the deer's mouth but it may not be a wall pocket so much as a string holder (used primarily in bakeries in the 1940s and 50s to grab string quickly from to wrap packages.) I would suggest doing an the eBay search for "vintage deer wall flowers" where you are emailed when items come up. Make sure and check the description box as well so it searches everything written about the item and not just the item name.

  2. Allee Willis says:

    Me too. I never get a thrill when I realllly pay for something so that's a rare occurrence, indeed.

  3. Allee Willis says:

    Seriously adorable. Perhaps a little too floral for me but I love how the slant of the eyes echoes the point of the nose and how the pupil matches the little ball at the end of the nose.

Twin Meeting in Bingen (Germany)

  1. Allee Willis says:

    Love this!! Your father and uncle look identical. And I love that they have those bowties on.

    The facially-folickled male twins down front kill me too.

    The male twins are much more stylish than the female twins.

Jetway 707, a long Toronado.

  1. Allee Willis says:

    I want ALL of these!!! Okay, I'd settle for one.

    I've actually been obsessing lately about my lifelong dream of having some type of travel vehicle, especially as I'm having to go back and forth from LA to Detroit so often for http://www.wesingtheD.com.

    So many of these are chopped from a pre-existing real car. I still have my 1955 Studebaker Commander and my 1955 DeSoto Fireflyte sitting on blocks waiting for their mommy to have enough coin to get them going again. Hmmmmmm.... I'm sure someone on my block has a machete!

    Though I think I would go for the Oldsmobile Toronado as it was custom-designed for the occasion.
