I know I’ve said this before but these two bizarre creations are the absolute top of the pyramid of kitsch and weirdness! They take grand prize! We got a lil tomato with succulent sexy lips and a top hat and an onion headed pepper bodied lass sitting on a damn carrot. Holy crud!
$14 and $22.
Hitler was a bad, bad man. He didn’t have many fans on this side of the pond back in during the days of WWII. To show distain for this shitty human being an ashtray was fashioned in the likeness of his greasy head, so that one might put cigarettes out in his gaping mouth. Sorry guys we’re keeping this one. NFS.

You cant ignore them, coveted and sought after, these objects of glory and achievement tell the world that you are better than the lesser and worthy of praise. We love these trophys for a different reason, their perfect posture and graceful deco lines stand alone as well crafted pieces of art. Come take a look for yourself, you’ve earned it.
