I love things with a good story attached or a intriguing history. These items are usually OLD, but lately I'm noticing that I'm feeling a bit hipper because my OLD stuff I love is now becoming "Vintage" or "Retro". Unfortunately, these new cool labels also increases the price of my fabulous old stuff. Although, it bodes well for my children when I'm vintage and ready to part with my stuff. If they don't love it, well they can make a buck off it, but if they DO love it they will be even richer and a bit "cooler" I suspect.
Here are two of my OLD obsessions... I love glove molds (my husband hates them and many of my friends find them creepy) and I love photographing old cars. They look like people that should not be ignored and with the right photographer have a fabulous history to tell us all if we just pay attention.
