Who Killed American Kitsch? | Collectors Weekly
For home-front America, World War II was a time of shared sacrifice, when people gave up simple pleasures to support those fighting overseas in the greatest struggle the civilized world had ever known. After the war, though, society breathed a collective sigh of relief and went out looking for a bit of fun.

One of the easiest things to do was to update one’s décor, as Donald-Brian Johnson discovered when he and co-author, Leslie Piña, began researching “Postwar Pop: Memorabilia of the Mid-20th Century,” which focuses on art pottery, paper goods, and holiday ephemera, and was published in 2011 by Schiffer. “During the war and immediately after it, foreign imports had been cut off, so all of these domestic art pottery firms sprang up,” Johnson says. “They were very successful until the early 1950s, when imports from Japan took over. By the time the ’60s rolled around, most of the U.S. firms were out of business.”

What Will Become of the World’s Biggest Picnic Basket?
"Standing seven stories tall and measuring 208 feet at its widest, for years the Newark, Ohio, building housed the headquarters of the Longaberger Company, its exterior painstakingly modeled on the famous handwoven hampers created and distributed by the basket manufacturer. But as of last week, employees will no longer pack in like sandwiches or march in like ants as they go to work, as Longaberger has consolidated its offices elsewhere, leaving the fate of this rare architectural landmark up in the air."
