    Old Fart, Young Packaging.

    I've always had a bit of a passion for and fascination with the old fashioned. I think it started when I was a little kid going through my grandmother's old knicknacks. Now, my grandmother had my mother fairly late in life--I don't know the exact age, but I'm sure she was 45...

    I love old things. There’s something about

    the design of clothes, books and homewares, even posters and buildings, before 1970 that are (mostly) elegant and beautiful.

    Our Ancestors Wouldn't Recognize Most Of Us...

    While our world has a myriad of distractions and amenities, it's softened us up, and separated us from our neighbors. When life was a lot harder I think the "down time" and rewards were much greater in feeling. A long days work for 2 or 3 dollars but in silver, or gold. The...

    ~Dusting Powder~

    Confession: I use old ladies dusting powder after my bath. I love the fresh cool talcum powder that is so very softly scented and creates a puff of white magic when you open the lid. The clean aroma wafting around my fresh scrubbed nakedness makes me think of my Grandmother and...

    Respect

    I had older parents, whose ways were different than everyone else's. As a child, it was hard to be different. While everyone else called their parents' friends by their first names, we were to address adults as Mr. or Mrs. These days I do not want children to call me by my first...

    Very Much...

    I am fascinated by history and the way it relates to buildings, material things. These things left behind are echoes of what was, and simply by being near them, you can feel the impression of the past. I feel this way with many things, but one example that readily comes to mind...

    Brass, wood, leather

    and canvas are the only way for me. I love the look of older objects, and one day my home will look like some weird splice of modern and classic decorative style.

    Aviators instead of polarized shades.

    Fedora instead of SnapBack cap. Suit jacket instead of dope t-shirt. Trousers instead of low *** jeans. Black boots instead of shiny new Jordans. And a messenger bag just to top it all off. Old school instead of new...yeah, that's how I roll.

    Have you ever taken notice

    as to how old-fashioned items have so much more soul than their modern-day brethren? They have more weight & substance to them... and not just in terms of mass. They possess a far more "real" feel, as though you are touching an item which has EARNED its place in the world. Of...

    They are sure from another era when character and charm counted.The older they are the better they look. No wonder they are of value.

    My List

    Perhaps it is nostalgia or a longing for a link to our past. Maybe it's admiration of a craft, skill, fashion, or mindset that triggers it in us. We no longer want the shiny new mass-produced "next big thing" but get excited when we see the "I haven't seen one of...

    Serious!

    I am a serious History Buff. Sometimes I wish I was born in the 20s just to see how life was back then. I love to collect very old books and things like that. Nothing better than walking around a museum full of things from the past.

    I Love When Stuff Was Made For Quality And You Kept It For Generations

    I love how the older things were kept and how well taken care of they were. When you pass something down from generation to generation it's sentimental it has meaning and most older things were not like today and merely decorative they had purpose and function things were not...
