I suspect that many of you

antique lovers may share my

love and appreciation of

all things old and

history in general.

Here is a link to a really

cool color video of New York City

in the summer of 1939 -

An afterthought...

I just realized the other day

that with my mother, aka "Granny",

working in the store, my daughter, Jessie,

at the Garden Shop, and my other daughter,

Hannah, at The Vintage Rental Co,

we have three generations working together!

How great is that?

(And we all still like each other!)
