    I like retro towels, some have really nice patterns/designs.
    I have an unrelated question. I am looking for towel bars, curtain rings and t.p. holder, etc. that are from the 80’s or 90’s. (I think that’s when) They are made of heavy duty plastic or melamine, are modern looking, can be chunky or tubular. I’ve been unsuccessful in my search so far to locate these. Do you have any resources or information about these type of bathroom accessories?

    I’m looking for vintage bath towels no longer than 36″, and blue or blue flowers. I see one set that you have but it doesn’t give size.
