I was so excited to find this item anywhere online that I told the seller about the story behind it and how my cousins and I used to eat m&ms out of the one that our grandmother had (no one had used it as an ashtray since the 70s, probably!). One of them has the original, but I wanted one of my own as a memento. It shipped out the very next day and she even sent me a bag of m&ms with it - so sweet! Thank you!!

Uniquely Beautiful, Simple and Well Made

In his spare time, my dad was a picker. He would bring home a 'find' now and then and take great pride in sprucing it up. Then he would proudly display it with a longing for times gone by and say, "They just don't make them like this anymore."

He saw a 'treasure'. As a kid, I saw old stuff. JUNK.

"You're from the 'throw away' generation" he once told me. And I, being a typical know-it-all-needed-to-have-the-last-word teenager, spouted back with, "Well you're the 'keep EVERYTHING' generation!"
My dad gently smiled and shook his head.

Years later, while packing up dad's things, I again came face to face with the 'treasures' he had collected over the years. But it was different this time. Not because these 'treasures' held sentimental value (although I welcomed it), but because I somehow had come to recognize that his 'treasures' were indeed, uniquely beautiful, simple and well made.

After 37 years as an RN, opening a vintage shop may seem like an unexpected endeavor. But I see similarities between what's vintage and the human body. Some of my most memorable patients were very aged. Although their bodies had failed them, they remained beautiful for having stood the test of time and for their rich 'patina' fashioned from life experiences.

Perhaps my appreciation for all things vintage has been an acquired and matured perspective of the past.
Or, maybe, it's simply now my turn to say,
"They just don't make them like this anymore."

    Hi, I'm Mr Bubbs. My intoxicating combination of cuteness and kissable cheeks has been inspiring my Mimi since May 2016. The lipstick marks may be an occupational hazard, but TOTALLY worth the love and kisses I get in return. Best job I've ever had!
