Palm Springs Past
Some of my favorite things to collect are ephemera; things that were meant to be thrown away. I have a budding colletion of ashtrays and matches from Palm Springs Nightclubs, was really surprised to find this tabletopper from The Doll House, famous for Peggy Lee's performances there, and where Joan Crawford apparently took up waiting tables for an evening, to prove she could do it, just like her performance in Mildred Pierce. Also love the Chi-Chi menu!
