Advertisements Show Paradise

As I'm doing research, I decided to investigate kitchen advertisements to discover trends and selling points.

Most of these ads wouldn't even need text to sell to me. Nor did they really need the text to sell the home-maker. Prosperous times allowed for more decor in the home. And boy.. did they WORK it! I mean, look at this ad for cabinets!! So gorgeous..

Kitcheney Basics

Wanna learn a thing or two vintage kitchens? I always do!

I found this great presentation online that has videos, photos, and good basic information to start off with. Please please PLEASE check this out! On the link, click "Launch Rich Media Scene", it is far more entertaining :)

Dear Journal: July 21, 2010

OMG someone was looking down on me and smiling, because I had an awesome thrifting day!

I was headed to ReStore and ReStore ONLY as I don't have a lot of cash and just needed an old colander to clean out the fish tank rocks. But, of course, I spent an hour scouring the shelves for something great.

Back to the Start.

Let's talk... kitchens. Kitschens? Kitchins?

I love thrifting, as does perhaps 78% of the people I know.

For some it is clothing. For some furniture. For me, kitchen supplies!

Utensils, Gadgets, Cookware, Dinnerware.. You name it, I love it.. much to the dismay of my husband.


I plan to talk all types of kitchen, drop some knowledge, and scour the brick and internet worlds of thrift for neat kitschy kitchen items.
