    Does this mean you can't buy the Pink lids and handles anymore? What a bummer. Maybe they have some other pretty pastel colors that would compliment the pink.

    One things for sure; about 45 minutes after browsing and sampling at a bad *** Chili cookoff, color just doesn't seem to matter anymore.

    WOW!!:rofl:

    All of the surfaces in my master bathroom are a slight pink tint that we have learned to live with, and I just recently replaced all polished brass with brushed nickel, but wow...that is something

    Was everything that ugly back in the day? Awesome pics! I love to see out dated fixtures as well.

    Nebraska is farm country, and as I travel around the state doing tile installations I always put me and the guys in the cheapest motel I can find. Believe me...Nebraska has a lot of cheap motels. They all look like those pictures.:)

    Hold on to those fixtures. They may be worth big bucks. The 50s and 60s look will be modern again. Just look at the almond green return.
