Vintage19something is a collection of artifacts from everyday life in the 40s, 50s, 60s, and 70's. Like a time-capsule, my shop includes a bit of everything from vintage Libbey glasses and tumblers, mod jewelry, depression glass to vintage souvenirs. You will never know what I might have next but neither do I!
Almost everything in my shop is from the 1970s or earlier. I look for artifacts which are exemplars of the era they were born suggesting the social and aesthetic mood of the day. I am fascinated by items I recall from my childhood as well as things my mother may recall from hers. I am forever curious about the stories these items tell about the people who used them and how these items reflect a different time and a different way of life. I hope to do my little part in preserving a bit of vanishing Americana along the way.
