Melamine Melange

I recently came across a fabulous selection of colourful melamine on Etsy, and I just had to share it with you!  All items are from Down East Attic, which is an excellent Maine-based vintage shop.  
If you know me, you know I love all things East Coast (even though I've never been south of the Canadian border)... so I'm pretty excited about this post!

Down East Attic offers a diverse yet cohesive selection of vintage housewares and collectibles at great prices.  The shop is a pleasure to browse; the photographs are beautiful.  But you don't have to take my word for it... check out these wonderful melamine items!

First up, this fabulous blue and white lidded bowl by Vacron:

These colourful Melamine Ware ramekins are so fun!  I bet these would cheer up even the dimmest, drabbest kitchen.

This is a great turquoise Melmac bowl.  Is it just me, or is turquoise always "in"?

These Allied Chemical cup and saucer sets are wonderfully retro!  I love the dark avocado colour.

Which of these colours would you most like to see in your kitchen: turquoise, orange, red, or dark avocado green?


  1. Wow! What a great feature, I'm tickled pink! (another of my favorite colors). Awhile back I realized that my shop needed some more color, and what better way than vintage melamine? Thanks again for the colorful review!

  2. I am a plastic/melamine/tupperware fan and these are so retro-cute and colorful!!

  3. Thank you so much, everyone! I had a lot of fun with this post; I'm glad you enjoyed it. :)

  4. So many Lemons! mmm

  5. I love the colours and the lemons, too!
