Blog Spotlight ::: MELMAC CENTRAL

Melmac is:

Retrochalet is:

Ira collects vintage plastic dinnerware (melamine dinnerware, more commonly called Melmac) and keeps a whole blog about it!

Melmac Central is a blog where you can "come sit for a spell" - there are fantastic collections of information and photographs you won't find anywhere else!

My main love is Russel Wright melamine. I created this blog while my mom was going though chemotherapy, as a past time to get my mind off of her illness. Some of the happiest times with my mom were spent in the kitchen with our old plastic Texasware Mixing bowls making cookies when I was little. Every time I post I still think of her, and miss her but I know how happy she would be that someone else out there enjoys those old dishes too. Please grab my button and link this site to your site! ~ Ira Mency

Whether you are a collector, or just interested in old fascinating things, Melmac Central / Retro Chalet will keep you busy for hours! The blog is social-media friendly and ready to interact with you! (There's even an etsy shop on-site!)

Ira's goal is a noble one: for people to collect and learn about the old and not have to buy the new and mass produced. Without the exception of a few streamlined plastic sites, this information is not readily out there and it's frustrating when looking up information---the books on the market are so old and outdated.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
