Retro Kitchen Dreams CAN Come True! - Elmira Oven Works
Behold the North Star Oven from Elmira Oven Works! This is not a vintage oven. It is a modern repro. I want it. Now. I just need to win the lottery.
Anyway, I found out about Elmira when I was in my doctor's waiting room a few years ago. I was flipping through Architectural Digest and when I saw an advertisement promotion featuring the North Star series of ovens, fridges, ranges, splashbacks, microwaves, and dishwasher covers; I wanted to run out and found the nearest showroom that offered all those retro kitchen goodies.
Like I said, if I had the money, I would totally re-do my 80s era kitchen. I would replace all the appliances with robin's egg blue wares. I would replace vinyl flooring with black and white tile. Then I would put on one of my vintage aprons and never leave. I would bake and cook all day. Who needs to go to work when I have a dream kitchen to play in?!

What do you think? I say "drool-worthy" for sure!
