Hello, nostalgia. This resin roller skate doorstop from Koo de Kir is taking me way back to 1991. I'm racing around the rink — backwards, obviously — in a puffy paint-adorned sweatshirt featuring horses to the bumping strains of "Two Legit to Quit." (And yes, I still am. Thanks for asking.)

This isn't exactly a recession-proof, need-to-have purchase, but we should all have a little whimsy in our homes, right? And it's a nod to my late 80s-early 90s childhood without the usual neon trappings and bad hair.
In related news, I suddenly have an urge to break out Dire Straits' "Making Movies" album and listen to "Skateaway" on repeat.
