I love vintage! I mean really love vintage! And I realized today that I probably always have, even when I was young and thought everything was REALLY OLD! I loved classic cars by the time my parents took the training wheels off my bike. And I thought the clothes and music of the 50's was so cool. We had a sock hop when I was in Girl Scouts and I was thrilled to learn to Jitterbug! I do have to admit though, that as a child of the 70's, I was not particularly fond of the fashions, especially the ones my grandma bought me! But now, even the 70's have their appeal.

I loved classic cars by the time my parents took the training wheels off my bike. And I thought the clothes and music of the 50's was so cool.

I do have to admit though, that as a child of the 70's, I was not particularly fond of the fashions, especially the ones my grandma bought me! But now, even the 70's have their appeal. I love hunting for vintage treasure and being surprised at the quirky and odd things that turn up! Some of the things I bring home are here solely because they make me laugh. But, if I don't love it, it won't show up in our Etsy shop.

And when God brought my wonderful husband into my life, it turned out he loved "old stuff" too, including me, as I'm a few years older. He had already been collecting vintage things for years, in the form of cars and car parts. He loves to play with metal and spends his working hours restoring and building classic autos and street rods. He's in charge of loading and unloading the van when we visit auctions and flea markets, as well occasional repairs to vintage items. He also keeps us stocked up on old books and magazines - if he disappears at the flea market, that's where I'll find him!

Thanks for visiting our store and check back often as we add more unique and interesting items.
