What are you looking forward to in 2021?

  I don't have to tell you because you've lived through it too. 2020 was a crazy year, but now that we are in 2021 I'm ready to start looking forward to things to do this year. Last January Michelle and I planned for all kinds of outdoor shows including a great ephemera show in the spring. But of course everything was put on hold. So now what? Well, we are assuming there may not be outdoor vintage shows this spring, but by summer we think we'll start to see a few pop up. The other thing that happened in 2020 was we had our best sales year yet. You read right, it was our busiest year. The changes we made in 2019 really paid off. We started carrying a wider variety of hard to find items, got more organized, did a lot more videos, and opened up our shop to more international orders. The result was tons more orders and also racked up more than 1000 five star reviews!  Our planning last January taught us that you never know what's in store.  So we're looking forward
