I’m always up for discovering new things. I was prompted to gather some jewish themed kitsch here from “Willis Wonderland” after a friend commented to me recently that I “looked jewish” in a particular picture. I’m okay with that, doesn’t bother me a bit but what I have always been fascinated by was what is it exactly that makes someone “look” another way? I should listen to this set of records then and really complete the “look”.

I actually have “KURZ” tattooed on my chest as it’s my partners middle name.

Kosher sign.

This little sign sits on the kitchen counter at “Willis Wonderland”.

      You have no idea how obsessed I’ve been with that book title ever since I bought the book about 20 years ago! That’s how the whole Jewish section of my kitsch collection began that title drove me so nuts. But I’ve had a couple of people debate me on it and insist that Mr. Soloff used it right. I don’t see on what planet that’s possible but these friends, both Jewish, insist that’s right. Some folks from the Skirball Center came over to see my collection of Jewish kitsch a few months ago and we all had a laugh about the title.
