just another manic monday... maybe?

sometimes a trip down memory lane offers solace, nostalgia & perhaps even a bit of "therapy"...

having attending a funeral yesterday where the minister referenced a day when friends and neighbors would come by an "sit a spell..." then having a few customers today at Vintage Village reference stopping by for there "therapy" it brought to mind the refreshed, calming effect most of us feel when surrounded by things from our past.  Gosh, taking the time to just slow down a minute does work wonders for the soul. 

Things familiar from our parents or grandparents.  So often at Vintage Village we hear "oh, my grandmother had that"... "have no idea what I'm going to do with this but I grew up with my Mom using a bowl like this everyday".  Nostalgia is such a treasured gift.

We all got a chuckle out of one of our customers saying she was here for "her therapy".  I ask Carla if that is why we are here so much too...?  Perhaps, but what a wonderful place to get to spend your
days.  Make a few bucks and enjoy the company of such charming wares of days gone by. 


Moon added a refreshing reminder to her booth wall this weekend.
"Nothing Good Ever Ends"...

Nostalgia...  memories of days gone by are certainly amongst
my short list of "good" I hope will always be.

In a world filled with "manic Mondays" we all need a little quiet, serenity, peaceful, relaxing therapy. Retail therapy works for many of us obviously.

Our place for nostalgia.  Come by ~ we have a feeling you'll like what you see!

  1. A lovely post and so true. Blogging and antiquing and beading and costume making are all part of my personal therapy. Got sidetracked this weekend so I will try and get out to see everyone next Saturday.
