I have a serious penchant for all things 1960s. I love the clothes, learning about the culture, and everything mod. Some of my favorite 60s figures are Edie Sedgwick, Audrey Hepburn, Mia Farrow, and Andy Warhol — I love reading about the decade and watching films from it!
So when I was at Goodwill one day last year and I found a gem from the 1960s, I was ecstatic! Sitting on a cart tucked in the back was a set of Peter Max plates and bowls — each with a $.99 sticker on the back.
Peter Max is a mod/psychedelic artist whose work is exactly what you imagine when you think 1960s: bold colors and “cosmic” themes. His art was often referred to as the visual counterpart to the Beatles’ music. Check out all the Peter Max goodies available on Etsy.
The set I found was three plates and three bowls. Some research shows these finds are worth a lot more than the couple dollars I paid for them!

I use one of the bowls as a jewelry holder!
