Junk Love Monday: Oh, How Tempting!

 He's usually red, only sometimes ugly, and always pops up at Halloween. (Sometimes, he's a girl!) And, he's highly collectible. At the risk of sounding weird and dangerous, let's talk about the devil....

No, we don't collect devils. We have a couple of pieces that are part of other collections (a red lady devil swizzle stick, and a footed restaurantware mug with a devil over flames, like the ones pictured above), but in honor of those true collectors out there, we thought we'd highlight some wickedly awesome, devilish items that we've found lately.

Collecting devils doesn't mean that you are evil, or of a particular religion, or crazy. They are undeniably cool, and it's interesting to see how he has changed stylistically over the centuries (or not). And, with Halloween just around the corner, devils are easier to find, and love (in a junk love sort of way). We confess that we're...tempted.
