I’m going to keep this really simple because I, Deanna Dahlsad, have been writing a lot of “about” pages lately and no longer find myself so fascinating. My projects, yes; me, not-so-much.

Kitschy Kitschy Coo began six years ago (in 2004), after long conversations between Deanna & Derek Dahlsad.  We’ve had several incarnations and reincarnations (the wording of which probably perturbs the atheist, Derek, who affectionately and perhaps ironically in a pop cultural way has dubbed himself Azrael — as in Azrael Brown).

After a a few years as a group affair, things dwindled down to the dynamic duo of Derek & Deanna; now it’s mainly just Deanna aka Pop Tart, with the occasional offering from Derek. Hence the greater number of “Deanna” links in the blog’s sidebar.

But don’t let the changes in number of authors or tech publishing platforms fool you, we’re still tickling your uglybone with collectibles, culture, & things that make you cringe, with a particular focus on antique, vintage and retro artifacts.

We live life as happily married eggheads, obsessing, educating, collecting, mocking, creating, and loving in Fargo, North Dakota (with as many trips as we can back to Wisconsin, where Deanna’s originally from) and raising our egghead children to do the same.

If you find us simply fascinating, or peculiar, click the links in this page to find out more about us, follow us, etc.

  1. Just read your lunchbox entry. I don’t know what’s it’s worth to you –but vinyl Sleeping Beauty lunchboxes are on Ebay.

  2. Hi Deanna,

    I came across your old blog website, and I found a picture of a really cute scarf on there, and I was wondering if you still had the pattern or knew where I could get it.

    It’s the Girls Cupcake scarf pattern by Jaybird Designs.

    If you could let me know, I would appreciate it. :) I have a little niece that would love this. :D

    Thank you!

  3. I came up with the name kitschy kitschy coo and started a website – kitschy_kitschy_coo since 2001 or 2002. I had professional web developer work on it in 2003. I wasn’t pursuing kitchy kitschy coo again until 2006. Now I find what looks to be the full website for rent again. Do you own just the blog? If you would share any info to shed light on this, I’d greatly appreciate it. Even my eBay seller name is kitchy_kitchy_coo.com. After a long period of time, I now finally feel very good about starting up again and creating. Thank you.

  4. Hi Deanna!

    I came across an old blog post of yours when I was researching a vintage dog figurine for my Etsy shop. It has it’s butt up in the air and a hole where the tail should be. Ring any bells? Anyway, I thought I’d write you, firstly to ask if you ever found out what the use was for these kitschy creatures? And secondly, to let you know, in case you’re still collecting them that I just put one up in my shop. (https://www.etsy.com/shop/thebakerandthebar?ref=si_shop)

    Great blog! I’ll be back to check in, I do love the kitsch!
