Allee Willis’ Kitsch O’ The Day – Peace Foot

peace-foot_2911
I’ve seen trillions of sculptures of hands giving the peace sign but this is the first time I’ve seen a foot flashing the international symbol of love and harmony. As if that wasn’t kitschy enough, a cheaper made sculpture you could never find. Adorned with a flimsy paper peace sign sticker and colored to make it look like rich wood, this peace foot is made of incredibly cheap plastic, lucky if it weighs an ounce despite being 6 inches tall.  There’s no manufacturers mark anywhere on the appendage, as if whoever made it didn’t want to take credit for such a lovely and peaceful foot.

  • This is fantastic! The foot, and your blog! I just stumbled across your blog on the interwebs accidentally although I follow a lot of vintage blogs. I’m adding you to my blog roll! That foot without the peace sticker would be an enigma. I’d always wonder why those two toes were so far apart! LOL!

      Thank you, Amber! Are you a collector? And have you checked out AWMOk.com, The Allee Willis Museum Of Kitsch? That’s a vintage lovers treasure trove. The Kitschenette wing is both my collection and a zillion other people’s. I put between 7 and 10 new things up a day. Please check it out. And if you collect, by all means put stuff up. Everyone’s very chatty and enthusiastic there about things like feet with peace stickers. Hope to see you there.
