Kitsch & Bath: The Cheekiest Under-$50 Finds For The Home

You know that feeling of accomplishment accompanied with successfully creating a beautiful living space to call your own? You know, a "big-girl" home — a place where you can have your friends over for homemade kale chips, where clothes live behind closet doors instead of piles on the floor, where cabinets are now void of souvenir shot glasses collected on spring break road trips. Yes, rejoice in your maturity...until you realize that you miss those souvenir shot glasses. Well, maybe you didn't need a baker's dozen of Six Flags Magic Mountain drinkware but perhaps you should have held on to one.
As you look around your polished adult-life digs, it's clear what you're longing for most is a tawdry nod to your past, a little corner of silly with a sentimental twist.
Well, kitschy-throwback, knickknack seekers, we've pulled together a group of unapologetically fun home pick-me-uppers on a rather serious budget of under $50.
From pop culture humorist home-design superstars like Jonathan Adler to independent Brooklyn-based irreverent ceramist Michiko Shimada, these highly designed-yet-utterly-unpretentious home accents will fill the hole in your heart where tiny, mass-produced, theme-park drinkware once flourished.
