The Gag Gift

I got a cheap, plastic set of mirror and 2 wall sconces as a gag gift for Christmas this year. This is just about the tackiest, most hideous thing you have ever seen in your life. I’m not sure which is more disgusting, the fact that somebody produced it in the first place, or the fact that someone bought it. My friends found it at an estate sale.

The friends who gave it to me are coming over on Saturday so I mounted the set on the dining room wall and I’ll see how long it takes for them to notice it. Here is the mirror and sconce set mounted and the box it came in. This is unbelievably bad molded plastic crap. Even the “mirror” is plastic.

Oh, it’s soooo Victorian!




I wonder how much I could get for it on Ebay?

Those cost 19.49 at Monkey Wards long about 1974.

1974? That sounds about right.

Dude. Every house in the entire borough of Queens has at least one of those sets prominently displayed.
