Retro Vintage Inspired Chalkware Chalk ware—both kitschy & cool—is Barbie K’s passion. When the price of vintage chalkware sky rocketed and it was no longer affordable, she decided to take matters into her own hands—literally! Barbie K has created her own line of “retro-reinterpreted” chalkware including mermaids, hula girls and pin-up girls. The hand poured, hand painted mermaids with the pouty red lips are her best seller. Barbie K is the brand of Barb Kopera, a local gal with a heart of gold and a love of all things retro. Her mermaids are top quality and would be a fantastic addition to your retro inspired decor! Great in any room from Tiki inspired bars to nautical themed bathrooms.
