Where my vintage comes from .....

My love for vintage was inspired by my Mother who grew up poor, her up bringing in an Irish/Greek large family instilled valuing what you have by saving it for someone who could benefit later from it's use.

Mom saved all the vintage in my shop, the family vintage that I was able to rescue before my older sister tossed it all away.
I was forced to perform a "Mission Impossible" one dark rainy night dressed in black, with black trash bags when I quietly rolled up in the driveway of a home that had been our family's for 45 years.
With a mission to save the vintage from the attic before my sister's orchestrated estate sale, having secured a key after she changed the locks to bar me from my childhood home.
A home that both my older siblings evicted me from in 2003 along with my 9 year old daughter, without a dime to our name.
Why? That's another tragic story for a blog I have yet to create.

Back to my Mom...
Even after all her accomplishments, to list a few, she was my best friend, she aspired to the fashion style of Jackie Kennedy, she was the stable force beneath all of my father's political achievements as well as her own political achievements as noted on this website:

My Mother was a woman who never excepted "it couldn't be done" by breaking thru any limitation or obstacle. Her passion to help those in need can simply be noted when I asked this question from a diary with questions I gave to her as a gift late in life while she was suffering from dementia. Even then her passion to help those in need still shined thru in her answer.
If I were a school lunch, I’d be …. I’d be a big enough meal to feed those who did not eat breakfast.
Think about it.
So when you're making a purchase from my shop, your honoring my Mother's belief that I support, to recycle what is still valuable, to appreciate an item that holds a memory to remember: never lose sight of your authentic self.

Your also helping me pay my bills
Thank you for that support !
