One of the antique malls near my house has a booth that’s constantly filled with 80s nostalgia. Last weekend I ran across these ceramic California Raisin figures, roughly 9″ tall and marked $22 for all four. I didn’t end up buying them, but after my son asked “Who are those guys again?” we spent the evening watching raisin commercials on Youtube.
I just got home after having spent two weeks on the road, one in Chicago (vacation) and the other in Kansas City (work). While traveling I always keep one eye open for cool retro things to share, so imagine my surprise when I found this ceramic guy among the Halloween decorations at my Aunt and Uncle’s house in Chicago!
After taking a picture of the statue and asking my Aunt Debi about it, she informed me that she made it. How cool is that? Not only are my relatives awesome enough to have a ceramic E.T. as a Ghost in their living room — they’re awesome enough to have made one!
I love my family. They make my little E.T. loving heart glow red.
