Is it "Economy", "TEOTWAWKI", "the Departed"?
My dollar two-eighty blue, plastic, under-the-counter paper towel holder busted apart. Rotsa ruck finding a replacement. They used to be sold in every color -- Scott and Rubbermaid used to market 'em.
Today, I can get any color I want as long as it's white.
I CAN get the pole-on-a-base ones in brass or wood (and WHY the HELL would I want that taking room on the counter?); under cabinet ones in a variety of materials and themes, to wit: Mario Brothers (Kee-riced on a pogo stick!), grape leaves, cows, roosters, but no blue plastic.
Internet search? Nothing.
What the hell has happened to the markets?
