Aaaahhhh! Melmac! I love Melmac. I lovefinding it and handling it and finding good homes for it. In the last year I found some amber,white,pink,turquoise and green all of them near mint condition, but I found some really unusual pieces last week turquoise and white! How cool is that?
They were hiding in a thrift shop I had written off because it was snobbish,stuffy and expensive! On a whim last friday I decided to go and drag SD (step daughter) there. It was great fun! Here's the Melmac some good ol' Canadian Melmac made in Toronto!
I'd never seen cups with 2 different colors before!
So of course I was reminded of this ad in Chatelaine dec. 1958
For those who don't know Chatelaine is the oldest Canadian women's magazine still in circulation. It was dubbed The Canadian Home Journal. It's really nice to see ads for canadian products. Who would've thought Melmac would still be popular today?
