Retro Mosaic Ashtray... "Ashtray"?!

I love these vintage tiny ceramic tiled ashtrays! I used to have a bunch of them but after the last big move I whiddled it down to just one fave. So now when I find one in good shape I put it up for sale to spread the love. Funny thing is that no one seems to describe them as "ashtrays" anymore.... we still smoke cigarettes but I guess its just no p.c . to talk about ashtrays! (And by the habits of some of my neighbors, it seems we dont use ashtrays anymore either...) Check out this round black & gold speckled one: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=42201272


Montreal's Capri Lounge!

An ad from the 1950s. My dad, who was a comedian, played there back then. Love the cocktail graphic!
