I have always been somewhat fascinated with objects from the past. I remember going to my grandparents’ house as a child and discovering treasures that harkened to a time that seemed very long gone… whether it be a salt & pepper shaker set, old Coke bottles, or a collection of spoons… all those things spoke to the culture and setting in which they were made, sold and bought… and more than all that… those objects told me something about the history of my grandparents.
Well, I’m certainly not the only one interested in all-things “retro and vintage” – (admittedly two of the most over-used words in our modern culture). So, the people over at Retro Thing collect stories of people who have discovered interesting pop cultural artifacts and describe their usefulness or intention. There are some very cool anecdotes and objects of all kinds… so if you’re interested in those sorts of things… I encourage you to check it out.
