Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Female Beauty Products Wastebasket

beauty-wastebasket_7961

I found this trashcan for 99¢ at a thrift shop in Santa Barbara, CA. and it’s been the proud receptacle of Willis waste ever since. I often stare at the illustrations of perfume atomizers, combs, compacts and other elegantly sketched artifacts that comprise a typical female’s cosmetic regime, loving more each time the absolutely perfect 1950′s color combination of white, pink, gold and black as applied to the metal.
Made by Harvell and standing 13″ tall x 10-3/4″ wide, a lot of the paint has scraped off this baby but as far as I’m concerned she just gets prettier with age.

    Thank you, Dene. Yes, this is better than TV and I thank you so much for appreciating it!

    You ought to hit alleewillis.com while you’re at it. Not sure if you know what else I do besides collect kitsch. I think you’ll have a good time there too.
