We’re drawn to a certain kind of person here, the ones looking for something simpler - those who nerd out on details- stuff like blue-collar tokens that would never be saved. The little hotel soaps, souvenir decals- the throwaways.
It’s the details that we take for granted... until you find yourself 60 yrs later realizing that everything around you is now “new & improved.” There will always be a reason to replace the old ways of doing things: modern, cheaper, faster.
So when you come across a vintage fold-over tin lapel pin, think of the family company that made these back in the day – a business that provided enough to support their families for generations.
You’ll find cheaper, more durable pins anywhere. The only redeeming quality a few kindred spirits may find in ours is that they’re reminiscent of a time and place we can’t go back to. It makes us appreciate how far we’ve come, and how sometimes the best way to get perspective is to take a step back.
So here’s to stepping back 60 years.
