“Hello, Cutie!” The Interview

“Hello, Cutie!” The Interview | Kitsch | Scoop.it

A few weeks ago, I had the great pleasure of reviewing a new release which explores the collectible culture of “cute”. …And maybe exploits the rise of cute in contemporary culture. But in a good way — I swear. Entitled Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, the book was not only charming but so engaging that I just had to interview its author, Pamela Klaffke.

Why Collectors Say, "Hello, Cutie!"

Why Collectors Say, "Hello, Cutie!" | Kitsch | Scoop.it

"In Hello, Cutie!: Adventures in Cute Culture, Pamela Klaffke explores the cute phenomenon which many feel is exploding in our culture right now. From food, edible or inedible, to fashion, baby animals, and comics, Hello, Cutie! covers cute, vintage and contemporary. But primarily, Hello, Cutie! is a book about cute collectibles themselves and those who make and collect the cute as well."

Busy Hands from the 1950s – Making TV and Radio Scarfs - Blog - CollectorsQuest.com | Kitsch | Scoop.it

I found this delightful little pamphlet at an antique store and thought it was a hoot! I wondered what the grandkids would say if they called to see what I was doing and my response was “making a television scarf.” They probably would ask to talk to Papa right away, just to see if I was “off my meds.”
