May is just around the corner!!!

Can you believe next week it will already be May? Our 30th Annual Geranium Festival will soon be here! We've been preparing, cleaning and gathering our goodies ~ and even holding back a few treasures just for that special day. Cindy and I both, and all of our sweet dealers, hope you will be able to be with us that day.

Call a friend, mark your calendars

Saturday, May 19th from 9:00 till 5:00.

As you know, we add new items every single week. We'd love to see you and have you take a look at all the things we've added to the store this week.

Thank you all for being the loyal, wonderful customers that you are!!

I just had to share these photos with you . . . an elderly man came into the store today with his daughter. He was sporting a spiffy hat and was really very friendly. I stepped outside to check the mail and look at what I saw when I did! How amazing is this old car?

I came back into the store and told him that I loved his car, and he was curious as to how I knew it was his. I just told him that I knew with a hat like he was wearing he had to be driver of that wonderful old car. He told me what it was but of course I can't remember!

He asked me if he could leave his car parked in front of the store as he and his daughter strolled around McDonough. I said of course he could! What better place for it to be parked than in front of an antique store . . . and while he was gone I had to take pictures, right?

Nostalgia . . .

: a wistful or excessively sentimental yearning for return to
or of some past period;

For all antique lovers, that feeling is what drives us, true? Even if we didn't actually live in that time period, we still appreciate the items that were used back then.

For Cindy and I both, the images used on labels, books and even the fonts that were used on the covers of books, sheet music and other printed items evoke a feeling of a sweeter, gentler time. When things in this world weren't moving quite so fast, people rocked on their porches in the evenings watching children chasing lightning bugs, or walked to the dime store where the clerk knew you by name or even took the time to sit down and write a letter to a dear friend.

Nostalgia is what drives us as antique lovers, always looking for that special something to remind us of times past.
