Very cool RV napkins and drink coasters



I was very excited to find these drink coaster and cocktail napkins at a kitchen store named the PotRack in pretty Jacksonville, Oregon, right along the main street.

rsj-logoTo me, the most impressive merchandise in the store besides the coasters and napkins is the big selection of plates, bowls and other kitchen utensils made of Melmac. Do you remember Melmac? It’s a type of plastic that was popular several decades ago. It was ugly, plain and simple, and that’s why it faded away before long. Melmac was also the home planet of Alf, in the TV series of the same name.

But, wow! You should see this new stuff! It’s gorgeous! Plus it’s lightweight and impossible to break (I would think) —perfect for elegant dining in an RV. I didn’t take any photos, but you can get an idea of what I’m talking about at

I didn’t buy any Melmac, but I did buy the coasters and napkins. If you can’t make it to Jacksonville to buy your own, they are available at Coasters. Napkins— Chuck W.

I’m not sure Melmac is microwave safe.

I love Melmac. Maybe I don’t have an eye for beauty, but it’s light weight, easy to clean, and extremely durable. That’s beautiful to me.
