I'm in corporate advertising at Dillard's, before which I was a journalist for 12 years, but I've been a collector of vintage finds since I was a teenager when I discovered a high school autograph book, circa 1942. It belonged to a girl who lived not too far from where I grew up and contained the schooltime platitudes you'd expect to read in a yearbook — though they were written in a charming slang I'd never heard.
Amid World War II, the girl was about to be married to her high school sweetheart, whose sister happened to be her best friend and wrote a beautiful page-long entry in the book. The words of those who knew her told a story about her life.
How could I not love old things after such a find? Every item from the past tells a story, though some require more research than others. But that's part of the fun!…
