Last Saturday I had the distinguished and royal honor of meeting the King and Queen of all Tupperware collectors, Bob and Marilyn Wilson at the Cooper Museum in Upland, California where their enormous collection is now on display. There are also many pieces for sale! That is what inspired this week's SLIDE OF THE WEEK: TUPPERWARE FACTORY, MEXICO, 1967. (I'm still waiting to find a vintage slide of a Tupperware Party!) Anyway, I stumbled drunk with pleasure through the historic Tupperware display as the compulsive obsessive collectors gave me a gleeful piece-by-piece guided tour. I had no idea that in the 50s they made Tupperware cigarette cases and poker chips. Of course my spirit soared. There were so many pieces that I recognized from my childhood.CLICK FOR MORE!
