Retro Cognoscenti


She was amazing. I remember going to our local flea market as a child, with our entire family, and under that tin roof at the Farmers Market in Ferndale, Mi. I would find such treasures! I began collecting salt and pepper shakers at that young age. Really just ones that were not very expensive, or even worth much. But ones that caught my eye and seemed to call out to me

" pssssd, take me home!"

My mother was a collector from way back. She first began her history collecting cat figurines in the 40's and 50s. She moved on to glass insulators as an adult and suddenly it just took off! She was now on the hunt for things that reminded her of her childhood, her mother, grandmother and great grand mothers.

To this day, I still covet most of the items these women had, and things she also collected.

But now, I am on my own search. My own destiny. I want to find these beautiful objects and bring them to others, looking for the same thing.

Looking for their childhood, their parents childhood. Looking for beauty, and fun, and joyful times. Looking for things from a past that was momentous, and memorable.

Looking for the smile-worthy moments in life~ where you can hold something in your hand, and be filled with happiness. Like those quirky little salt and pepper shakers I remember so fondly from my past. And when I am at an estate sale, or market, or passing a vendor, and I catch one of the pairs I had as a child, suddenly, a smile is on my face and that exact moment is filled and satisfied.

Please enjoy, and I hope you find your smiles as well...
