Memorial Day is almost here!  Can you believe it?!  We celebrate it as a happy time, as the unofficial kick-off to summer.  Backyard barbecues and beautiful, balmy beaches (great use of alliteration! Lol).  But it’s important to remember the true meaning of Memorial Day which, this year, is May 29th. Our Shop will be closed on that Monday in observance. […]

It’s not too late! Don’t forget Mother’s Day is this Sunday! Mother’s Day has been recognized and celebrated as a national holiday since 1914. But the first Mother’s Day was conceived of by Anna Jarvis as a day of personal celebration between mothers and families. Ms. Jarvis wanted to honor her mother, who had been an activist during the Civil […]

Cinco de Mayo!  What a fun time!! Commemorates the anniversary of Mexico’s victory over the French on May 5, 1862!  More popular a celebration in the U.S. than Mexico, it has become associated with the celebration of Mexican American culture. Celebrations first started in the U.S. in 1863 in California and have grown incredibly. I first met my husband at […]

Happy Earth Day! Many forget that the goal of the original Earth Day was simple – to utilize the energy of student anti-war protests 0f the late 60s and early 70s to create a public consciousness about air and water pollution.  Twenty million Americans – 10% of the U.S. population at the time – were inspired on that day!  A […]

Happy Easter and Happy Passover to all our friends and family! I was surprised when recently someone asked me if we ever get antiques or vintage items in the Shop.  So I looked up the definitions. Antiques must be aged 100 years or more to be considered genuinely antique, vintage items have no set age. Interestingly enough, antique cars are […]

Spring has sprung! The daffodils, forsythia and crocuses don’t lie. Spring and Easter conjure up images of rabbits. Why is that so? The rabbit is considered a symbol of fertility and new life. Harkening back to ancient times, the pagan festival of Eostre celebrated the goddess of fertility whose animal was a bunny. Over time, that has evolved and grown. […]

On Ash Wednesday, a church’s priest or pastor spreads ashes on congregants’ foreheads in the shape of a cross. The ashes are made from […]
