KITSCH in Context

“She got off at the next stop and found herself standing in front of an old coffee shop with fake-pine garlands and fake-velvet bows on its doors. … At the thought of yet another year without having a coffee shop of her own to run (though with less kitsch)….” — Charmaine Wilkerson, Black Cake, 2022
