So, I have a thing about travel plates. I love the hopefulness, the nostalgia, the sweet things they highlight that would be of little or no interest to the modern traveler (University of Mineral Mining! Deer!). When Melissa and I were shopping, we found someone’s old collection of plates, many of them marked with bits of tape indicating the year and the person who gave the plate as a gift. The plates were scattered all over the store, and we’d shout to each other victoriously every time we found a new one.
I like them grouped in with clean-lined modern objects on a shelf. Something about the kitsch factor really pops against more spare objects. They’re also sweet hung in a personalized grouping on the wall.
Anyway, some (but not all) of them made their way to the Mighty Goods Finds shop. See if we have one to mark your hometown, birthplace, favorite vacation, or fantasy trip. My dream is for this woman’s collection to inspire dozens more.
