If you remember from this post, I
Melmac was the brand name of dishware that American Cyanamid produced, but there were many other makers, that used other names such as Texas Ware, Bootonware, even some Tubbermaind, etc. However, most of the people just refer to most melamine dishware as melmac, even if the American Cyanamid company did not produce it.
I became obsessed with Melmac, when I was younger, admiring the wonderful melmac mustard style dishware set my grandma had. I had bought some pink cups before freshman year, because they are very durable, but lately my love for Melmac has just grown much more, as you saw from that post above. I just love the simplicity of them, the different styles, and how great they are for everyday use.
Therefore, I have decided that every Monday I will post some pictures of Melmac that I particularly like from Etsy, or (as I head home for summer) I will share some of my own pieces from my ever-growing collection.
So, to jump start Melmac Monday, I present to you a rainbow of Melmac.
P.S. Etsy has some great Melmac things, but I would advise looking at thrift stores, estate sales, and even your grandma's cabinets for pieces too, just because shipping can get pretty pricey with dishware.
P.P.S. Here are some great links about the history of Melmac and how to keep your dishes looking pretty!
