Mad about Plaid

Even though the holidays are over now, I've still got plaid on my brain. I associate plaid with the holidays because of some spectacular matching plaid outfits that my siblings and I wore in the early '80s. But these Team EtsyRain members have some plaid items that won't have you flashing back two decades!
