No kitsch goes unturned or in this case, undiscovered. This is another item I found while digging around Allee’s studio. Vintage gum dislplay which I am guessing is dated somewhere in the 50’s? This is perfect for holding pens, pencils, exacto knives, and red, white & blue bean bag things.

You would be surprised at the goodies I uncover while snooping around the office.

Loving the green ribbon alongside the side of this beech-nut flavor.

    I love this little display case. I’m not sure if it’s 1950s or 60s but it’s long held a great selection of my drawing pencils. I love writing and drawing with pencils as opposed to pens. I do write with pens but will always choose a soft lead pencil if I have a choice.

    I love that one of the little catnip cat pillows was sitting in the box when you photographed it.

    The next time you’re at Willis Wonderland and see this box you should go through it. The pencil selection is thrilling. And tons of them are vintage.
