Cassette tapes have gone the way of eight tracks, obsolete with the march of time, but I feel nostalgia every time I see one. As a throwback to old technology, here are five fun objects-of-desire inspired by cassette tapes. May they rest in peace!
I swoon over the coffee table in Photo 1. The bright colors on the cedar shaving satchel in Photo 4 are very current. And the red, new-in-box cassette recorder in Photo 3 is very tempting. An added bonus is that items 4 and 5 are eco-friendly.
