About

Real Vintage Items for Real People

One of my favorite stories as a child was The Velveteen Rabbit. I loved it for its warmth, its sweetness, and the lessons it taught.

As an adult, I still have a strong affinity for the story... And I love to find old toys that have been pre-loved, from an era when there was no such thing as throw away, dollar store merchandise. Things were loved and treated with care. I strive to bring you only quality items. However, there may be items in my store that do not appeal to everyone, due to their pre-loved condition. I admit that many of the items I love the best are the ones that are missing some fur here and there, and have been restitched, repaired, and then loved some more. If that is not your style, I also have some items in very nice condition.

***************************************************************************

"What is REAL?" the Velveteen Rabbit asked the Skin Horse one day. "Does it mean having things that buzz inside you and a stick-out handle?"

"Real isn't how you are made," said the Skin Horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."

"Does it hurt?" asked the Velveteen Rabbit .

"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

"It doesn't happen all at once," said the Skin Horse. "You become. It takes a long time. That's why it doesn't happen often to people who break easily, or have sharp edges, or who have to be carefully kept. Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in your joints and very shabby. But these things don't matter at all, because once you are Real you can't be ugly, except to people who don't understand. But once you are Real you can't become unreal again. It lasts for always."
