Vintage 1950's Mid-Century Reproductions

What's your opinion about reproductions? Do you incorporate them into your decor?

I figure, there are enough vintage things out there, that one really doesn't need them, except maybe in a very few very specific cases.

Part of the reason I am asking, someone gave me an Amazon gift certificate, and they don't have a whole lot of vintage reproductions that have high customer ratings. Their KitKat clock rates as "a piece of junk" lol.

And why are atomic print materials so expensive? A pillow for $59? No thanks, I'll buy a piece of original barkcloth and make my own, thank you very much.

I will need to get new, reproduction kitchen appliances, unless I can find someone to rebuild and refinish my original pink kitchen appliances, and I'm going to buy a new couch and chair for the living room because I want brand new, and they make 50's style couches and chairs. Plus I want them in black, and you don't see vintage couches and matching chairs in black.

But what about you?

Do you use reproductions, what kinds, and why?
