We all go a little kitsch sometimes

In flea markets, one does come across the most kitsch objects. The ones from 70's and 80's China are very amusing and they don't neccesarily come cheap. I've seen an old couple selling porcelain figurines of Chinese kids in a series of athletic pursuits, from ping pong to gymnastics. Not surprising as these are games that the Chinese excel in.
Today, I chanced upon the most unusual kitsch figurine. Three Chinese boys with the most quaint hair styles, carrying a gigantic Chinese peach. The most eclectic and amusing kitsch figurine I 've seen in a long time. And I had to buy it. My daughters do think I buy the strangest thing.
Well, we all go a little kitsch sometimes.
