My love of vintage and retro over new started when I was a little girl. When I would visit my great-grandmother she always took a special bit of time and would bring me to her vanity where she kept knick knacks, jewelry, and ephemera from her life. I remember sitting on the long, elegant vanity bench with her and seeing a picture of her as a Gibson girl (she was gorgeous!). In the picture she had a brooch at her neck and I told her how pretty I thought it was. She opened a box, brought out that brooch and pinned it on my Sunday dress. She told me the story of the brooch and then gave it to me. From that time I've been in love with vintage and retro and I miss my great-grandmother to this day.
I have great resources where I live, and will bring you the odd, the beautiful, and the interesting things I run across in my travels. My favorite items are vintage and retro…
