We finally did it! Vintages now has a Facebook page ... another way to follow what's happening at Los Gatos' best gift, craft and antique shop. Check it out ... follow us ... like us.

2016 Calendars are IN!

Our selection of vintage image calendars has arrived. Come and get 'em while they last. This year we not only have the desk calendars that we have had in the past, but a selection of wonderful wall calendars as well. 

Found Image Press selects different images for each year ... so there are not duplicates. Old stand-bys like Cycling, San Francisco, Santa Cruz and Paris are in the mix ... but so are nests, moons, fairies and typography. Desk calendars are $12.95 each ... wall calendars are $21.95.

Children's Activity Magazines from the 1940s

We picked up about thirty copies of this wonderful magazine ... Children's Activities for Home and School ... dated 1946, 1947 and 1948. Wouldn't it be marvelous if kids were doing things with their hands and minds like this, instead of playing with their mobile devices. Don't get me wrong, these modern gadgets are wonderful. We carry our iPhones with us whenever we are away from home. But these activities are pretty cool!

I chose to photograph a bunch from the October issues ... since this is October and Halloween is fast approaching. We have these vintage magazines available at $8.00 each ... while they last.

Photos of Vintages

A month ago David Goni, a local student, came by and asked if he could take some photos of our shop for a class project. We said "sure." Here are the ones he did. Pretty good stuff! Thanks David.

Journals ... Notepads ... Jot it Down!

I have been a note-taker since high school. I used my notebook for taking class notes as well as writing down homework assignments. In college I continued the practice, adding notes on projects as well. When I got into the workforce I found this notebook thing to be quite helpful ... keeping track of tasks, meeting notes and "to do" lists. It was all re-enforced by the company's requirement to maintain a documented research notebook in addition to my personal book.

While I continue the practice of keeping notes and "to do" lists, I have never kept a personal journal or diary ... but I know plenty of folks who do. Journals and notepads are a steady seller for us and we just added a few new styles to our selection. These are available in our shop ... and soon I will be adding them to our shopping site.
