We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- This is not so much an email about one item as it is a question about a certain item. When I was a small child, I would go in the kitchen of my grandmothers, we called her "Big Mama" but she wasn't but 5'6". On a shelf over the sink was a small bottle. The bottle had one of those bulb squeezers on it connected to a tube that went inside of it. My grandmother had somewhat of an operatic voice and would spray her throat once in a while with this "stuff" in the bottle. No one, to this day knows what was generally used in these bottles, no one in my family anyway? Since about 50 years ago we didn't have the things we do now on the market, it bothers me trying to figure out what might have been in the spray bottle, that would have been used on ones throat? If anyone has any ideas at all I would love to hear from you? Please contact me at Dyneau@aol.com Dyan -- Another Story -- My Great aunt's sister-in-law passed away at the age of 92. She married late in life, and had no children. She was always a part of our family festivities and I spent many hours visiting her, and enjoying her company, I didn't realize until I was about 30 years old, that we were not really related. Her only living relative, her nephew, had an auction sale of all her things and her parent's things because she had taken care of them, and lived in their house. I was upset because the dressers were filled with personal papers and family photos and documents! Some of the relatives asked if they could have the documents and pictures, and the nephew said "Sure" so it was a scramble to find everything that we could before the auction. The auction was heart breaking, the auctioneer said, just pick out a box and bid on it-sometimes just getting a $1 for a choice box on the trailer. I had just about given up on the whole auction when I realized that a painting of aunty was going up for bids! I started to bid, while looking around to see who was bidding against me, (I had been bidding against my mother for another item and didn't want to repeat that mistake again). I didn't see who it was, so I kept bidding. I got the painting, and I thought I had gotten a million dollars. She had shown it to me a while back and told me the story about her being a nursing student and taking such good care of one of her patients, that he wanted to give her some money. She informed him that they couldn't do such things, and that she was just doing her job. He still wanted to do something for her, so he painted this portrait as a graduation gift. It had been sitting in a closet for over 70 years! As I was taking my treasure to the car, one of her friends came up to me and told me she had been bidding against me for it-I felt a little bad, and offered to share it with her, she told me that she was sure the right person got the picture by the look of joy on my face. She then directed me to a lady who had been bidding on it too. They wanted to put up a hall of fame in the small town hospital where she had worked for 50 years and had become a legend in her own time. I told them that the painting needed a good frame, and that I would LEND it to them for a while. Right now, I am enjoying the painting for myself. Sonja M. -- Another Story -- Pearls - The "tooth" test We had quite a few folks ask about the pearl "tooth" test, in response to a story sent in by a reader in our last issue. People wanted to know how it worked. One very simple way of finding out if pearls are real is putting them against your teeth, rubbing them along the teeth gently. If the pearls feel "sandy" or gritty and hard like sand, they are real. If they feel smooth or slippery and somewhat soft, they are simulated. If you are not sure, ask a jeweler. -- Tell us a story about an unusual or odd antique or collectible that you own. Where did it come from and what makes it so unusual.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Hidden Treasure. I am a faithful reader of your newsletter and have always thought of sending in the story of my best find. Today is the day. I have been a flea marketer more years than I care to remember. Auctions have always been a great way to increase my inventory with the least expense, therefore, I have been "hooked" on them for years. At our local auction there are always antique jewelry dealers who always seem to outbid me and get the best deals. After several attempts to buy some decent jewelry, I gave up and settled on a small box of what one dealer defined as junk. My bid was $8.00. After the auction, I dumped the box on the kitchen table and started sorting through it. To my amazement, there was a very old ring in the pile that was very dirty. I cleaned it and examined it closely. It turned out to be a diamond and sapphire set in 14K white gold from the 1930s-appraised value $843.00. I hope that dealer shows me more junk boxes, I'll be sure to buy them. P.S. The ring has been given to my oldest daughter in appreciation for all the help she has given me over the years. Dianne H. -- Another Story -- Uncle Charlie When my great aunt who had never had children of her own, passed away, she left her estate to my mother. We divided her things with other nieces and nephews. The most sought after items were pictures of their ancestors. The house was an old farm house with the "Dog-trot" hall down the middle and had been built by my Greatgrandpa. It still had all those family pictures in oval frames with the concave glass. Some relatives were out of state so we just left theirs hanging in the house until we had the time to clear it out properly. In the meantime a family came through the comminity who needed a place to stay, so my mother being the kind hearted person she was told them they could stay there. Needless to say when they walked, so did a lot of things from the house. Quite a few years later my sister-in-law from the other side of the family was doing a craft project and wanted me to see what she had found in one of the "junk shops" in our town for her project. When she pulled her box out from under the bed where she had her things stored, low and behold there was "Uncle Charlie" staring back at me. I immediately called my Mother who in turn informed Uncle Charlie's children of my find. Uncle Charlie had died as a very young man leaving 4 young sons and a daughter. The son from Colorado was the first to visit, so Uncle Charlie went home with his own son. He now is with one of his grandaughters, and others in his family have had the picture copied...Sharon -- Tell us a story about an unusual or odd antique or collectible that you own.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- The "Pearls" I have enjoyed the hidden finds stories very much and figure it is time to share mine. My wife and I had moved back to Maine and were going to visit old friends in the country. We managed to get behind a logging truck that was going very slow so when my wife spied a yard sale we pulled in to give the truck time to get on up the road. I only had $3 on me in cash so I limited my purchases to a couple pieces of jewelry. One was a silver pin and the other a strand of broken pearls. The lady said I would have to restring them but as they had a 14K clasp I figured they were worth the $2 she was asking for them. When we arrived at my friend's home she asked me how to know real pearls from the simulated ones I had just bought. I told her about rubbing a pearl against your tooth and showed her how. To my surprise, the ones I had bought were real! I had them restrung and gave them to my wife. The gentleman that restrung them said they were worth $600. This year we passed them on to our granddaughter for her high school graduation. Bob -- Tell us a story about an unusual or odd antique or collectible that you own.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Turtle For several years I've had a small collection of books from around the 1900's. They were given to me by my cousin who purchased an old house in upstate Pennsylvania. In the house were many shelves of old books left there by the previous owner. I picked a few out, took them home and set them on a shelf just to decorate. After sitting on the same shelf for about six years I decided to look them over. Inside one of the books I found an old mini calender. The date on the calender was 1895. It was clear with a swirly design of browns and yellows running through it. It looked to me like it was made out of some sort of plastic. Not knowing, I put it on E-bay and described it as a calender made of some sort of old plastic, thinking maybe I could get 2 or 3 dollars for it. Luckily a friend who decided to see if I had anything for sale saw it and immediately contacted me. My friend said "They didn't make plastic in 1895!". "What you have there is real tortoiseshell" I took the calender off e-bay right away. I was stunned to find out later that the tortoiseshell calender is worth about $100.00 or more. I also learned that some species of tortoise are on the endangered list and that items made from them should not be sold legally. " It just goes to show you, Sometime when you least expect it you might be looking at a real treasure without even knowing it. Always do your research! --Another Story-- Hand me down Have been receiving your newsletter and really do enjoy the stories. I have one that might be of some interest. As a child I always loved mom's jewelry box and all the bright pieces that she would let me try on. There was always one that held my total fascination and it had belonged to my great grandmother Burgess. All of the pictures of her were of a little tiny granny with long black dress and an apron over it. She wore her hair in a little bun and looked so sweet. So the necklace belonging to her was so out of character. It was a choker of sorts, with beautiful black cut glass with shiny diamonds in the middle and a little drop glass stone in the very center. What every little girl needed to be a princess. I wore it many times, and then when I got older my mom gave it to me with the story that granny B. had worn it one time to a dance and then put it away. Went to my granny, then to my mom and then to me. I am 56 yrs old and still have it. The best part occurred a few years ago when I went to bring my granny to live with me and as we sorted out some things to pack a bright and shiny bracelet fell out of a slip. When I picked it up to my amazement it was identical to the necklace. Granny told me that there used to be a necklace and that they thought it had been lost or stolen, and she was quite sad about it. I happily told her that I had the necklace in my possession and they could be put together again if that was her wish. They are both in my safe keeping, to be passed onto my granddaughter Katie who is named for me and my mother. I have written all of the story down and put it with the pieces so that she can share it someday with her own child. It was considered to be costume jewelry but it has turned out to be a legacy of a Cherokee Indian granny who had her one special piece of jewelry and left a life-time of love and memories for me and mine.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Letters About five months ago I purchased 150 first day covers from the local auction. They were addressed to numerous people at different Towns and Cities around the U.S.A and Canada. I attended the flea market several times and sold about 90 of them. My last visit, due to the market closing, I was approached by a lady who said she was from out of town and visiting an old friend who collected stamps and in particular, stamps with flowers on them. We went through the first day covers and she found one she liked and then she gasped, "I cant believe what I am seeing " she said "The address on this envelope is the address of the friend I am going to see". There were in fact three covers with that address on and she bought the three. The person who had collected some of the first day covers had lived at that address some 20 years ago. Was that coincidence or fate, who knows ??. Mike B. --Another Story-- Sally When I was a small boy, we lived with my grandmother until I was 10-years-old. On Saturday nights, when my parents would have their night out, my grandmother, whose name was Sally, used to have our "party night." We would listen to the radio - Sergeant Preston, Gang Busters, The Lone Ranger, etc. Then she would read to me from a collection of fairy tales she had. One night, I was about four at the time, I climbed under her bed and noticed this odd shaped box. I pulled it out and asked her what it was. It was her guitar that she used to play before she was married. I asked her to show me, so she got it out, tuned it up, and played me a song. The guitar and the music she made on it, became part of our Saturday night entertainment from that point on. It turns out, my grandmother was a guitar player back in the days when women didn't do such things! When she died the guitar came to rest for years in my parent's attic. I had gone off to college and eventually became a musician. On a trip home, I came upon the guitar and asked if I could have it. I took it to a repair shop to have it set up, and it turns out the guitar - a 1910 double arched Gibson, is extremely rare and valuable, possibly handmade by Mr. Gibson himself! I have cherished that guitar for many years now and have even recorded with it. I've been offered a lot of money for it, but some things are truly priceless. Every time I pull it from its musty-smelling case, and begin to play, I am transported back to those Saturday nights we spent together. A few years ago, I was burglarized and the thieves made off with over $10,000 in musical equipment. But "Sally" (what I call the guitar) was sitting out on a stand in plain view, and they never touched it. Coincidence? Irish luck? Or was it my grandmother looking over it? On my left arm is a tattoo of the guitar with the word "Sally" inscribed across it. Invariably, people will ask who's Sally? When I tell them it was my grandmother and relate the story of the guitar, they seem to sense that love, symbolized by this guitar, can never be bought nor sold. ....Kelly D. -- Another Story -- Ways to Kill I liked the story about the magician who searches antique stores for "ways to murder people" (collectors Newsletter #238), and it takes the store owner a while to show him the guns, knives, etc. When my mom passed away, I was looking under a permanently stationed drawer in her mobile home to find straight razors, brass knuckles, knives, etc. either hidden there by her away from my brother, who was schizophrenic and prone to bazaar behavior patterns, or by him for when he thought he would need them. Either way they were hidden in my sock drawer until I figured out how to dispose of them and my granddaughter found them while borrowing some socks and politely asked me why I kept weapons in my drawers. Thanks for the chuckle! Linda. -- Comments, thoughts? Post them online at: http://www.auctionbytes.com/forum/phpBB/viewforum.php?forum=16&31 We collect interesting stories about collecting.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Mom's Things The stories of loved ones and their possessions prompted me to write. I believe the spirit of the owner lives on in their possessions, so be careful what you do with those items! Your loved ones are watching! My sister and I inherited many of our mother's favorite china and glass antiques after she passed away. Last summer I had one of my mom's favorite china plates displayed on a plate stand on a table in my foyer. The front door was open and the wind knocked the plate off the table to the hardwood floor. Amazingly, the plate didn't break or even get chipped. I knew mom had to be watching over that plate. Last week mom was watching once again. On my coffee table I have a 3 piece set of cranberry glass - two tall vases and a matching rose bowl that belonged to mom. I somehow managed to knock one of the delicate, thin vases over. It crashed onto the coffee table like a falling tree! Once again, it didn't break or even chip. Mom's spirit to the rescue again. Today... yep, you guessed it - I have a lovely opalescent perfume bottle with doves on the stopper that I bought my mom years ago. It sits on a china tray on my dresser. The windows were open and the wind knocked the perfume bottle over onto the china tray. It hit so hard I heard it in another room. Yet again, it didn't break. I couldn't believe it!! Mom definitely is trying hard to keep her beloved antiques from breaking. My sister and I sell on-line and we've been weeding our collections. Several weeks ago I sold a piece of my mom's glass to a woman who told me she had over 400 pieces of this particular glass but this piece was the finest and most beautiful she'd ever bought. She signed her name to the email... MARY. That was our mother's name. Rather spooky!! Now the funny part - my sister sold a Limoges cake plate that belonged to our mom (we have so many things we just can't keep all of them) and she packed the dish as she always does with lots of packing peanuts and bubble wrap in a priority box. The dish arrived.....broken. The new owner's name was NOT Mary. Think mom was trying to tell her something? We are convinced mom is at work here! What do you think?...Judy C. --Another Story-- The Table When I was growing up in the 50's, my mother, sister, and I, lived in Mason City, Iowa with my Grandmother Caldwell. She had a tiny house where she had lived since her marriage, without more than the bare necessities. In the living room there was one piece that even as a child I thought very beautiful, a round, pedestal lamp table made out of walnut. I did not even know until decades later that it was a tilt-top tea table, I only admired it. It had been made for her in the midst of the Depression by a teenager whom she had befriended. He worked as a helper with my Grandfather, as a bread deliveryman. My Grandfather would often bring him home to supper as he was motherless and his father an alchohalic (or so the story goes). My Grandmother would mend his clothes and generally make him welcome, even when she was not sure how the mortgage would be paid that month and she had three children of her own to feed. He must have been grateful because he made this little table in shop class and gave it to her where it had the place of honor for fifty years until her death at age eighty. I lived at a distance, so had to return home quickly after her funeral. Nothing so surely brought the fact of her death and absence so bitterly home, as loading this little table into the car for the trip home. I love this simple little table and I believe that my love of Queen Anne furniture began with it. But I love more what it says about my Grandmother and her character and kindness. Today, it also has the place of honor in my living room. Yet, that day, or any day after, I would have cheerfully chopped it into kindling for a little more time with her.

We want to hear any interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Hidden Treasure For many years I "collected" old books. At one time in had become quite an addiction. I answered an ad in our local newspaper for a set of books which I had been looking for. When I went to purchase the book set I learned that the entire contents of the house were going to be sold by way of an estate sale. There was a whole wall of shelves filled with books! I asked the woman in charge if she would give me a price on buying all of the books. She declined to do so saying that the estate sale was going to be for a full week and they would probably do well with the books. She had even had an appraiser come in to price each book. I did purchase a small table while I was there and made arrangements to return on the last day of the sale to pick it up. When I returned to pick up the table, the lady asked if I was still interested in the "wall of books". I told her I did not think so as they had been picked over for a week and most of the better ones were probably gone. However, she made me an offer I could not refuse, everything on the wall of shelves for fifty dollars. It took me two trips in a small pick-up to bring the boxes home. The were left in a spare room for about six months before I took the time to sort through them. Box by box, book by book, some old newspapers, a small box of dress patterns, etc. I opened the box of dress patterns and pulled some out to see if they might be real old, they were not so I sat them aside to take to the goodwill store along with some of the books. About ten minutes later something flashed through my mind, I remembered the lady from the estate sale had told me the estate had belonged to a single man who had never been married. Why, I wondered would a single man have had a box of dress patterns mixed in with his books and newspapers? I retrieved the patterns and started looking a little closer. The dress patterns in the bottom of the box were shaped a little different from all the others. Upon unfolding the last four or five patterns I found odd twenty and ten dollar bills totaling over 2,400.00 dollars! This box had been overlooked by an appraiser, hundreds of people looking at the books for a week and now, almost thrown out. What made me take a second look? I thing the old gentleman wanted me to find his hidden treasure before it was lost forever! *** How about you? Tell us your story of a hidden treasure that you found.

Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- Another Story -- I was just reading about the finding of money in a ratty bag and a cook book. One day I brought some items home from my sister's house. She had recently passed on. My husband built shelves for these items. Things such as, soap liquid, furniture polish and etc, were now all carefully shelved. One day about a year later I was looking for a soap pad and remembered the box of my sister's stuff down stairs on the shelves. Well there was one left and I started to throw the box away, when I looked in it and found a bundle of something wound up at the bottom of the box. I pulled in out and there was a bundle $100's and twenties. It all added up to $750. I guess she guided me to it. I just wonder if I threw a lot more out. Oh well maybe someone found it. I hope so. *****If you have an interesting story about found money, please send it to newsletter@tias.com -- Another Story -- On occasion, I babysit for my 3 and 5 year old nieces~Faith and Ryenn.

I showed them first how to put the key in and then open and close the lock. My 3 year old, Faith, was the first to have a go at it. She finally got the key in and was working very hard to get the lock open.

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- It wanted to come home I had inherited a large dresser, called a tallboy, with beautiful lines, cedar-lined locking drawers and a sliding jewelry tray inside another drawer, all-in-all, a very special piece to me. I was visiting a friend who had purchased a very large antique buffet-type piece of furniture at auction and found that she couldn't use it. I told her I already had furniture wall-to-wall in my house but I'd look at it. As soon as I saw it, I KNEW I had to have it -- the style was exactly the same as the tallboy. Believe it or not, my key fits both pieces of furniture....Phyllis -- Another Story -- Fox Holes Back in the 80's I was in the Army and stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. We spent alot of time out in "the field" on maneuvers. We also spent alot of time digging fox holes and when there was nothing more important to do we "improved" our foxholes making them bigger and better. Everytime we moved to a new location everyone had to dig a new personal foxhole. One day upon "improving" a foxhole going deeper and wider I hit something hard. This was unusual since if I remember right they call that area something like the sand hills. I eased up on the shoveling and turned into a temporary archeologist. What I had found was an old "Canada Dry Spur" bottle. After further exploration in the same vicinity I ended up with two "Canada Dry Spur " bottles and one "Joe Louis Punch" bottle completely intact. Of course they were empty. After years and years of randomly trying to get some info about them finally the internet came along and I purchased a computer. It still was not easy researching these bottles, especially the value. I have finally found and concluded that they are not really very valuable but I still have them, never-the-less, now displayed in my office at work....Jim D. -- Comments, thoughts?

About 5 years ago I worked at a resale consignment shop. The owner didn't deal much in vintage or antique items, but occasionally he would take some of the older pieces to sell and many times it was me who would purchase them, as I have that love for "old" things. One day when I arrived at work, I found that someone had consigned an antique red wicker and iron sleigh. This was a small sleigh, surely made for a child; I'm sure it was to be pulled by hand, as you would with a child's sled nowadays. It wasn't priced yet but I knew that it was going home with me. It was one of those times where you really didn't care what the price was, you just had to have it! My father had given me a beautiful doll a few years before, a very unusual gift to come from him, and I decided that I had to have this sleigh to put my beautiful Victorian doll in. The doll was very special to me because my father had taken the time to pick it out and I thought it very sweet coming from a man who never in his life had shopped for anything "girlie". At the time, he said it was so I'd have a "baby girl", since we had 3 sons and weren't about to try again for a girl! The owner of the shop was not at work yet, so when lunch time came around and I had to leave for awhile, I told my co-worker to tell the owner that I wanted to purchase the sleigh so not to sell it to anyone else. When I returned from lunch, I discovered that the sleigh was gone, having been sold while I was away. I learned that as soon as the owner of the store had arrived, he sent my co-worker to lunch and he had forgotten to pass on the message. Someone came in the shop and was interested in the sleigh and the owner sold it. Needless to say, I was heartbroken! The sleigh would have been just the perfect display piece for my vintage style doll. I continued my search, but couldn't find anything that I liked, in which to display the doll; nothing did it justice. I wanted something very special because the doll was very special to me. About two years later, while I was at work, I was shocked to see the same sleigh being carried into the shop by one of my co-workers! They had gone to a woman's home to pick up furniture and other items because she was moving across country and was consigning most of her things with the shop, rather than move them. I have to tell you that the sleigh never touched the floor! It was in the trunk of my car within 2 minutes! My dad passed away about 3 weeks later, and I know that somehow he had a hand, along with the "powers that be" in getting that sleigh back where it belonged! Never doubt the power of love! -- Comments, thoughts? Post them online at: http://www.auctionbytes.com/forum/phpBB/viewforum.php?forum=16&31 We collect interesting stories about collecting.

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Parking Meters Decades ago, my husband and I took off with our four small children for a trip to Padre Island--our first real vacation trip. While at the beach, way up on the National Seashore, I took off my engagement ring, a beautiful 1-carat emerald-cut diamond solitaire, and put it in my billfold so it wouldn't get lost while digging moats for our sand castles. I loved this ring, just as I loved my beautiful mother-in-law who had, I later learned, been more than instrumental in seeing that her rather tightfisted son present me with an "appropriate" stone. Actually, I'm not really the big diamond type. People were always asking me if it were really "real"! And following the first prideful flush of the engaged-to-be-married state--when the fingernails on my left hand grew out to an absolutely socially acceptable length--I had somehow developed a bad, bad habit of frequently taking my ring off--to do dishes, to type, to play the piano, to knead the dough for homemade bread. Taking it off to help the children dig in the sand seemed an entirely natural thing to do. Sure, I'd lost it before, but it was always found somewhere in the house, because somewhere in the house is where I always seemed to be, too. But I had pitched a fit to go to a beach, to have the children see the ocean before they got too old to appreciate it! Children give parents some great excuses to cut loose and have fun! So there we were, hundreds of miles from home, happily sifting sand, with no notion of the emotional horror and guilt and regret ahead. We only had time and money for two nights on Padre and barely got back to the motel before check-out time so we could pack up and head home to Oklahoma. That's when I realized I'd left my billfold on the beach. Talk about distraught! We arranged for a late check-out and rushed back to "our" deserted part of the beach, but, of course, the billfold wasn't there. Right after we left the parking area, we noticed a jeep pulling up behind us and honking repeatedly, but my husband, not the most trusting tourist in the world, gave our old Ford the gas and sped on. Back at the motel, I tearfully called the police who said to call the sheriff's office in Brownsville and a clerk there took my contact information with obvious reluctance and said, in essence, so sorry, not a lot they could hope to do about it. We had almost finished loading up the cooler, the diaper bag, the stuffed animals and toys, all the paraphrenalia that goes with traveling with a baby and three pre-schoolers, when the phone rang in our motel room. "Is this Elizabeth ...?" For a minute, I was confused because I never used my first name except for things like driver's licenses and such. "Did you lose something?" I started sobbing (again) and said, "Oh, please, just keep the money [probably all of $5, counting change], keep the billfold, but please, please, do you have my ring--we'll pay you..." The man on the line, a Mr. Magee, sort of chuckled and said, "Oh, that won't be necessary." Later, I found out why! He gave us directions to his home where we could retrieve my carelessly lost treasure. We drove to the other side of the island and pulled up at the designated address--and there was the grandest waterfront home I'd ever seen, with a yacht or two moored out front. Mr. Magee told us he had tried to follow us in his jeep and then had systematically started calling every hotel and motel in the area to see if they had someone registered with the name found in the billfold. Bingo! This wealthy retired businessman chatted with us quite a bit. I kept telling him how grateful I was--for his honesty and for the fact that he was a Mr. Magee and not a Mr. Magoo! I promised one and all I'd be more careful with my ring--and I have been, ever since. Before leaving, this kind man gave me a poem he had written. I carried it folded in my various billfolds over the years, just to remind me how honest and wonderful people can be, and also--this could be called The Rest of the Story-- to remind me not to get too disgruntled whenever I forgot to feed the meter and ended up with an overdue parking fine. You see, the man who found and returned my beautiful ring to me was another Okie, Mr. Carl C. Magee--and he had made his fortune by inventing the parking meter! -- Comments, thoughts?

Send them to newsletter@tias.com and we may publish it here . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- I have two stories about lost rings ... Story One: When Step dad died, my Mother gave me the first ring he gave her. It was a lovely large diamond, and when I had it cleaned, I was told it was very rare and appraised for over $5,000 (in 1975). I wore it everyday and often took it off to when my hands got wet and put it on a counter or in my pocket. This led to a "Ring search" every once in a while. One day it was missing, but was never found. Five years later, we were moving and my husband went under the crawl space to get the dryer vent loose. He found a pile of soot and kind of felt through it and got over #20 in change and bills and a couple of small toys. He dragged the vent under the house and took it to the garbage, to shake it out. As he shook he saw something shiny fall into the can and pulled out my diamond ring! It had melted in a week spot and lodged on one of the rings in the vent for five years! I no longer put rings in pockets or shelves. Story Two: One summer, my husband and younger brother worked at a summer camp. This was right after his brother had graduated. They where boating and swimming and helping build a new deck out on the lake, when Steve (brother) noticed his new class ring was missing. They dived and looked each day after, but the sediment was thick and kids were mucking about swimming and playing. So it was given up for lost. Every year after, they would go fishing at that same lake, even after we all were married. Once summer, the owner drained the lake to restock the fish in it. Steve got a phone call to see what they found of his ... yep! They found his ring in the mud 15 years later! Moral: So, never give up on lost items ... they may turn up someday! Diane P. --Another Story-- As an immigrant from Italy and the mother of 13 children, my great grand mom Rosa didn’t have very many “treasures”, so to speak. But one of the things she did have, was a platinum ring with a small diamond in it, like a cocktail ring. I remember her as a child, lovingly brushing my long hair as we sat in the sun in the yard, the ring glinting in the sun and being fascinated. Well, after many years of living a good and happy life, my Great grand mom passed away. No one to call me her “little bambino” anymore. The estate went to the youngest “child” (the only one not married) and he very quickly disposed of the estate before anyone had a chance to request a personal remembrance. My mother was heartbroken. Unbeknownst to us, her mother (my grand mom) had the ring at her house (great grand mom sometimes stayed at my grandmothers) and my mother found the ring after her mother passed. A few years went by, and one day my mother lost the ring in the parking lot at her job. She was devastated since this was one of the few things of Great Grand mom’s that she had. She looked around the lot everyday, but to no avail. Finally, after about 6 months, my mother noticed something shiny. Lo and behold, it was the ring! It had been run over and was in bad shape, but she had the ring back. She tried everywhere, but no one wanted to attempt to fix it. It wasn’t worth their time. My mother didn’t care though, she had Grand mom Rose’s ring back. Eventually the ring came to me when my mother passed away. I had a wonderful jeweler who was actually able to fix it and it looks as good as new. Someday, this remembrance will go to one of my daughters. They never met their Great Great Grand mom, but will always have a great story to pass to their children. Grand mom Rose wants this ring to stay in the family. -- Comments, thoughts?

She named a Sat for her brother and sisters to gather to claim anything that they would desire from the estate. This Saturday arrived and all gathered, but few took anything of any real value, feeling that they really did not want all that old stuff. As the years passed on occasion she would be asked by one family member or the other about acquiring one of the many things that were still in the house. She always refused, stating that everyone had had their chance. At the age of 98 this Aunt died and the contents of her three homes were gathered for a two day auction. My father not being a sentimental man did not make me aware of the auction and I lost any chance of acquiring any of the many pieces of furniture from the estate. After many years I have returned to the small town where our family started and have started a small antique business. One day a family approached me about liquidating their mothers estate, knowing that this had been a fairly prominant family i was honored to be asked and eager to find out what was in that house. A date was set and i arrived. Upon arriving at the home my first impression of the furniture was one of sadness because the wonderful eastlake parlor furniture was so similar to what had been in my Great Grandparents home, a deal was struck and the truck loaded and i was off to clean and attempt to price these wonderful pieces. Two days later i received a call from the daughter of the family informing me that they had found a folder of information that might be helpful in determining value on many of the items. One of the receipts in the folder was a auction receipt for the purchase of one 9 piece eastlake parlor suite from the estate of my Great Aunt. I was so overwhelmed that i informed the daughter of my connection to the furniture and suggested that I bring in someone else to price that particular suite, since it was clear to me that i would be purchasing it for myself. Now the suite is in my living room, on one side of the sofa is my Great Grandparents portrait and on the other is a wonderful photograph of the couple who had acquired the suite and kept it so lovingly for so many years. I am sure that someday the telling of the way it returned will mean as much to my nieces as the suite does maybe more. Tommy M. -- Another story -- Rubber Tree Back in the early '80s I rented out my house in Florida while I took a job in Maryland. One job led to another and it was almost ten years before I came home. Meanwhile, a sprig of a rubber plant I'd planted in the front yard had grown huge, towering over the house. It gave a lot of shade, but a few years later I realized it had to go. It had crushed the gutter and buckled the eave, the roots were lifting up the porch and there was a problem with mold and mildew. I had it cut down and the stump ground out. One afternoon several months later I was working in the flower bed I'd planted where the tree had been when a friend stopped by for a visit. She'd been one of my first tenants while I was living up north. She'd moved out of town, so I rarely saw her anymore. She sat on the porch and we chatted while I grubbed away in the flower bed. My trowel turned up a crusty lump and I almost threw it on the weed pile, but there was a glint of metal, so I tossed it in the watering can. I made a remark to her about "buried treasure" and said it looked like an earring or something. She sighed and told me about a ring she'd lost years before. Her grandmother had given it to her. It had a silver filigree band and a black onyx stone with a small diamond in it. While she was talking, I pulled the "lump" out of the watering can -- it was a silver filigree ring, with a black onyx stone and small diamond! The back of the band had split and it was squashed a little flat, but she had it repaired and still wears it today. Lynn H. -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- In the last issue a reader sent us a story about their "Outhouse finds" another reader responded with this note... Concerning the items found in the outhouse, but the owner didn't want to dig in the hole. An archaeologist friend of mine says that an old outhouse hole is a great place to search for historical artifacts. When outhouses were of no longer use they became the perfect dumping place for garbage and trash. This creates a timeline (from the bottom up) of what was used during that period of history. The items found can be wonderful for the historian as well as us collectors. He also said that after 50 years the "waste" HAS TURNED TO dirt and you have "clean" digging all the way down...Dale in Franklin, KY -- Another story -- I work at an antique mall and found a portrait plate/bowl which at first glance I just thought was pretty. After examining it closer it was an advertising plate for a grocery store with my grandfather's name printed on it. My grandfather passed away before I was born but I knew he owned a grocery/butcher store from my mother's stories about her childhood. I was so excited to have found this treasure and couldn't wait to present it to my Mother for her birthday two months away. It was hard to keep the secret for two months but I managed. My Mother and everyone in our family was shocked and very happy to have this treasure and memory of my grandfather. It is now displayed in my Mother's curio cabinet for all to see and admire. Someone up there must have guided me to this. I am still amazed!!! Be sure to read this weeks "Lost and Found" story, it's a great one...... -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- The Outhouse I have two stories that I will pass on dealing with old outhouses, the second coming at a later date. I had occasion to remove an outhouse, two-holer, that is in a photo taken in 1892, when the near-by home was new. The outhouse had been in regular use until about 1960. It was too close to a shed to burn down, so I had to tear it apart by hand. Under the floor boards, which had a wide gap between them, were 55 old coins and a Case pocketknife. The oldest coin was an 1869 Indian head penny with one 1901 $5 gold piece. I had the Case knife appraised at $125. As this was my Grandparents home since the 1920's, none of my finds are for sale. They are all in a frame, hanging on my wall. No, I didn't dig in the "hole" itself. ....Rocky -- Another story -- The ring in time This may not be vintage but here goes, on a classmates site I saw a listing that said found 1937 class ring of the high school I went to . So I looked in my alumni book and there was only I name with an F as the last name, I did some research and found the lady's daughter (she and her husband had already passed away) that lived in Hawaii. But when I found out that the ring was found up North I thought this was a mistake as I live in South Carolina . Well anyway I gave the lady that found it the daughters name and phone number thinking that it was not the right name but a few days later the daughter e-mailed me back and said that her mothers ring had arrived that day and she was thrilled. Her family had moved up north and lived for years and the lady that found the ring actually found it 40 years ago at the same playground where her family used to go every summer near there home and her mom would swing them for hours. She said she can not wait to show it to her brothers and sisters at their next family reunion. -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Putting it all together I love reading the various stories in here, of other peoples finds, and felt I would like to share this one. My husband and I have been collectors for some time. We each have our own interests, and then some items we both love. One of them being Red Wing Stoneware. We had gone to an estate auction with a young couple who we go antiquing with quite often. They also enjoy the Red Wing Stoneware. Living in Wisconsin the weather for this particular auction was a very dreary, cold fall day with a definite threat of rain or possibly snow. After cruising through the wagons and tables set up at the auction, none of us found anything we would be willing to brave the cold for. I mention all this simply to set up the story for our great find. We were all in one vehicle and decided to leave and go back to town for an enjoyable lunch together. Preferably some place warm! With my husband asking that we decide where we wanted to go soon, because he needed to use a restroom. Well, we were driving past a local antique store and I said, "hey, since we didn't find any treasures at the auction, let's stop in." Again my husband voiced his need to find a restroom. We all kind of remembered that there may be one in this very old main street building that now housed an overflow of antiques. So he gave in and we found a place to park. After inquiring about if there was a restroom, he headed in the directions given. The rest of us scanning the piles, shelves and tables of way too much stuff in one place, which makes for an excitement only collectors can understand. I was poking into some vintage kitchen items when my husband returns and says, "you aren't going to believe this, come here and see what I found." While making use of the facility, he noticed sitting in the corner of the restroom, an absolutely beautiful 6 gallon Red Wing butterchurn in mint condition. It had a bright red large wing, a front stamp and no lid. It also had.....a SOLD tag attached to it. But the dust was so thick on it, that we had to believe it had been sitting for quite some time. What the heck, it doesn't hurt to ask. Locating the owner, we sheepishly asked if the churn was sold, or possibly still available. He said he would have to ask his mother who was actually the owner of the churn. She works the shop with him. She remembered the churn well. She said, ya know, those people never came back for it. Since they hadn't paid anything on it, she said if we were interested, we could have it. Next was to determine how much! She asked if we were going to resell or keep it for our own, as she had had it in her own collection for several years. We honestly told her it would be our treasure and never resold. Actually this dealer had been a distant neighbor of ours, and she knew my mother-in-law. Always such a small world isn't it? At any rate, she said as long as we were keeping it and she knew it would be in a good home, she offered it to us for what we knew was an unbelievably low price of $125.00! We wrote out a check with many thank you's, and thrilled to death, carried it out to the truck. Our friends following, shaking their heads, wishing one of them had used the restroom first!! But, this story of our great find does not end here. I had a client at my place of business where I worked, that was a collector of bottles. We had become good friends. He used to stop and tell me about his finds and also ask me what I had found lately. Well I could hardly tell him my story fast enough. He was so excited for us. And then said, with such a twinkle in his eyes, he had something he thought I could use. On his property there was an old dump site. He had been digging this site for years. Always finding more and more interesting bottles and such. On one of his digs, he had dug into an old rusted through metal chest. Inside there were some broken dishes, and then, laying amongst the shards, a perfect butterchurn lid! He had it all cleaned up and sitting on a shelf at home. Since he had no need for it, he said he would bring it in, and let me take it home to see if it would fit the churn. If it did, we could work out a deal. To cap this story off, yes it did fit. He could have sold this lid for much much more than what he offered it to me. And I will forever appreciate his kind generosity. An appraiser I am friends with identified the lid as a Red Wing. My intentions are to get my bottle collector friend to pose with his shovel at the dump site, and take his picture with the lid. I want to put the picture and this story inside the churn for posterities sake. My husband made a replica wooden plunger for it. Now our wonderful butterchurn with it's lid that had been buried for oh so many years, has a perfect place of honor sitting on a heart shaped braided rug in our kitchen. It's so pretty, it always draws visitors amazed comments, which in turn deserves the telling of this story!! And thank you for letting me now share it with all of you.

Before he died, knowing it was just a matter of time, he chose to give me his violin. He could have given it to his oldest child. Instead he gave it to me, the youngest, with all my sisters' blessings. This violin has been passed from relative to relative since 1895. An uncle of dad's gave it to my dad's father who gave it to his oldest son, dad's brother. Instead of my uncle passing it to his kids he instead honored grampa's wishes and passed it to dad. It now resides with me and everyone knows eventually it will go to my daughter who said she would love to have it. All my sisters agreed and said it was fine. I can't play the violin but I feel I am entrusted with a family member and must care for it to the best of my ability. In the depression era my grandfather was offered over $2000 for it. Soon I will be getting it appraised for insurance purposes and minor repairs done. Regardless of the actual monetary value, to me the memories of grandpa and dad playing on summer nights on the front porch of our farm with mama playing the accordian and we kids singing means more than its eventual appraisal amount. Hopefully 200 years from now, this violin will still be in the family, passing from member to member with the memories of cherishing that, when absorbed into its usic, creates even more memories.....Nancy --Another Story-- Dad It's almost 3 years to the day my Dad passed away because of hospital-borne infections he got after cardiac surgery. I'm one of those children who heard for years how my parents didn't want to linger connected to machines, etc., so the responsibility of carrying out their wishes fell to me. By the time my father had died at Doylestown Hospital (PA), my Mother was in a nursing home, not knowing who was on first some days, and other days she was pretty good. After Dad passed away, we had to sell their house, so we started to gather and price things. Dad always teased me about having a "really big yard sale when I go" - so we talked it over and decided that would be the best way to go. They had "stuff", some antiques, but mostly useable household items. So, the task of pricing and sorting began. Finally the appointed yard sale arrived, a bright sunny June day. We did the best we could and my b-i-l got the prize for selling an empty box! I remembered finding the old tin hurdy-gurdy toy box filled with greeting cards and when I saw someone carrying the toy, I mentioned we had the box and his eyes lit up - I dumped the cards out of the box and handed it to him - not realizing there was a stray price tag stuck to the box - the guy happily paid $15 that for the box cause my b-i-l sold everything full price the first day, he kept telling folks it was to keep a little old lady in a nursing home. As we sat later that night and counted the money, I almost fainted as I got to $1,170 - if you asked my Dad what his favorite number was he'd laugh and say "eleventy-seventy". The best thing happened the very last day I packed things up in my car before the house was turned over to the new owners. My Dad used to make furniture and I made sure each one of my 2 sisters had something he had made. I debated about taking a funny looking step-stool home with me - I could have left it there for the new owners, but decided it would fit in the car so it was going home. As I shoved it in, I noticed Dad had signed his name under the bottom step. When my sister in Texas got her shipment, she found he had signed the bench we sent to her and my other sister found his signature on the bottom of a drawer of a hutch she moved to her home. A few weeks later, I was thumbing thru a catalog and found a step-stool similar to the creation I now treasured. When I asked Mother if she remembered the stool, she smiled and related how Dad had copied it out out of a popular magazine when I was a little girl. He'd be tickled to know his version is now in my kitchen and the original one he copied is now in a musuem - but bet that one's not signed! Ellen Tischbein Schroy -- mments, thoughts?

Send them to newsletter@tias.com and we may publish it here . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- I was blessed with a loving family, and especially loving grandparents. When I was 9 or 10 years old, I was given a hope chest. The chest, itself, is a family heirloom. It was created by a ancestor, who was a fine carpenter, as a tool chest. My grandparents chose to refinish a set of old trunks for their only granddaughters, and I was blessed to receive mine on Christmas. We were given the chests with the old fashioned thought of storing treasures for marriage and a future household of our own. Over the years, my grandmother took to making us gifts for the chest. We got a quilted runner, and potholders one year, and and a crocheted set the next year. On one visit to her home, my gift was an old tin of lace and linen scraps along with a set of handkerchiefs that belonged to both of my maternal great grandmothers and one belonging to her. The gifts were simple and small compared to the virtual treasure trove of my grandmother's home. But they were given in love to me by her. I always thought that someday I'd surprise her with a bridal slip made to showcase a set of handkerchiefs given to a child and remembered by a bride, but last year, she passed away, and while, I'll not have the joy of sharing the day with her. I'll know that her treasured memories are lingering in the swirls of my skirt. I've read with interest the stories of family treasures both big and small in this newsletter. This week, one relative sounded completely spiteful to his or her brother's sons. It saddened me that the writer failed to recognize that refusing to gift a relative just for a petty reason...punished all the generations after them. The writer will be remembered as the greedy one who didn't share... If there was a failure to visit that loss of time will always be a lost memory to those who missed out on the opportunity to spend time with someone special, but there should be no punishment in memories. Anger and hatred don't serve any purpose to the memory of a loved one. I hope you will see fit to give a few treasures to those who missed out on a special life, maybe it will be a reminder that life is too short to waste on petty little things! Bethany -- Another Story -- I grew up in a small town in California in the 1960's. Each Christmas, we would drive around and look at all the Christmas lights and decorations. One street in particular was well-known for its decorating. The entire street would decorate from one end to the other and usually had a certain theme. Cars would be backed up waiting to drive down this street and admire all the lights and different Christmas scenes displayed in the yards. The street was a dead-end, so you had to patiently wait your turn while cars turned around. A girl I went to school with lived on that street. Her family had giant, homemade plywood cut outs of Santa, Reindeer, Elves, etc. Her family sold the home while she was in high school and moved to the country. Several years later, when "MaryAnn" and her husband were house hunting, she found that the home she grew up in on that street was for sale. They ended up buying the house and moved in. Several weeks later, MaryAnn decided to check the attic. Guess what she found? All the plywood Christmas decorations her family had made over twenty years ago! What a great surprise for her! Over the years, the street stopped this tradition, but revised it the year before I moved to Oregon. I was able to once again, re-live my childhood memories and share them with my son.

Here are two more of them. -- Loved ones passing All my growing up years both my parents made sure my siblings knew that when Mom & Dad passed away I was to inherit everything they had.Over the years I had married and had 3 children & then divorced. I spent years with my parents helping them with their home and the upkeep of it never thinking of the "will". Both my parents passed away within 6 weeks of each other and it came time for the will to be read at the attorneys office. My brother who had not spoken to my parents in 20 years (but lived 4 blocks from them), my oldest sister (lived next door to my parents) and hadn't spoken to them for 18 years over a land dispute, the next oldest sibling was grinning & quite beside herself....the will was read & I was devastated--my Father had disowned me and my oldest sister and had given everything to my brother and the grinning sister...I was allowed to take just what was mine from my parents home-stuff I had stored there for years-nothing else. I didn't care that everything was given to the other siblings, it was the fact that I felt so betrayed by my family. My Father was on a medication that made him not quite right when he made out the new will..I certainly can't place any blame on my Dad, but the greedy ones I only have one wish for them---I wish a semi truck & trailer could deliver "stuff" to them everyday of their lives-stuff they would have to put away & take care of..what a justice this would be..O--I for got to mention that the "smiley" sister had also gotten all the worldly possessions of an uncle, mother-in-law, and a cousin..I'm sure her house must be bursting at the seams but I still wish for the semi to deliver daily..Nancy -- Daddy This all started last October. I got a call from my sister. Mother was in the hospital because she had fallen. Fortunately she wasn't hurt badly but her ego had taken a real blow so I went to stay with her until we could move her in with my sister. I wanted to bring her home with me, but Daddy was in the rest home with Alzheimer disease and it just wasn't a good idea for either of them. My sister and I spent hours going through all of their things and packing Mother up to move out of their home for over 40 years. It was a killer job. The work was hard but the old memories were the hardest. everything I picked up had a childhood memory attached to it. Mother and I and Sister had discussed that anything that Sis didn't want I would bring home with me and maybe sell it in my little collectables book shop. This is all well and good but what I found after I got home was totally amazing. I ended up bringing a 17 foot U-Haul home full to the gills. The Bedroom set, the fabric, the hutch and much more. It took me a full week to go through the house and get all of the furniture in place. When it was set finally, I could go through the books and boxes of just stuff that Mother and Daddy had collected over the years. Pat my partner and I were going through the boxes one by one when she handed me this one book. It was a small book that was written in 1922. The memories started to come to me . On almost every week-end of my childhood, mother, daddy, and I would go for a ride into the mountains or up into the San Juaquine Valley just to get away or to look for bottles or yard sales ( we called them rummage sales then). I could recall the trip that we had taken when those books were bought. We had gone for a four day week-end up to Mariposa in the Sierra Nevada Mountains and had found a sale at a house that the State was fixing up to have as a museum, so naturally being the good rummage salers that Mother and I were we stopped. Daddy was looking at books his favorite thing on earth besides Mother and his Caterpillar Tractor D-9. I started looking and I found a book by Mark Twain that I am sure you will recall. We were reading Tom Sawyer in school so of course when I found a copy of it I had to have it and Daddy being the soft touch said ok. He got me that book and two others that day that all had some writings of humor by Mark Twain in them. I hadn't touched any of those books since I was 8 years old so when I began to thumb through them I noticed a notation and a signature on the fly leaf it is signed by him I said to Pat and she who had been going through all of the books while I was busy cherishing memories said to me that isn't the only one. It turned out that we had Two Twain Signatures and two inscriptions one of which may be an unpublished poem he had written. I had thought for all of these years how great a little scamp I was to get Daddy to buy those books and all of the time he was investing in my old age. Before I close this I need to tell you that Daddy was my Step Father and he loved me from the day we met just as much if not more than his own. I was always treated with respect and given choices. I was punished when I Needed to be and loved all of the time no matter what. I Lost my Daddy on December 13 of last year one day before my Birthday. I Miss Daddy but in a way through those books I will always have just a bit of him left. I hope all of you out there know just half the love I did from a man that didn't have to love me only raise me. It is true that any man can be a father but it takes a very special sort of person to be a Daddy and mine was the best....Ruby -- Comments, thoughts?

Here are two of them. -- I'd like to respond to Greg's letter. I agree his uncle and nephew were insensitive, and the timing lousy. However, Its human nature to want something that belonged to the decease to remember them by. When my grandmothers parents died, one of her sisters got everything and gram always wished she had a little something that brought memories of her parents and her childhood. Being able to hold or look at something helps keep those memories alive. My grandfather died 3 years after my grandmother. The day after the funeral, due to family from out of state, my mother, myself, my aunt and uncle all went to my grandfather's house to start cleaning out. First, in our family it has always been understood the person who gave a particular item to the deceased could have it back if they wanted. Next the three children decided to take turns. A jewelry box, each would take one thing in turn. Stuff on a shelf, the same and this is how it went that day. Things they weren't interested in were offered to me. or collected for another grandchild. There are 8 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren and 10 great-great grandchildren. The next day my mother took me to the airport 2-1/2 hours away. ( I was going on a long planned vacation that had been delayed due to my grandfathers death) By the time she got back, her siblings had taken alot of stuff to habitat or the dump. The only thing bad was that a necklace that my sister had given my grandfather had been sitting on the counter and must have been knocked off into one of these bags. When I returned a week later, the house had already been sold to the first person to look at it. My mother and I went over to pick up the last few things. As we were walking out I noticed the wood key hanging by the door. My grandfather had made it out of 1/4 inch plywood and painted it gold, put cup hooks in it and they used this to hang their keys on. It was something I had seen all my life by their door. It has no value, just sentiment. It had been overlooked by everyone. I found a screwdriver and took it off the wall while crying. You see, its not just wanting valuable things, people are just afraid they won't get the chance to have something that has memories for them, so they start asking too soon and it seems insensitive. On the otherhand if they wait it may be gone. So don't judge people for wanting something. Its like having a piece of the person who is gone. The items I have that belonged to my grandparents are pricless to me and I am so thankful that I have them. They trigger memories every time I look at them. Ronna L. J. -- Enjoyed reading various takes on the subject. I inherited my parents house (my family home, as I & my brother grew up here). When just after Dad died, Mom & my brother had passed before him, I recieved a midnight call from my now past 18year old nephew wondering what was going to happen to the house etc. I very pleasantly informed him it was none of his business. A few weeks before Dad passed, I had mentioned my nephew, he had better visit his grandfather as he was ill. None of my brothers kids had bothered with Dad since seeing their Grandmother & him the day before Mom had died. To my nephews credit he did visit once. I gave those now adult "kids" nothing since I felt they were unworthy (they had gotten plenty of gifts for birthdays & Christmas prior. I have only gotten a call when someone needs money. I became an antique dealer & my clients are far more appreciative of treasures than those ingrates. The money I make enables me to keep my lovely childhood home pretty much the same as when my folks were here. When I die the bank will get the contents & what the house brings since I will have enjoyed a wonderful reverse mortgage in my senior years. Let them cry crocodile tears, they blew it! -- Comments, thoughts?

She is absolutely on the mark saying how rude and self-serving not to mention "tacky" when someone asks if they can have something "when they die". Cherish life to its fullest. Cherish those you love... not the material items they own! As some of you know, I recently suspended my TIAS store while I traveled back to be with my parents while my mother was hospitalized. She was only 71 years old and after 3 months in the hospital she passed away on January 1, 2004. My father who was 81, followed her in death only 27 days later... mainly from a broken heart after being married for 52 years to my mother. It was a very emotional time for the entire family. My point is that our loved ones are absolutely more important than any material item they have - anyone who thinks otherwise deserves absolutely nothing to remember our loved ones by. I have always thought my own large and extended family was very loving, but it was amazing to find out otherwise. On the death of my mother no one in the family made mention of anything because all of her possessions went to my father. But less than a month later when my father passed away it became evident that the vultures were circling... and ready to strike! At my father's visitation, my uncle who I have dearly loved and cared for all these years approached me about a blacksmith anvil that he said he had loaned my dad more than 25 years ago and if it was still around he wanted it back! I told him he should have discussed that with Dad when he was living... not with me now with my father dieing in the casket a few feet away. Then there was my nephew who at the same visitation/viewing of my Dad asked if he could have my Dad's Browning Sweet Sixteen shotgun. Boy. Can we at least wait till we get our beloved parents buried? It's a very, very touchy subject but one thing is crystal clear - people, and family, are insensitive and hurtful (whether intentional or not) whenever the "When You Die..." or "Since They're Dead..." material possesions questions are posed. I feel sorry for people who broach this subject with those questions to people living or to the family remaining when a loved one has passed. Have a little heart people... instead of showing how cold yours is. Best Regards, Greg W. -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- A friend of my mother was preparing for an Estate Sale of her mothers home. She invited my Mom to come over, and pick out what she wanted prior to the Sale. As she was looking over a treasure trove of Antiques she noticed a box with some Milk Glass in it. Knowing how much I love beautiful glass she began to rummage through the box, and found a number of Ceramic, and Pottery pieces as well. Three of the pieces she found, (Teapot, Sugar Bowl, and Gravy Boat) were marked HR Quimper France. She asked what they wanted for the pieces in the box. The elderly Mother of my Mom's friend told her that she could have the entire box. When my Mom asked her about the Quimper she told her that she had received the Quimper from her mother who had bought them during a trip to Europe years earlier. My mom paid her a hundred dollars for the box of treasures. I have since looked them up, and have not been able to find the exact pieces. While they may or may not be really expensive my Mom knowing my love for Glass, Ceramics, and Pottery has given them to me for display in my own personal collection. That makes them priceless to me, after all who can put a price on a Mothers love. --Another Story-- This happened a long time ago. In England. I was 14 years old and the Second World War had just begun. I had to get a job . . . anything. That's how it was then I got a job in a garage. Mostly I did lube jobs, tire changes etc. Not very uplifting to say the least. Dirty work too.My wages were twelve shillings and sixpence (12/6 is how they wrote it). For a 48 hour nose to the grindstone week of work. A pound Sterling consisted of twenty shillings or two hundred and forty pence (pennies). Talk about slave labour. I worked a 48 hour work week which included 4 hours Saturday morning. I had just got off work and I was standing on the side of the road waiting for a bus to take me close to home. It was a beautiful day. Sunny and warm too. You don't get many of those in the North of England where I lived. As I stood there, I remember that there was a sort of 'Out of this world' feeling about it. I don't recall anyone else being anywhere close to me. No pedestrians, no buses, no cars no bicycles had passed me going in either direction. Then I heard a strange sound. Sort of a 'tinny' sound coming from up the road on my left. I glanced in the direction of the sound and about a hundred yards away I saw this shiny 'thing' rolling down the road. It wasn't more than a couple of inches in diameter and if it kept on going it would pass in front of me and keep on going. It didn't. It reached a position about diagonally across the road from me when suddenly it turned almost as though it was alive and it began to roll right towards me. It might have hit against the curb at my feet but it didn't. When it got to within a foot of me it stopped and fell over on it's side. It was a silver half crown. Naturally I picked it up. Today with the new money system there is no such coin any longer but to give you some idea of it's value I will tell you that there was 8 half crowns in a Pound Sterling. My wages I mentioned was twelve shillings and sixpence a week. Exactly five half crowns. That Saturday I took home an extra half crown making my total (including this 'found' coin) for the week fifteen shillings. A Princely sum in 1940. An order of fish and chips cost only three pence. A Half Crown equaled thirty pence. You could almost live a whole week on one Half Crown. You could even buy a 'pennorth' (one penny's worth - 1d) of just chips if you desired. Anoint 'em with salt and vinegar and you were in a seventh heaven, I kid you not. But where did that half crown come from? I have never been able to say truthfully that I knew where it came from. From God? From a UFO? Like I said I don't recall any human coming anywhere near me all the time I stood there. In fact I didn't even see a human either close or far away for that matter until I got on 'my' bus that took me away from the 'scene'. It is still and will forever be . . . . a mystery.....John T. -- Comments, thoughts?

The family hollered and harrumped--who would take care of Mother! Well, GG, being the indepentent cuss she was, decided it was time EVERYONE decided to stop worrying about her and she checked herself into a wonderful retirement center where she could live worry free and her daughter and son-in-law could take any vacation they wanted. Of course GG's stuff was divided up among the 4 kids. Then the 11 grands (I'm the eldest) got to come choose. My aunt had a big stack of stuff she piled up for me, so it took that stack along with the stuff I really wanted. Seven years later, I needed a needle and came across a small scarf box filled with sewing supplies and lots of RUSTY straight pins. After throwing away all the pins, I noticed a ring. It was white gold, had a tiny diamondof each side of a center yellow rectangular stone. It was bent to fit a finger and fit mine perfectly. I visited my aunt, showing her the ring, but she didn't remember it. We talked for a time and she suddenly remembered GG had received a ring when her sister had died at age 99, about 17 years earlier. My aunt suggested I ask GG. Since GG's mind was now beginning to wander, I was to ask her directly: Is this Aunt Gilly's ring? I went to the retirement center, visited with GG for a short time and then asked my question. GG looked closely and then declared "Why it sure looks like it! And you can have it." After GG died late last summer at 100 years, 5 months and 3 days, leaving her 4 children, 11 grands, 16 greats, 13 greatX2, and 1 greatX3, a friend (jeweler) said the stone was a synthetic shaphire made to look like a topaz and that the little diamonds were real. He also said that since it had been my grandmother's and my Aunt Gilly's it was PRICELESS. Oh, yes. I also found a needle in that box...... Peggy W --Another Story-- Kotoyasan I used to have an English school in a small city in Gifu prefecture in Japan. My student's uncle was an antique/junk dealer - they call them "kotoyasan." In the country long ago, rich families would build a "treasure house" on their property. All of the important things were stored in this large, one room building. Often, the family hasn't gone in the building in years and has no interest in the dusty junk inside. So, antique dealers will offer to buy the whole building from the family. This is a risky move for the dealer because usually there really isn't anything in there but dusty junk. Anyway, my student's uncle bought a treasure house off a family whose patriarch had recently died and went through the contents, not finding much of value. Then he noticed the plaster on the wall was uneven. He cut into the wall to find over 1million yen (almost $10,000) had been plastered into the wall!...Lesley -- Comments, thoughts?

Usually they would let me buy something for $1.00 or so. Back in 1950 we went to an auction of a lady who had never married and had no living relatives so her estate was being liquidated. with the proceeds being given to her favorite charities. I found a box with a silver mirror, hairbrush and comb, some knickknacks and a couple of pocketbooks. Being about 11 or 12 at the time, these things were treasures to me and I asked my parents if I could have them. They bid on them and got the whole box for $1.00. On the way home I just couldn't wait to look further into the box to see if there was something I might have missed. I opened one of the pocketbooks and rummaged around, finding an old handkerchief - but then I felt something else. In the purse there was a little zippered pouch which held two rings! I was so excited and passed them to my mother to see. My father couldn't believe his eyes and pulled right off to the side of the road to get a better look. They took them to a jewelers and found that one was a mine-cut diamond in a very old white gold setting and the other had three opals and eight garnets. My mother wore the diamond (since she had never had one of her own) and would only wear the opal and garnet ring for something special. On my 25th birthday my mother gave both rings to me to enjoy. Quite a find! Dottie D. --Another Story-- About 20 years ago, I was VERY disappointed to find that a “secretary” I wanted from my Great Aunt’s Estate Sale had already been sold—---for $150.00! Then I received a call that the buyer had returned the "secretary” saying that it was not solid wood---only veneer—and she did not want it. I was then told I could buy it for $50.00 if I was still interested. Since it was winter and out of town, a local friend of mine picked it up & stored it for me. When I got it to my home in the spring, I cleaned & inspected it. In the two hidden compartments, I found a handful of very old coins including a Walking Liberty Love Token & Centennial & Worlds Fair Medals etc. I was thrilled with them, as they all were related to my families travels and special memories. I’m sure they have some value, but don’t know how much. In 1996, the 'secretary' appraised for $1200! Toni -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- About 10 years ago, I bought a pair of used running shoes from a local resale shop. I wore them happily for several years. They were getting pretty delapidated, but still had some miles of walking in them, so I took them with me to the Himalayas, knowing that at the end of the trip, I'd give them to a local person, who probably would have no shoes. After many days of walking,a blister started to develop, so I looked in the shoe to find out what was causing it. Imagine my surprise when I removed the inner pad and found several very worn $100 dollar bills folded underneath! Without the money the shoes were fine again, and I gave them to our very delighted guide. When I got back, I found that the resale shop had closed long before, so I took the money to the bank to see if it was still useable. It was, so I used it to bring more clothes and shoes to people in the Himalayas on our next trip! Yours, Susie --Another Story-- At our local flea market I purchased a picture of chickens. When I got it home I read the biography of the artist that was taped to the back. Out of curosity I typed in the artist's name, lo and behold she had a web site. Showing on this site was information about her prints. The print I purchased has written on it " l/245". The website lists her prints in the "chicken series" sells for around a thousand dollars! I paid five dollars for it. The artist is in California, I cannot imagine how this would have come to be at a flea market in Albany, Georgia and being just leaning on a box on the ground. I emailed the artist to tell her about my find, this was several weeks ago, I have had no response from her. Barbara --Another Story-- About 25 years ago a friend of mine had the back breaking job of cleaning out houses. His partner and himself cleared out an old house and at the end of the day, were moving out the old refrigerator. As they placed it on the wheeled dolly a 20 dollar bill fell out of the bottom. They looked underneath. Stuffed inside the metal grill there were several more 20 dollar bills, some had burnt edges but mostly intact. I don't know exactly how much was there and frankly I don't know if they ever told the boss, but within a week my friend had a new truck! Must have been a lot of 20's, especially since he had to split the profits with his buddy. Laura D. -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- Recently, my husband and I purchased an old house near Munson, PA - unfortunately, the previous owners cleared the place out pretty good & it didn't seem that there were any remnants of the past linking us to the early/original owners of the home. On the good advice of a friend, however, we took up the last step in the attic to reveal a whole host of goodies that undoubtedly belonged to one of/or the original family! Children's metal toys, an old bakelite doll, and puzzle pieces were revealed. Even though these items may not have great monetary value, they mean so much to us because they connect us to the lives of those who once treasured our home as much as we now do. These items are on prominent display now in our home! M.K.C.Pennsylvania --Another Story-- Our second apartment was only three rooms and it needed a real cleaning. As I was sweeping behind a radiator with a broom a brown bag fell out from behind. It had an antique chain mail purse in it. Inside the purse was a small box and inside that was a 1.25 carat diamond ring. Not being able to locate the owner, we sold it and bought a small washer and dryer set as we were expecting our first baby in a few months. It was a real blessing! Ava M. --Another Story-- The most memorable garage sale item I ever bought was a child's pair of shorts I got for a quarter for a grandson. That evening, I washed it with clothes I had found at other garage sales. Before putting the clothes in the dryer,I noticed Kleenex all over everything. I then checked pockets and found that 4 $100 bills had been wrapped in Kleenex in a pocket of the shorts. It was too late on Sunday, and garage signs had been taken down to try to find what house had had the sale, so I could not return them. A bank verified they were genuine. Kathy S. --Another Story-- At one of our local charity thrift shop all donations are collected and then sent to a larger town for sorting and distribution to the thrift stores for sale. An elderly man came in and was extremely upset. His wife who had developed memory problems had donated a bunch of unwanted items just days before. Well, she had forgotten that their long time hiding place for cash was inside jigsaw puzzle boxes and she had put their old games and puzzles in with the donation she and her daughter had dropped off. The clerk explained that all the donations were shipped out to the other town for sorting and that they no longer had them. The poor man was close to tears and pleaded with her to please let him go in the back and look for himself. She agreed but thought the effort was a waste of time. When they got to the back room she was shocked to see piles of items that for some reason had not been shipped out. It turned out that the person who usually did that had go tten sick so the pickup wasn't made. The old man started looking and within minutes had found the three "special" jigsaw puzzles. He was almost afraid to look inside but when he did his stashed cash, all $2,500 of it !!!!! , was safe and sound. Thank goodness that this time the treasure was found by the owner. There have been more than a few times that I have found cash in small amounts inside a variety of garage sale items. I always return it even though it has never been a significant amount. Remember.....one of these days it could be ourselves who forget where we "stash the cash". Patti, Illinois -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- I worked at a thrift store. I priced the Mens clothes. I would find money all the time. One time I was about to throw away a 1970's burnt orange veloure bathrobe that had holes all over it and the stale cigarette smell was overpowering, I noticed a lump in the pocket, it was a wad of cash! I ran up to the managers office and it was over $300! I went back down and looked in the other pocket before I threw it away and there was more! I had found $840! Lydia --Another Story-- One of the first antiques my husband and I bought after we got married was a big, old overstuffed armchair, the kind that was very popular in the 1920's & 30's. The chair was part of a set, but we only had enough money for the chair, so the dealer sold it to us separately. The chair is incredibly heavy, and we think the cushions are stuffed with horsehair, but... After owning the chair for awhile, one day I decided to give it a thorough cleaning with the vacuum attachments. Lifting the seat cushion, I inserted the cleaning tool into the crevice between the arms and the seat. Suddenly there was a loud rattling noise! I immediately turned off the vacuum, and started checking the tool, hose and vacuum bag. Sure enough, several pennies had been vacuumed out of the crevice. This has been an ongoing occurrence now for the last 16 years. The chair gives up pennies on a regular basis, even though I vacuum it thoroughly and even put my hand in the crevice to see if there are any more. The chair still weighs a ton, but now the family joke is that the chair is stuffed with pennies, not horsehair! We are hoping to have the chair reupholstered soon, but I'm afraid it might be like killing the goose that laid the golden eggs. Kathleen --Another Story-- Hi! Have really enjoyed the newsletter and the stories. I have a found money story that made me extremely proud of my husband. He and a friend had attended an estate sale for a elderly lady who was a rockhound and had lots and lots of lapidary equipment and scads of rock and minerals stashed away. (Seems like we never live long enough to use up all of the goodies that we rockhounds collect!) His friend had an 'in' with the person conducting the sale, and had been invited to attend it a day before the actual sale to look things over as he had a lot of lapidary 'connections' and the seller wanted him to let others know about the sale. They were very interested in the garage full of equipment, but since the sale was not in progress yet they made arrangements to return the next day. However, they were allowed to go through the many, many cigar boxes of rock slabs and minerals in the basement and pick out a few. My husband found a cigar box that contained rolls and rolls of coins and a large bundle of cash and took it upstairs to the person managing the sale and told her that he didn't think that she really wanted to sell that box for the $2.00 price. She grabbed it in surprise, but never even said a Thank you! They bought a few boxes at the $2.00 price and returned the next day to find that she had sold the entire contents of the garage for a pittance to another buyer right after they left the day before. I was VERY proud of my husband for his honesty, and only hope that the lady who received the money passed it on to the elderly lady who was the heir to her friend's estate. I bet the dealer spent the night going through the rest of those cigar boxes! Ann B. -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- Dear Friends, I've so enjoyed your newsletter, and look forward to it each and every week. The most recent letter included stories of found money. I have a story from "the other side". My grandparents bought their small farm in what was then rural Beaverton, Oregon after Grandpa came home from WWII. This was in 1945. They lived happily on their three acres until Grandma couldn't care for Grandpa any more and he had to be live in a care center. Grandma stayed on the farm as long as she could, but finally in the late 1990's she could no longer keep it all up. They had lived there for 54 years. Now Granddad was a collector "from way-back". He kept everything. He had worked for Portland General Electric for over 40 years, and had many electrical related items, (PGE cast-offs) as well as things he had picked up at auctions after his retirement - many still had the auction tags on them! Grandpa was from the old school that didn't much trust banks, and had a habit of hiding money. He was no longer able to tell us his hiding places when we began to go through things for an estate sale, so we carefully searched everywhere we could think for literally weeks before the sale, rounding up thousands of dollars in bills that he had obviously started hiding soon after moving in. We even found some silver certificates! One day of the sale, a lady approached me with an odd look on her face. She was holding an old cardboard fuse case. It was cylindrical, about 6 inches long, about 3 inches in diameter, and had removable end caps. She handed the item to me and said, "I would like to buy this, but I believe you may want what is inside." I opened it up to find rolled $20 bills. We thanked the lady profusely, and let her have the fuse box and any other items she wanted! When we entered the shed where she had found this item, we found about four more cylinders. There was a total of over $3000 in all the cylinders, about $800 of which was in the one the lady had given us. This money was a great help to my grandmother, who was living on a fixed income, and trying to pay for my grandfather's living expenses. We often talk of the honesty of this woman. Unfortunately, we were so stunned at the find, we forgot to even ask her name! Where ever she is, she has our eternal gratitude and has reinstilled the notion that there are people of integrity still out there! Thanks for this opportunity to say "Thank you"! S.M.S. --Another Story-- I had a 'money find' when I was 15 or 16 years old. At an estate sale in an old chicken shed I found a dusty old seeburg juke box. The estate was from a man I knew who ran a vending business from the 1920's to the 1960's. I bought the juke box for $10. and brought it home. Days later I cleaned the outside and inside of the juke box and plugged it in. A color wheel (like a barber pole) inside the unit was not running even though I could here the whine of the motor trying to make it turn. I decided to pull the color wheel out of the juke box and upon doing so I was shocked to see the whole bottom of the color wheel filled with mercury head dimes. I realized that the dimes being so thin slid from the coin slot down into the color wheel causing it to not turn. Since that find I am always looking for old vending machines to buy for sometimes their exciting extras!...J Hance, Oregon. -- Comments, thoughts?

I hadn't heard from you for almost two weeks. I have had much trouble with my computer and thought sure that you couldn't get through. Don't ever leave me. Thanks for all of the interesting stories and recipes. I work for a thrift store in Prescott, Az. and come across some amazing and unusual things. One time I found $780.00 wrapped up in an old Scouting ditty bag. I threw it away, because it was ratty and dirty with old rusty razors in it. But something told me that I better retrieve it from the trash and check it out more. It kept unfolding, about 5 times. At this point some of the money fell out; about 300.00 in 20 dollar bills. I got excited and went to show it to my boss and the rest came tumbling out. What a day! There were some phone numbers in the bag. We tried to call but it was disconnected. No one ever asked for it, so it went into the weeks sales. So when a new person starts working there they are asked if they checked the pockets or looked into the tin for the money. They want to know why then are told the story. Not two weeks after this, one of the other girls found over 400.00 in the pages of an old cookbook. You never know! J.H. --Another Story-- Slip Cover My husband and I spent the better part of a year collecting just the right antique furniture for a new addition we were building.Everything was stored in the garage until the room was ready,about a year.We started one Saturday polishing and bringing our finds into the house.The sofa and chair had the old slip covers on which we had left there to protect the velvet covering.Well,off came the covers and to our surprise there were rolls and rolls of $20.00 bills all shoved in between the covers and the cushions.To our amazement there was $1800.00 .We tried to find the owner but to know avail.What a find that was..Marlene G -- Comments, thoughts?

From time to time, one son searches online auctions for the key word "Suffern". Most hits are for post cards of scenes of Suffern, New York. On one occasion, the hit listed a legal document for an Edward James Suffern in Illinois for the purchase of a business. Edward James Suffern would be his sixth great grandfather. My son put in a bid on the document and watched it for several days. He ultimately was the successful bidder at $39.00 plus shipping and insurance. About a week after the close of the auction, the document arrived via the US Mail, enclosed in archival acetate. My son opened the package and read through the document. Much of the "legalese" was on a preprinted form, with dates and particulars filled in. To his amazement, it was signed not once, but twice by Abraham Lincoln. He has since taken the document to two different autograph specialists and both agreed that the signatures and the writing were by the hand of Lincoln. Also, both offered to purchase the documents for considerably more than the $39.00 he paid for it. Even online auctions can be the source of spectacular finds, even when you are not expecting it....Bill Inverness, FL --Another Story-- Eeyore My aunt and uncle had guardianship over me when I was preschool for a few years (they never had any children of their own) and while at their home, my aunt gave me a straw stuffed burro (I think I was made in Mexico) to play with because I liked “Eeyore” from Disney. After over 30 years from when I stayed with her she decided to move to another state and called me stating she had some pictures and a few “things” I might like from when I was with her. I received a medium size box in the mail and upon opening it, there staring up at me was this well loved stuff burro. I still have this little straw stuffed burro—even with a little straw coming out a small hole or two. It brought back such wonderful memories of the love she shared with me.

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. -- The Blanket When I was a child, my mother, who was quite the antiques dealer AND collector, made my sisters and me twin beds with 2 cotton pink blankets, probably from the 1940's. They had white flower baskets on them in sort of a reverse. Oh how I loved that blanket. It went to college with me and covered my bed and when I had children, it covered my daughters beds as well. Well after 25 years of a lot of love, I finally had to face the fact that the blanket was torn and worn and sadly threadbare. I folded that blanket and put it in the linen closet, perhaps to make into a pillow when the kids are grown and gone. AS I put it away, I thought of mom, who had died 6 years before and I became a little weepy, as I have been known to get. Anyway, the other day, I was in the vintage textile area of an online auction and I clicked on a "blanket" listing, something I have never done before. Lo and behold, I saw my blanket pop up. It was just like mine only in better shape and very clean. I hastily put a bid on it and spent 3 anxious days watching to see if I had won that blanket. It must have meant to be mine, as no one else bid on it. It arrived today and as opened it, I thought of my beloved mother and all the memories came flooding back. I held it to me and felt a mothers love. My daughter sits right now on the couch covered in that blanket as I type this and I feel it has indeed come home to us...Leslie -- Comments, thoughts?

She had a led crystal perfume bottle with a large stopper. I would sit on my throne (the vanity with everything removed) and dab perfume on while I played princess. A year after she died my husband and I were in an antique store when I saw a perfume bottle just like Mom’s. When we cleaned out the house my perfume bottle was not among her things. I picked up the bottle, took out the stopper and smelled the sweet scent of perfume. This of course made me get misty eyed. My husband insisted I buy the bottle (even at the cost of $55). I took the bottle home and unwrapped it, there was no perfume smell at all in the bottle. I think I experience a special memory in the store which made me buy that wonderful bottle. The bottle is now in my china closet and whenever I want to play princess again, I open the door and dab on my imaginary perfume. Memories are wonderful things and antique stores are great places for experiences like this. Thanks for letting me share this with you....Yvonne W -- Another Story-- The Letter My sister died almost two years ago and my brother-in-law just died last Thursday. His children, while sorting through their things, found a large box of recipes my sister had collected. They asked if I would like to look through them before they were given to another member of the family. I said yes and, while looking through them, I found a letter to my sister and brother-in-law from my daughter (who died in 1974 at age 10, ) asking them to come visit her (she was in the hospital at the time). I treasure that letter. I also found other things (newspaper clippings, report cards, graduation programs, and some songs my sister had written) that others in the family treasure mixed in with those recipes. It just goes to show that you should really sort boxes of papers that look like they are worth nothing before you discard them-especially if the deceased was a pack rat like most in our family are. Ruth --Another Story-- The Blanket Last week our Olds Cierra, whose head gasket has been slowly leaking, started to "knock",indicating its demise was certain. My husband began to empty the "nooks and crannies" - trunk, backseat, under the seats, etc.,etc.and proudly announced his boxful of "FINDS"!!---state maps, a dozen or so pens and pencils, various expired coupons, a few pennies AND an old blanket. He asked when had WE put it in the trunk!! I did not recognize it; but much to my surprise and judging from the color (Army green), realized it was very old and definitely 100% wool. It had a very small sewn-on identifying tag in a lower corner barely readable "Chatham Mf.Co." and dated "4-16-1942". Other numbers on the tag made little sense. I went on-line and found it to be what I suspected: US Army issue blanket from WWII made by Chatham Mfg.Co. Where did it come from? The original owner of the Olds Cierra was my husband's as well as our son's Godfather, who served in WWII. Our son had received the car when Uncle had passed away several years ago and we in turn had purchased the vehicle from him. Our son will Cherish the blanket!... Theresa -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - When my mom died and we had a sale of all her household effects that my sister and I didn't care to keep, my 10 year old son and I were making one last look through the house where I had grown up and he had visited his grandparents. My dad had made a ladder to the attic by nailing cross-pieces onto the framing along the stairs leading down to the basement. My son climbed Grandpa's ladder one last time, stuck his head into the attic space, and called down, "Mom, there's something up here." He handed down a big hand turned wooden bread bowl and a glass coal oil lamp. The lamp was of little value, but my sister has it on her mantle, and I'm so pleased to have my Grandma Cox's bread bowl, as well as the memory of how my son and I found it and saved it. Nancy V. Honolulu, Hawaii -- Another Story-- My daughter and I love to attend the once a week garage sales in our small mining town. On one of our "rounds", I spotted an old laundry clothes stomper in excellent condition sitting at the end of a picnic table.....being eyed by the other treasure hunters, but after looking, it seemed that everyone just walked on. I listened to some of the comments about it and my favorite was "I think that it was meant to be a toilet tissue holder....see that little side handle ...well, that would keep the tissue roll from sliding down the pole." I couldn't help but laugh and when I told my daughter about it, she insisted I had to buy it. I did. I paid ten dollars for the best looking "like new" clothes stomper I had ever seen...and I had seen a few, because back on the farm, it was just part of laundry day for everyone ...and mighty hard work. Fun sometimes to be the oldest one in the crowd and know the history of something equally as old. The lady who was selling it said that it had been in their family long before she got married and she had been married for fifty years. There is not a spot of rust on it..Beautiful condition!! --Another Story-- 16 years ago we began collecting commemorative Methodist plates (churches, schools, hospitals, historical events, etc.). We are local Methodist church historians and this is our effort to preserve the history of ALL of Methodism (UMC, AME, AME Zion, CME, EUB, Primitive, Southern, Free, Wesleyan, etc.). Our plates are pottery, porcelin, glass, aluminum, wood, pewter, etc. We have recently been notified by the Guinness Book of World Records that our collection has been accepted!! Although the site needs updating, please see our website at: www.ebenezercollection.com. The collection began with a simple yard sale purchase while on a trip to visit with relatives! Now, there are over 1,700 plates in the collection. The entire collection has been bequeathed to the United Methodist Church General Commission on Archives and History, located at Drew University, Madison, NJ, USA. Future generations will be able to learn about individual congregations, events, schools, etc. and the plates will also be useful in restoration attempts. Thought you might be interested in something simple becoming so important. Barbara S. Memphis, TN, USA -- Comments, thoughts?

There was an old cap and ball gun stored in their garage that I used to play with. They moved to California, after the war, and I forgot about the old gun. In 1958, my grandmother broke up housekeeping and had an auction. After the sale, I decided to take one more tour through the old house that I loved so much. I went into each room and each room was, of course, empty. But, in an upstairs bedroom, there was an entrance to the attic. I opened the door and peeked in. Not expecting to see anything, I was surprised to see an object in the far corner of the attic. It was all wrapped up in a blanket. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that long forgotten gun! I kept it for years and have now passed it on to my son. The gun, incidentally, is an 1846 Springfield. I have never seen it listed in an antique guide. Ray S. -- Another Story-- Giving it away About 2 years ago, I cleaned my cupboards and made 4 piles on my dining room table. Each pile got a cup and saucer, creamer and sugar bowl, salad bowl, salt and peppers, a piece from my Coca Cola collection, a footed candy dish, etc. I tried to make each pile an equal value, so if I had one valuable salad bowl, then I put less valuable things in that pile so each equaled about the same thing. Then I packed each pile into a separate box and put a number on it. When my family was here, I numbered some Beanie Babies and had each grandchild draw a number. They thought it was for the Beanies, but it was actually for the box of dishes. Then the moms were instructed to take the corresponding box to their cars to be opened later. Now each of my grandchildren has a box of "stuff" from gramma, I don't know who got what so there was no favoritism shown and everyone was happy. I gave each of the parents something that I knew he/she had admired over the years and wanted some day. One of them asked "Are you trying to tell us something?" I replied "Yes, I want to be able to open my cupboard and find what I want without moving lots of other stuff". I am doing the same with other items along the way. I believe in the motto of the late Percy Ross who said "He who gives while he lives also knows where it goes". And it will eliminate dealing with it all when I'm gone. A win-win situation, don't you think? Marlene -- Comments, thoughts?

My Grandmother collected a set of Haviland China thru her Jewel Tea distributor who came around each week, by horse and buggy, in the very early 1900"s. She had service for 12 plus many of the serving pieces. When she passed away in 1958, the set was split between her 2 daughters, her only children. I remember my Mother writing away to dealers all over the country, buying a piece at a time, until she had service for 12 and many of the serving pieces. Meanwhile, my Aunt was doing the same thing. My Aunt's Husband passed away, and she moved in with my Mother, disposing of the majority of her furniture and various things. Then in the 60's my Aunt passed away, and my Mother inherited her things, including her Haviland service for 12. My Mother now had service for 24. In the 70's my Mother passed away. My only sister and I could not figure out how to divide up the set, as there were only 1 of many of the serving pieces, like the covered serving bowl. The solution? My sister and I had our spouses pack up the china. The identical boxes were placed in our respective area, 12 dinner plates, 12 salad plates, etc. The serving pieces were packed in mystery boxes. My sister and I each got to pick 2. Of course, I got the covered serving bowl. My Aunt always liked me best! Dave G. -- Another Story-- Precious pieces When I was a little girl my grandparents lived in an oil camp. The camp had a dump where the residents would throw out things they now longer wanted or needed. Mostly is was broken furniture, old appliances, etc. Although we children had been told not to play at the dump, occasionally we would disobey. We had a playhouse in the woods we called the Kennedy Mansion (he was president at the time) and we were always looking for things to "furnish" it with. I came across a clear glass sugar bowl with no chips or cracks, just no lid. We took it home and my grandmother fell in love with it so I gave it to her. Years passed and I no longer saw the sugar bowl in her cabinet so I assumed it had been broken or thrown away. When she died a few years ago, my aunts and uncles went through the house and took the things they wanted. Then we grandchildren were allowed to look for any leftovers we might want. You guessed it, my sugar bowl was still there hidden behind some old tea glasses. It means nothing to anyone but me and only because my wonderful grandmother loved it so. On a side note, when I was in the second grade my teacher gave me a planter that looked like a miniature spinning wheel. I gave it to my grandmother and over the years it disappeared. When looking through the "worthless" things the aunts and uncles didn't want, I found it, too. My sisters and I found many things that day that have no monetary value, but precious memories attached to Grandmother. Including enough feather pillows for each of us five girls to have two each, she had written the date on the ticking when she made each one. I feel like we got the most valuable things of all.

My friend Lesa kept me fairly busy one year with many nice pieces she would find at the "Neighborhood Cleanup" the city sponsors where we live. One day she presented me with one of those old cabinet style Victrolas...unfortunately it was in pretty sad shape missing 2 legs. Lesa said she had found it laying in the gutter at the side of the road. We were both astonished anyone would throw away such a lovely piece even with missing legs. Lesa hired my services and I was able to match the legs with some extra's I had from other old furniture. My boyfriend even managed to carve them in the same manner as the originals. After I was finished, it was hard to tell which leg was the original. Lesa was very happy with the results. About a year later I was discussing the whole thing with another friend. I described the Victrola to her in detail and when I told her where Lesa had found it my friend jumped up crying out "That was mine! My boyfriend threw it out the garage door during an argument!" Needless to say, we contacted Lesa to find out about getting the Victrola returned to her... unfortunately Lesa had sold it for several hundred dollars just days before. Diane K. -- Another Story-- The Rocket When I was eight years of age,my Grandfather and I were in a little country store.We didn't have much money and tend not to enjoy the frivolous things in life, however, my Grandfather was a kind and loving man and saw fit to purchase this tin rocket ship for me. It had a friction motor in it and sparks came from the back when you rolled along the ground. I thought it was the best toy a kid could have. My brothers were somewhat destructive in nature so, my Grandmother kept the toy at their home for safe keeping and I would play with it on visits.Time passed and I went to Vietnam and to College,got married. Time passed and so did my Grandfather.And a little while later my Grandmother followed.I attended the funeral but, lived out of town and did not have the to go to their home to collect some memories as did the rest of the family. However, a few years later, one of my aunts called me(she must have inherited my Grandfather's kindness) and told me ( I'm 56years old now)that she had found something at Grandmother's house long ago and that looked like something that could have belonged to me. She kept it all of these years. When I saw it, it was still wrapped in the dish towel and, I opened it and once again, I was eight years old and I was standing in my Grandmother's kitchen with the aromas of country foods cooking and fresh baked pies in the air and the sound of a stone scraping across a metal blade as my Grandfather sharpened his Axe.I truly am one of the luckiest people in the world.

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - Garbage Ditch I grew up in a rural area where it was commonplace to have a ditch used for a "dump" back in the field somewhere. Recently my husband and 12 year old son were hunting near the ditch where the "dump" used to be. It hadn't been used as a dump for over 25 yr. since my Dad was living. My husband noticed something sticking out of the ground and realized it was part of a doll. He remembered me telling about my toys being thrown away, so they worked and dug to get the leg dislodged, finding the rest underneath. Imagine my shock to see them carry home the head, legs and arms of a doll that my Dad had years ago thrown away. Somewhere along that ditch is my wonderful metal doll house that I had kept on a closet shelf and then was stored in the laundry room on a shelf for safe keeping. Dad was notorious for wanting things "neat and clean" and it wasn't uncommon for him to throw things out without a thought of who's it was. The cloth body of course was long gone but the head and limbs cleaned up fairly well. My Mom is going to help me make a new body for her and I plan to keep her safe from now on. -- Another Story-- Box of memories I opened a box of memorabilia to show my oldest son some of my precious things. I asked if he'd take what he liked and display them. Wasting no time, he said "I don't display stuff, Mom." But I thought if I explained to him what they were, they'd seem more appealing. Why would he turn down the first pair of glasses I wore in 1941, still in its original blue case? Three surviving souvenirs from my trip West in mid 1940's? The tiny plate on a stand that always held my childhood birthday cakes? Two flapper purses from his grandmothers? The knob from my dad's 1934 Ford featuring a photo of tiny me? Ok, I got the message from this modernist. I'll just check with his siblings. Vivian N. --Another Story-- The Auction Just an added side note and warning for everyone out there. Last week I attended and auction for my "Uncle Peter" (really he was my moms 1st cousin). He passed away last fall without leaving a will. The next of kin that were found by the lawyer were 2 step sisters he had never met that lived in New York (we are in Ontario Canada). They auctioned off 5 barn loads of his lives collection, along with personal items that he had that were my grandfathers - including his glass eye and numerous family photos, university ring and family treasures. Our family owned 3 turn of the century furniture factories and was very wealthy. Unfortunately, my immediate family and I could only afford to buy back some of our family photos - other treasures were sold to the highest bidders - with my Mom and my brothers and sisters looking on with tears in our eyes. It was so disheartening to not be able to afford buy anything else I am still reeling from the whole situation, as is the rest of my family. I will never look at an auction or flea market the same. Please take my advice and treasure what you have......make a will and never take anything for granted!.....Sally D. -- Comments, thoughts?

I have four sons, and he is the only one who turned out to be a fanatic collector like his mother. He has a particular liking for anything sterling, large or small. A drawer in his dresser is FULL of sterling jewelry of all types, collected at garage sales and flea markets everywhere. One piece, purchased when he was only 12 years old was a ring with a very unusual girls name carved out of the silver. (CHANNIE) Fast forward to last fall,when he became engaged to a wonderful young woman. You guessed it. Her name is "Channie." He had that ring for15 years- just waiting for the right finger to put it on. The diamond came the next week, but that little silver ring remains on her right hand, a treasure forever. It gives real meaning to the phrase "meant to be". Phyllis M. Cherry Hill NJ -- Another Story-- The Bells I grew up in a small village in England, and was raised by my grandparents. My mother died when I was three and my father was in the air force serving his time during the second world war overseas. We had few toys, but happily spent our days playing at the near by farm. In our large kitchen there was a Welsh dresser and strung between the two side pieces were a row of cow bells that my grandmother had hung. there were about 8 - perfectly tuned - that I was taught to play simple tunes on. How I loved those cow bells! When my grandparents died I didn't have enough money to go back to England to try to find them They were worth nothing, but to me a childhood of wonderful memories. Thanks for allowing me to share..... Lynne. --Another Story-- Nail Ring I am hoping that someone in Michigan can help me located a ring that my father made for my mother before they were married. It was when they were first dating in the late 1930's. He made it from a nail, a steel one, I believe, and it had a small heart with a script H A inscribed in the heart. He also had gold applied to the top of the heart area. I borrowed it one day and lost it, that would have been sometime in the late fifties or early sixties. Mother and Dad have been together for 70 years, if you include the 5 years they were engaged. I deeply regret borrowing that ring and losing it. Dad still talks occasionally about how he clamped the nail in a vise, bent it into a circle and flattened the head. He filed it to the same thickness all around the ring and then filed the head into the shape of a heart.He had a jeweler gild the heart. I would really love to be able to return it to him. Mother's memories are not as good as they used to be, but I'm sure she would remember this ring if we could find it. Thank you. Judy E. tjell@swbell.net -- Comments, thoughts?

I was born in 1943 and my grandmother lived with my family and I. We had fire places to keep us warm during the cold winter months. I remember the milk churn that sat by the fireplace to curd the milk to churn to make butter for the table. I was the oldest of nine children and I had some responsibilities as to watch over them when my Mother and Dad were working every day in the garden. My Grandmother taught me so much about mountain living, home remedies, canning, drying vegetables, curing meats and mountain cooking. I remember a pitcher that she always used for storing salt. It was placed on the top of the warming closet of the old wood cook stove. Many times when it was cold and the fire in the stove was burning hot for cooking, I saw the brown salt pitcher sitting there always full of salt for seasoning. We cooked beans and Granny didn't measure with a teaspoon, she just put her hand in and measured with her fingers. One day as I sat at the table and looked at the old pitcher I asked her where she got it. (My grandmother was born in 1886). She told me that it belonged to her Mother. I thought it must be old. It was brown, no markings except for the wafer background and pretty grapes with leaves. It would probably hold one half gallon. Years passed and one day I was at the old homeplace and It was cold and ice everywhere. I was going inside the old house and happened to look to my left where the roof drips. I saw the pitcher sitting on the ground full of water. I was so surprised that it hadn't broken because of all the ice. I picked it up and remembered how many times I had seen my mom and grandmother get a pinch of salt from this pitcher to season the foods they served. I brought it home. I still have it today. I have no idea how much it is worth or where it came from. It is a treasure to me. The milk churn is also mine now and I will never forget my grandmother churning butter as she told me stories about day's gone by...Trena -- Another Story-- Something Saved I've been working with some relatives on cleaning out a house and a couple of the ladies involved seemed to make some major headway on a day when I couldn't be there. After they left for their out-of-town homes, I started collecting the trash to put outside and found a bag with stuff they had tossed from underneath the kitchen sink. As I looked through the stuff, I found two bud vases which looked as though they had seen better days. Both were glass and both appeared to be discolored. But neither were chipped. Knowing that bud vases are easy to fix up quickly for someone who needs a flower, I figured I'd save both. I took them home and put them in my dishwasher and when I pulled them out, both were gleaming. ( I use Palmolive gel ). When I took a second glance at one of the bud vases, I saw that a flower was etched into the glass and when I looked at the bottom, I saw it was "Lenox."..Martha Altoona, Pa. -- Comments, thoughts?

I was born and raised in Newport News, Virginia which is where one of the largest Ship Building facilities in the United States is located. Somewhat like Pittsburgh being known for it's factories, Newport News is known for it's "Ship Yard". My grandfather worked there all of his adult life as did many other family members and sadly he also died there. I have many fond childhood memories of sleep overs at my grandparents home and "Nanny" bundling me up at the crack of dawn to take my grandfather to work so she could have their only car to drive that day. We would pick him up at the end of his long day. All the workers would come piling out of the gates at once after the whistle blew (yes there really was a whistle that blew) All the men seem to look alike wearing there hard hats and flannel shirts, your typical factory attire but I could always pick out "my granddaddy". My grandmother always packed "Granddaddy's" lunch and he would carry it in his old silver round top lunch box with the stripped thermos, the ones used in the 50's/60's. My Granddaddy died in the early 1970's and my Nanny lived well into the 1990's. Unfortunately, she suffered from Dementia and had to eventually be put in a nursing home. Afterward my Aunt helped "clean out" Nanny's home while my father and uncle worked full time ( it was their parents home & belongings) . My father got my grandparents bedroom suite and a few other items while the more valuable antiques and nicer items ended up with my cousin (I don't begrudge him, that is not what this story is about). When my parents went to help clean up the home before being able to sell it they had to retrieve the family pictures and albums from the garbage and luckily got some of the pieces of furniture before the salvation army was to have picked them up, as well as boxes filled with other personal belongings of both grandparents. One of those items being my Granddaddy's thermos and his safety glasses that he had to wear while welding the ships. I asked my dad if I could have those items and still have them to this day. I eventually was given one of the bedroom suites that was saved from being donated, it was my fathers when he was a young boy and while I will cherish those pieces of furniture they do not make my heart fill with the joy and love or invoke the memories of those early morning car rides to take my Granddaddy to work and picking him out of the group of men carrying his lunch box with the striped thermos at the end of his day. Those are memories of him that are mine alone and I keep them in a special place in my mind and my heart. Thank you for allowing me to share a happy moment of my granddaddy with you and the other readers. I hope they enjoy reading about my special memory as I often enjoy reading theirs. C-NJ -- Another Story-- Cataloging the past... Being the only child of my mother's entire generation, I have been fortunate to have inherited all the family heirlooms. Several years ago there was a fire in my home in WI and I realized that, though nothing was lost that time, there was always the potential for things to go wrong. I embarked on a project to catalog all the heirlooms with photographs and remembrances of why these things were important. I even did floor plans of the homes of my ancestors and indicated where furniture items sat in the home. Since beginning this project, I have inherited even more stuff, as my mother and aunt have also passed away. Needless to say, this is a huge project, but I have two sons who I hope will appreciate knowing that, besides simply being a valuable antique, for example, that the big block plane was hand made by their great, great, great grandfather and bears a stamp of his name and that he was recognized as one of the finest wheelwrights in the state of California. Many items in the catalog would not be considered valuable or even really collectible, but there is a story for each and every one of them that makes them priceless. I am also cataloging the items that I have purchased over the years so my sons will know something about them as well. I regret that no one in a generation before me thought to do something like this, as I'm sure there are so many stories I will never know. You hear a lot about provenance in the world of antiques, but there's no provenance like good old family stories. Karen L. -- Comments, thoughts?

We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - Leftovers I just wanted to share a response to Rita D.s summation that it isn't the "price" or " monetary value" of something that is handed down, but how you felt about that person, and how that object makes you feel, and remember! I grew up only a few miles on the farm from my grandmother, I saw her almost every day, and we were very close. When my grandparents retired they moved into "town". I still saw them very often. I lived with them when I went to nursing school, and that only helped me to grow even closer to them. My grandfather passed away about 10 years before my grandmother. When my grandmother passed away, my aunt (the only other living child) came and took all the antiques of "value", and believe me there were many. She then called me and told me that she was going to put everything else on auction and if I wanted anything I could have it. I was saddened by what my aunt called "leftovers". Hundreds of family photos, photos of my grandparents newly married, of my grandparents as young children, of their parents, and brothers and sisters, of my father and his childhood, and his brothers and sisters. Old Christmas ornaments and decorations, that I remember hanging every year and exactly where they were placed in their home when I was a child. Cards that were given to them, some made by my aunt and father, some by me! But what I loved the most, was an old green cup, that my grandmother used to keep in the sugar canister. I have such vivid memories of her using the cup to dip out sugar and sprinkling it on pies, or pouring it into grape jelly that she was making! I love this cup! It's value is nothing to anyone else, but to me it was (and is) everything! I cherish all the "leftovers" and the wonderful memories I have when I look at them. ..CAS. -- Another Story -- The Boots My father in law was like a dad to me. I was hanging about his house since I was a 15 year old girl. It became pretty normal for me to be a part of his supper hours, even at that young age. Things at my home were somewhat difficult as my parents were going through a divorce and I craved the normality of my best friend's (who later became my husband) home. When our first daughter was born in our late 20's, my father-in-law had just retired from a 40 year career of truck driving. He and his wife had raised five fine boys and at this point in his life, a tiny girl seemed to be a delight to him. Having a high work ethic, he also for the first time in his life, had lots of time on his hands. He fell in love with our daughter and both my mother-in-law and father-in-law cherished their time with her. When our second daughter was born 4 years later, she also became their special girl. Pop would call or visit most days and I was thrilled that our girls had such a loving relationship with their nanny and poppy. He had special nicknames for them and they always knew the sound of his truck several houses away. A couple of times per year, he would travel about - mini trips with his wife or his sons. I did not buy so-called 'fancy' shoes for our girls but as a stay at home mother, was more concerned with the basics. After bringing home a tiny sized pair of Buster Browns one year, he became the family "shoe" man and would measure the girls' feet before a trip and come home with granny boots, or work boots or fancy sneakers. They were always thrilled with his choices. It was a bit of a family joke that he would be carrying papers with pictures of feet on them in his pocket, measuring them against shoes whenever he got the chance. The thought of an older, truck-driving man, standing in a store aisle wearing his typical plaid shirt and corduroy pants complete with suspenders and measuring little boots in his big hands still warms my heart. Well, when our eldest gal was about 5, she took a hankering for cowboy boots. Who would know why? It was the only thing she was asking for that Christmas. They were nowhere to be had locally that year as we searched everywhere. Even in the church play, to the tune of On the First Day of Christmas, her singing part was a drawn out "one pair of cowboy boots." Fairly close to Christmas, my father in law was traveling and went into every store along the way, searching for the elusive cowboy boots. At one point, he called us and said "I FOUND them!" He wrapped them up and placed them under our tree "from Santa." The delight on our daughter's face that Christmas morning as she opened and then pulled on her fringed, PINK cowboy boots was a joy to all of us. As it turned out, Christmas morning was also a church morning. Our daughter accompanied us to church with a lovely Christmas dress on and you guessed it, cowboy boots. As we sat in the pew listening to our pastor preach, he caught sight of our daughter and stopped mid sentence. His next words were "Well, I can see that Alyssa finally got the cowboy boots she was asking for!" At that, he came down the aisle, picked her up and held up her feet for all the congregation to see the pink sparkly boots. Everyone laughed as they remembered her part in the play! She wore those boots with gusto and of course, eventually outgrew them but delighted in many more nice shoes and boots over the years from her poppy. The girls would tell him what was in style and true to form, he would do his best to fulfill their order. Sadly, my father-in-law lost the battle to cancer about 4 years ago and as a family, we all mourned heavily. Buying a pair of shoes for our girls as they went back to school that first year was an excruciating experience and all I could do was stand in front of the display and cry. I am sure that the salesclerk thought I had lost my mind! In our daughter's room on a nice shelf stands a small pair of pink fringed cowboy boots that have certainly seen better times. It is funny how things that you would think worthless...a worn, smudged pair of boots..could mean so much. When friends ask her about them, I have often overheard her say "oh, my poppy gave them to me." Only we know how much love and sorrow is mixed together in that statement. What a treasure it is for her, for both our girls to have such good memories of their grandparents. I am sure that the little pair of boots will always hold a special place on a shelf or dresser wherever she goes. Best Regards, Gloria -- Comments, thoughts?

Send them to newsletter@tias.com and we may publish it here . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - My father passed away in January of 2000 after a lengthy ordeal with cancer. He had been a minister, but had worked as a mechanic most of my life to support our family. He was a fun-loving person, always ready with a smile and a joke, but he was also a very old-fashioned fellow. I was a divorced mother of one girl at that time, and he loved Rachael like Jacob loved Benjamin. He took her hunting and fishing, taught her to shoot and purchased a shotgun for her that was for a "lefty" like he was, when she had completed the gun safety and handling course required by Washington State. (Rachael is the only one of his children or grandchildren that is left handed.) That gun, and the hunting gear she wore when she went with him, are among her most prized possessions now. But taking his daughter hunting had never even crossed his mind when I was growing up! Girls didn't do that sort of thing...until Rachael came along anyway, and then she was Papa's right-hand gal and nothing was prohibited! Its funny how people change when they become grandparents. Dad also felt a parental responsibility for her, because she was without a father at that time. When Dad became too ill to care for himself, Rachael and I became his care givers, arriving early in the morning to change the PICT line and the protein mix that he was being fed intravenously, and then coming after work and school to spend more time with him and to change the feeding bag again. When he was in the hospital I would always come by in the morning, go home and get Rachael and then come back to the hospital to spend time with him. Every morning he would brighten up when I came in and say "Hello, Angel!" When Dad realized that he was not going to beat the cancer, he and my mother decided to write their will. Dad agonized over what to leave me as the only girl in the family and his "angel". He left my brothers his hunting gear, his tools and his fishing things, and mother all of his personal things and valuables. Finally, he decided to give me his drill. That may sound humorous, but his power drill was the only one of his tools that I ever had asked to borrow. I'd used it to hang curtain rods and make small repairs around my home, so Dad made sure that I would get his power drill. He asked me if there was anything else that I wanted, and I told him that I would like one of his bibles. Mother insisted on keeping the bible that he used for preaching, so Dad left me the bible that he'd carried while stationed in Korea, instead. Six weeks after my parents had married, Dad had been drafted into the army and ended up spending 18 months in Korea. The bible's been wet due to the heavy rains in Korea and the pages are ruffled, the cover is very worn and some of the writing is blotted, but that bible is precious to me. What is strange is that when my father's eldest sister died, she left some of her personal things to me because she'd never had any daughters of her own. One thing she left me was a framed photograph taken of my Dad when he was a soldier in Korea. So I have two momentos of what was probably one of the worst times of his life! After he had passed away, I found in my car a flashlight that Dad had put there one evening. I didn't have one in the car, and he was always concerned about me being on the road and having a break down in the dark. I took very little notice of it at the time, but when I purchased a newer car later that year, I took the flashlight out and discovered that it was the one he'd used in the mechanic's shop to see under cars and into the motors when it wasn't light enough. The flashlight has his name carved into it, in his handwriting. That flashlight is one of my most valuable possessions, I have it tucked away and will not allow anyone to use it. Its not the stuff, its what the PERSON meant to us that left us the stuff that really is the most important thing. Things can be replaced, broken or lost. The things left,regardless of value, are not important, what counts is what value you placed on the giver...that's really where true wealth lies. I know many people who have inherited a lot of money from their deceased parent's, but they have never overcome the bitterness they felt toward them and the inheritance means very little. I'd rather have my drill, bible and flashlight than all their wealth! --Rita D. -- Comments, thoughts?

Send them to newsletter@tias.com and we may publish it here . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - Upon learning that my dearest friend in Ohio had one year to live after being told she had cancer, she called me and wanted to put her house in my name because her Son would not take care of it.I told her "no", she should give it to her Son. She asked me if she had any mementos that I would like. I was very bereaved at the time and told her all I wanted was a pair of decorative stuffed animal hunting foxes she always put out at Christmas time. Of course, after she passed on, her Son did not fulfill her wishes and did not give me the foxes.These foxes were over forty years old and could not be bought in a store. Fifteen years later, I was living in Texas and went into a Salvation Army Store about three weeks before Christmas and lo and behold, they had a pair of the identical foxes for sale. I asked how much they were and the lady said $l5 each. Finally, I gave her $25 for both. I had tears in my eyes and looked up to Heaven and said "Thanks" to my dearly departed friend.... Jeanne C, now living in Cincinnati, -- Another Story-- Will me a hammer. I love this story. It typifies the powerful imagery that an object can invoke in a person. I think everyone has a "hammer" somewhere in their past. My father had a wonderfully long life, filled with many people who loved him. Not surprising, as he was a kind, generous and loving man. During the last few years of his life, he gave away to his children, most of his personal treasures. So, when his children were gathered for the reading of his final wishes, I was surprised to find that he still had special things that he wanted each of us to have. When it came to my turn, his Will read, "And for Susie, I want her to have the ballpeen hammer." Our family is very loud and gregarious, so the silence in room was deafening. Suddenly a chorus of voices came at me, as everyone asked the same question, "A hammer? He wants you to have a hammer?" Smiling, I told them that I just couldn't imagine what Dad was thinking. We all laughed and agreed that maybe Dad was loosing it a little when he wrote out his final instructions. Later in the day, all of us were walking the property, when we wandered into Dad's shop. Dad was a machinist by trade. "A tool, jig and fixture builder." as I had often heard him tell people. Upon entering the dimly light structure, the smell immediately struck me, and I was transported back to a time when I was very little. The vision in my head was of myself, sitting on the cold hard floor in the family garage. My dad was tinkering at the work bench. I then flashed to the times I would walk down to the Five and Dime with my Nana, and with my allowance buy rolls of caps, made for the use in toy guns. I would bring these into the garage and get a hammer down from off of the wall, and hit these little red dots with the hammer. Pop! Pop! Gosh, I loved that sound! In a flash of olfactory memory, I remembered that Dad would always take the chosen hammer away from me, and replace it with a somewhat bigger hammer. Back in real time, standing in the dusty light of Dad's shop, I looked up and there it was.......a small hammer, hanging on a peg. It was a ballpeen hammer. I reached up and took it down, and I could feel the texture of the wooden handle and the weight of the cold steel hammerhead in my hand. As I turned it over in my hand, it seemed as if I could smell the acrid smoke from the caps. "This is it, this is it!" I proclaimed. My brother opened a side door to let in more light, and we could see that something was etched into the metal head of the hammer. "Made by Warren Killick, October 22, 1941". Dad had made this hammer 8 years before I was born. So... that is why he didn't want me smacking caps with it on the concrete floor. This little hammer is the physical and tangible expression of my father's love. He could not have given me anything more valuable, than the returned memory of those special days of childhood and the knowledge that they were very special to him as well.

My family has always told me about my Grandmother who used to scour thrift stores and garage sales to find clothing for her 7 children. This was during, and after the Depression. So, it wasn't in vogue then. But even when things improved financially she still loved to shop thrift and was a magnificent pack rat! I was the one who got her thrift "gene" and I also have always loved to "collect". When she passed on, I inherited some of her costume jewelery. I kept it for some time but finally realized I wasn't wearing some of it, so I donated it. Just a couple weeks later I dear friend presented me with a Christmas gift she had made for me out of salvaged beads she found at the very same Thrift store. She had no idea that the choker she made me had some of the beads from my Grandmothers necklace that I donated! I won't be donating this one! -- Comments, thoughts?

Debra pointed out that it is incredibly bad manners and disrespectful to covet the possessions of your loved ones. Having them here on earth with us is the most valuable gift of all. I would give anything to have my Grandmother Magdalene still here with me. She passed 24 years ago when I was 16 but I still think of her often, especially on her birthday. I think it is important to guide children and explain "respect for elders"..."the blessing of having l loved ones with us"... "the definition of coveting"... to them in a firm and gentle way. Ember in Texas. -- Another Story-- I'm writing in regards to your article. "when you die, can I have this?" Anyone who asks that of someone is totally selfish and disrespectful. It is a statement of someone's true lack of morals concerning a person's property. I have not had someone ask me this question regarding my property. BUT,,,, I did have people ask if they could have this or that when my mother died. One such person did this the day after the funeral. Some people may not think this behavior is wrong. To me it showed exactly what this person had thought of my mother and myself. And the real kicker of it all, this person was my mother's sister and my aunt. Greed and selfishness are what brings about the question "when you die, can I have this?" Ida --Another Story-- Funny that this was the subject this month because I sent out a letter to my family and friends this year asking them to pick out three things that would remind them of me in case I do not make it through my surgery. We all realize that this is just "THINGS" but my sister died at age 53 and I wish I had one of her "things" to look at and cherish and hold and cry with because although I will never forget all the wonderful times and some bad times I shared with my sister there is still something about physical evidence. I rest my case and I must say it is very interesting to see what reminds people of you. Happy and healthy new year to all. M --Another Story-- Our grandson, at eight, was going through a lot of things we own, telling me, the standard, "When you die, can I have this," Knowing that his mother would punish him if she heard him, I quietly suggested that he might want to change his sentence to,"When you aren't using that anymore, can I have it?" Well, over the years, it has grown to be quite the catch phrase in our family and we all have a good laugh. So remember, death doesn't have to be serious, but it sure is permanent, so if you have something to share, do it now, so you can enjoy it with them!!! Judy -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- When I Die #4 More stories from our readers about how they determine who gets what, when the owner passes on. Have you had any experiences like this? Tell us your story. Send it to newsletter@tias.com . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - I’ve been reading your newsletter for some time now. The articles re: disposing of one’s material goods often make me roll my eyes, particularly when I read: “When you die, can I have this?” I think asking such a question, regardless of age or circumstance is very poor manners. We were taught at a very young age not to covet things. In fact, once when one of us children said to our mother about her mother, “When grandma dies can I have this or that” our mother gave us a talking to that stuck with us throughout our lives and our relationships with family and friends. The gist was that it was very poor manners to predicate getting something in the event of someone else’s death. (What we really want is the person in our lives, not their things.) If we lived our lives in such a way as to be well thought of, perhaps we would be remembered by those who loved us with a remembrance. To receive something at someone’s death was not a right and should not be an expectation, but a surprise, an honor and a blessing, and it was to be at the giver’s choice rather than ours. If something was received, regardless of what the item was, be it large or small, inexpensive or expensive, we were to consider ourselves doubly blessed by the giver. Primarily for the giver’s love and respect shown to us in life, not by possible reflections of those feelings in things bestowed after death. If we received nothing but kindness, respect, admiration and love from family, friends, and acquaintances that would be the real treasure, enough for anyone’s satisfaction. It is interesting that each of us have never asked anyone for anything. But over the years, in our separate lives, by family and friends, we are often asked (individually) out of the blue, if we would like to have a specific item named by the giver while living. We each feel awkward at these moments, and have been surprised to find that we each answer in a like manner: “If you would like me to have it, I would be honored. Thank you for thinking of me.” Whether we receive something or not, we are never disappointed or left wanting. Except wanting to have the deceased person still in our lives. ....Debra -- Another Story-- Hi! I enjoy your newsletter so much! This morning one of your stories made me think.... I collected "everything" for years! Had a house full! Things given to me & others that I bought when we were out & about. One day a young friend brought her new baby over to visit me & she had a fit over all my Fiesta....she had been buying a little piece here & there and her family was giving it to her as gifts! She had loved Fiesta for a long time & hoped someday to have a wonderful collection! So that day I felt like I should give her my pieces! Why wait until I'm gone...that could be years! My only stipulation was that she enjoy them, use them & pass something of hers on to someone who will enjoy it. Since that time I've given away hundreds of things....it seems I always find more! Instead of waiting until I'm gone I get the enjoyment of seeing everyone enjoy the things now! And everyone knows that unless they REALLY want something not to mention it to me....because it will be theirs! I don't miss those things! I get so much pleasure knowing that they are so valued & loved by someone ho can enjoy them NOW!... Janet -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- When I Die #3 More stories from our readers about how they determine who gets what, when the owner passes on. Have you had any experiences like this? Tell us your story. Send it to newsletter@tias.com . We also want to hear any other interesting or unusual stories you would like to share with us that are related to collecting or anything vintage. - As a British reader, I really enjoy some of your quaint stories. Reta N reminded me of my Granny who used to label all her china, furniture etc, with the appropriate name. Unfortunately, my uncles used to quietly swap labels in order to maximize value; as my Dad lived further away and was not so materialistic, he sort of lost out. But they did do one thing right: when most of the stuff had been apportioned, there were a few small objects left over. These were each numbered and the brothers then took turns to pick a number from a hat. Very democratic, no arguments. And my father "won" a valuable silver box, much to the chagrin of the others, Merry Christmas, Tim Clarke Isle of Wight PO30 4JU United Kingdom -- Another Story-- My kids and my friends get back whatever I have enjoyed so much for so long. When I look at my possessions and gifts (no matter how small) I do not see the gift but the love of the person who sent it to me. When it is returned to them at my death I hope that it will be a reminder of me and that the love has come full circle.....Elizabeth B. --Another Story-- This year before Christmas, I had our young grandchildren over to make gifts for their parents. I asked them if they would like to make a gift of papier mache. They both asked, what is papier mache? I took out all the items that I had made out of papier mache and showed them what it was. I had made a cat and painted it white, with green eyes. Our 6 year old grand daughter fell in love with it. Out of the blues she turned to me and asked, grandma can I have the kitty cat after you die? I told her, that you love the kitty cat and he loves you. I gave her the kitty cat and it was a blessing to see, her face beam, it just lit up like a Christmas tree...Sarah G. -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- When I Die #2 Here is one readers idea for determining who gets what. Have you had any experiences like this? Tell us your story. Send it to newsletter@tias.com - I've really enjoyed the stories about children wanting to be sure they get some treasured object. I remember that when, as a child I would ask my grandmother for something 'when you die', she would always off-handedly say, "Well...put your name on the bottom of it..." and go on about her business. I never figured she really meant it so I never did - but when my little granddaughter began asking me, "Grandma, when you die can I have this?", I told her the same as I'd been told. It was fun keeping up the tradition. As she got older she stopped asking, but I began finding her name, scribbled on a piece of tape, stuck to the bottom of items I didn't even know she noticed (even a chair!). The other grandchildren never asked. One day I overheard her informing her younger cousins how the system worked...and soon I began discovering their names as well! I would pick up a knickknack or a bowl or a candlestick or a book and find a name there - and it was always interesting (and sometimes surprising) to see whose name it was. I began occasionally giving the 'asked for' items as birthday or Christmas presents. As they got older, I found fewer (but more expensive) choices were being marked. I figured they must have outgrown the game - until a year or so ago when I was doing some deep cleaning in the basement and rolled up the big wool rug that covered most of the floor...there, on a room-sized 'X" of tape criss-crossing the entire area, were all their names written very clearly in black magic marker!...Reta N. -- Another Story-- Future Collector An editors note for this story. A "pontil mark" is left by a glass blower, usually on the base of some vintage bottles. It is the point where the glass is cut away after the bottle is created. How about you? Do you have any unusual stories where a term used for collecting ended up being used in everyday conversation? Tell us about it. Send a note to newsletter@tias.com - My brother is an avid poison and bitters bottles collector , even writing and publishing a small book and price guide in the early 70's. The family never realized how much we talk about them until the day his three year old son Scott while pointing to his navel, was asked " what is that?" and he promptly answered "my pontil mark!".

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- Don't put it down Another story of things that almost got sold. After you read this story, tell us if you've ever had anything similar happen to you. Send your note to newsletter@tias.com A couple of years ago I was at my usual table I rent at a firearms show. A dealer I know came by as usual, and I asked his opinion on a family heirloom. The item in question was a Samurai Sword my father brought back from WW11, and will never be for sale, but I wanted to know as much about it as possible. The dealer is an expert on Samurai Swords, and was most eager to see mine and tell me a little about it. In order to evaluate it fully, he had to remove the handle. In order to completely remove the handle, he had to gently but firmly tap the hand holding the handle with his other hand. He removed his Rolex watch and placed it on my table to prevent any harm to such an expensive watch. Before he had removed the handle, another patron of the show came by, saw the Rolex, examined it, and asked how much I wanted for it! A very quick explanation to the patron, and my apologies to the dealer evaluating my sword saved my honor and my dealer friend's Rolex....Tom M. -- Another Story-- "When I die, Darian, I'll leave them all to you." Sometimes children don't want to wait for an interesting collectible item to be passed on to them. After you read this story, tell us if you've ever had anything similar happen to you. Send your note to newsletter@tias.com I have a small collection of beautifully-faceted, crystal ball paperweights that I keep on my dresser. Some years back, my then-five-year-old granddaughter Darian came for a rare visit from another state and saw them. "Ooh, Grandma, they're so beautiful! Can I have one?" As I was busy, I absent-mindedly told her, "When I die, Darian, I'll leave them all to you." I turned around just in time to see the reflection on her face of wheels rapidly turning in her head. She hesitated, then said, "Grandma, I have an idea. Why don't you give me one now and the rest when you go." Her young resourcefulness and the courage she showed in speaking her mind caught me off guard. The crystal paperweights meant something to her now, and might not mean the same to her later -- and she had correctly surmised that she might have to wait a long time to get them. "Alright, Darian," I told her. "Because you had the courage to speak up for what you wanted, I'll let you take one now." It was only later that I realized I would have missed seeing the look of joy on her face if I had made her wait "until I went" to get them." Diana R. -- Comments, thoughts?

It was an interesting lesson for this reader. After you read this story, tell us if you've ever had anything similar happen to you. Send your note to newsletter@tias.com Our community had built a two story building to house the Caring and Sharing facility. All churchs had gone together to build and have a one source for food, clothing and financial help. We had it open and operated a paying thrift shop as well. We grew and the expansion was needed for the second story. It was decided to build shelves along the outside walls for shoes on one side, and household goods on the other. My husband went early one cool morning to start to work. They had already stored somethings upstairs, so various buyers were up there too. /As he hammered away, he got hot and took off his favorite denim/jeans jacket with Navajo embroidery over both pockets in the front, and in the yoke of the back. He hung it on the end of a clothing rack, and continued to work. When closing time came at noon, his jacket was nowhere to be found. He went downstairs and asked the cashier, who remembered she had sold it for $2.00.!!!....

After you read this story, tell us if you've ever had anything similar happen to you. Send your note to newsletter@tias.com I knew the collecting bug had been passed on to another generation when one day my six year old Grandson came over with a beany-baby monkey. I asked him if he wanted to see Grandma's monkey from when she was a baby. I took the very well-loved monkey from the cupboard. His felt ears were completely torn off, his fur was thread bare in places but there was his ever present smile on his plastic face which still showed the pin holes inflicted by my older sister seeking retaliation after I broke her shell collection. I carefully handed it to him. He lovingly cradled it in his arms and said, "its really old Grandma, huh?" I said, "yes it is 50 years old." He lovingly looked from the monkey to me and back to the monkey and said, so sweetly, " So, grandma, what are you going to do with this monkey after you die." I turned around so he could not see my laughter and composed myself and told him I would of course give it to him. Janet T., Anaheim, CA -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- Finding Lost Items A favorite theme that keeps coming up is how items from the past, seem to make their way back to someone who cares about them. Here are two stories from readers. If after reading these stories, you find that you have a similar story you would like to share with us, please forward it to newsletter@tias.com We look forward to hearing from you. -- During the 1980's, I was a part-time antique dealer doing a dozen or shows per year. I was doing a show in Chester Connecticut one spring weekend. This weekend was the first warm day after a very cold winter, and the attendance was almost non-existent. Most of the time, the exhibition room had more dealers than customers. My partner and I took turns manning the booth while the other wandered the floor out of boredom. We were looking for potential bargains to add to our inventory. On one of my scouting trips, I entered the booth at the far corner of the room. This dealer had a large pen on parchment calligraphy work in a stunning gold leaf frame. The frame was one dealers dream of where it hasn't been "improved" with gold radiator paint. The calligraphy itself had a wreath, an eagle and a written tribute for over twenty years of service for a retiring teacher. It was dated 1845. But the most startling part was that the tribute was for an Edward Lee Suffern, my twin boys fifth great grandfather. In my former wife's family, there has been and Edward Suffern for the past seven generations. And this family is descended from John Suffern who founded Suffern, New York. I went over to the dealer to tell him of the connection to my family. The dealer said he had bought it at an auction in West Chester, New York. I wanted to buy it, but the $550 price tag was more than I felt I could afford, especially as I had sold nothing that day, a Saturday. Sunday was pretty much the same as I only sold a pair of art deco glass candle sticks for under $100. As the show was closing, the dealer with the calligraphy piece came walking over to my booth with the piece in his hand. He asked me if I would buy it by giving him a twenty dollar profit. He said he had paid $250 at auction, and I went home with it for the grand sum of $270. The item in now at the home of my son, the fifth great grand-son of that teacher. Bill J. Inverness Florida. -- Another Story-- My Daughter's Drowsy Doll Returns Home In 1972 Christmas was approaching and my daughter was 19 months old. Just old enough to pay attention to Christmas that year. I decided to go to the malls in Columbus Ga. where we lived and let her look at the baby dolls to get an idea of just what she'd love to find from Santa. There were so many wonderful choices but she wouldn't have any of the nicely dressed, frilly babies. She pitched a fit for this little doll with a polka dot print body. The doll was called "Drowsy Doll" and when her cord was pulled she'd say "I'm sleepy, and I want a drink of water". I made my way through the store and we did go back and purchase that doll for her. On Christmas morning she was elated. She didn't notice the tricycle or building blocks, only the drowsy doll in the doll bed. In 1974 we traveled to my mother in laws for a visit and somehow lost the doll while there. We searched everywhere and couldn't find it. Heart broken, my daughter cried all the way home. We couldn't locate a replacement for the doll and eventually, she got over it. When my daughter, Mechelle, was eighteen years old her grandmother's house burned down. About a month after the fire, we received a package. Inside was the old Drowsy Doll from the past, quite dirty but the same doll ! A note inside said "We found this doll in the base of an old chimney which was under the house when it burned. Thought it might belong to Mechelle." Now thirty-two years old, Mechelle keeps the Drowsy Doll on a special table in her bedroom. We imagine that one of her grandmothers dogs must have dragged it from the porch and hidden it under the house so many years ago. Thanks for listening, Lindsey -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- More Memories (Part 13) In the past 12 newsletters, we've been featuring stories from people who have strong memories about specific antique or collectible items from their past. We have another great one to share with you today. If after reading this story, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- My cousin, an only child, died in 1946 at age 18. Hoping to be of help and comfort to my mother's sister and her husband, my parents moved to be near them. I was just a tiny baby and grew up spending much time at both houses. A tall wooden (butternut) cupboard sat in one corner of the kitchen. The cupboard was built around 1865 by my uncle's grandfather as a wedding gift for his bride. As a small child it seemed to me the entire house revolved around that cupboard and its contents. In the upper, poured glass-doored half my aunt kept her dishes, a few glass collectibles and the metal woodpecker toothpick holder I loved to play with. But more importantly it was where she kept the dish of home churned butter and the blue and white Sleepy Eye pitcher that held homemade maple syrup we poured over our buckwheat pancakes. My uncle, a country veterinarian and farmer, got up at 4:30 to milk cows and then would come in for the same breakfast - every morning of his life - before heading out on "calls". In the lower portion of the cupboard was kept my uncle's vet record books, a small ceramic dish where he dropped his pocket change that I was occasionally given, and jars of my aunt's homemade strawberry, grape and black raspberry jelly with paraffin and rubber-banded wax paper covers. It was my "job" as a child to fetch a jar of jelly of my choosing for the table. Eventually the cupboard became filled with many other items: an entire collection of glass toothpick holders, the new china she bought in the 50's and some Fostoria. But nothing was as valuable in my mind as that pitcher of syrup and those jars of jelly. My uncle passed away in 1960 and in 1977 my aunt reconnected with and married her teenage "beau" when he became a widower. Combining households, many items were going up for auction. Not until after the list of items were published in the newspaper did I realize the cupboard was to be one of them. I was heartbroken as I didn't have the money to purchase it. I said nothing, but the morning of the sale my aunt noticed me lovingly touching the cupboard with tears running down my cheeks. She and her husband were obligated to continue with its sale, but they hadn't realized I had such a connection to that cupboard. With a twinkle in his eye my new uncle told me I should bid on the item until it was mine. "But I don't have the money". "Don't you worry about that at all. Just keep bidding." As time for it's bidding came closer my stomach was tied in knots. I staked my place by the cupboard and as bidding began I took a deep breath and raised my hand - again and again. I glanced toward my aunt. She nodded. It came down to me and one other bidder. The price climbed. I was shaking. I began crying. My aunt just kept winking and nodding to me as I continued the bidding. The auctioneer stopped and asked if I was OK. I nodded explaining how much that cupboard meant to me. Suddenly the other bidder walked away and the cupboard was "mine" - for a price higher than I had paid for my old, used car!. My aunt explained later the cupboard was their gift to me. The other bidder was an antique dealer from Chicago who told me the cupboard was worth four times my bid, but when he saw how much it meant he knew it should go with me. He left his card should I ever decide to sell. I still appreciate that dealer's kind heart, putting sentimentality above the almighty dollar. That cupboard has moved with me and my family many times, and is the one item I personally assure is packed and loaded carefully. It is now filled with many family heirlooms - including the Sleepy Eye pitcher! And when I open the bottom doors I still imagine I smell raspberry jelly. ......A Midwestern Subscriber -- Comments, thoughts?

We have another great one to share with you today. If after reading this story, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- I come from a family where my Mom reviewed all of our toys every year and gave many to Goodwill, against the wishes of the children! Mom would let us keep some for posterity, but for the most part we were expected to turn them over to Goodwill for charity. Mom sometimes even slipped extraneous books and toys to Goodwill so that we would not notice. Once I was older, I looked high and low through my old possessions to find an old Snow White book which I could not find. Oh well, I thought, these things happen. However, my Dad's secretary was at a yard sale in 2000 and spotted my old scribbled name in a Snow White book! She bought it (50 cents) and gave it to me for my 25th bday! It was both a nice find and a good reminder that one will benefit from what they give away... --Another Story-- As a young child, I watched with great fascination bread dough rising in a large bowl placed on a heat register in the hallway off our kitchen. Often my busy mother would forget her dough and it would cascade down the sides of the bowl creating a messy situation for clean up. The bowl was the largest size Fiesta red mixing bowl. My parents died when I was seven and the bowl, along with the household furnishings was sold. I, however, remembered that bowl with great fondness. A number of years went by and I was told that a distant relative, then a newly wed, had been the purchaser. I mentioned the bowl to another relative. Imagine my delight and surprise when that very bowl was gifted to me. It had some rim chips and a small fracture. Over the years since it has added some additional character chips. But, it has been a wonderful popcorn bowl and will probably be one heirloom item that my children draw lots for! I will not forget the kindness of relatives who restored an important piece of my childhood....Sandra M. --Another Story-- Editors Note...I want to thank this reader for their note. We try not to mix the commercial side of our business, with our stories, but in this case it's a nice story and I'll make an exception. I really love the stories in your newsletter. My mother started collecting the Bing and Grondohl Mother's day Plates for my grandmother. Every year she would buy the next plate, only she stared the collection a year late and the 1968 plate (the first and now the most expensive) was missing. My grandmother would never hang them all on the wall. When she died in 2001 my mother took all the plates and hung them up leaving a space for the first plate and that was never filled. This year on my mother's birthday my sister and I hunted down the 1968 plate through one of the vendors on your web site and purchased the plate and all five of her children chipped in and we completed the set. My mother burst into tears and promptly hung that plate. We couldn't be happier with the product, the service, the quickness of delivery and will purchase from your site again. But I look forward to the stories and the recipes....thanks for being there...Jan G. -- Comments, thoughts?

We have another great one to share with you today. If after reading this story, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- I love to read all the great articles about antique finds and stories behind them. The story from Robert about his mother's "haunted" cabinet made me think of a haunted-furniture story of my own. Actually, this story is about my aunt and uncle, who bought an older house in midtown Kansas City in th 1970s. This house had belonged to an elderly couple who died or left the house rather suddenly. I never knew the full story, but it must have been an accident or something. The family came and took some personal effects, but when my aunt and uncle bought the house, there was still food in the cabinets, jackets on the backs of chairs, and many pieces of antique furniture and miscellanea --old paintings, small sculptures, and the like. One of the pieces left was a beautiful antique mantel clock that no longer ran. They wound it up and tried to get it to run, with no success. They decided to take it to a clock shop for repair, but when they got it outside, it started running. Problem solved! They took it back into the house, and it stopped running. Took it outside, and it ran. Finally, they gave it to a neighbor, where it ran just fine. The bed in the master bedroom was also left behind. My aunt and uncle kept the bed frame but put their own mattress and box springs on it. When they laid on it at night, they heard sounds of a woman crying. Being very practical and religious people, they thought it must have been a defect in their mattress and not a "ghost." They bought a new mattress and box springs, and the bed still "cried" at night. They finally gave the bed to my uncle's brother, who put his own mattress and box springs on it--and reported that it still "cried" in the night. Before moving into the house, there were several repairs and updates that had to be made. They came by each day to do some work, but often couldn't open the doors. The key turned in the lock, but someone or thing was holding the doors shut from inside. They usually had to crawl in the windows to get in. Also during this time, tools kept moving from where they had left them or disappeared, showing up in plain sight later. After they moved in, these disturbances continued, but not as frequently. So many unexplained things happened that they finally started joking about their "ghost," though they never really believed in them. I did, though. When my parents were getting our new house ready to move in, my brother and I stayed with this family. I slept in a sleeping bag on my cousins' floor, and during the night I swear I saw their ghost. From where I was sleeping, I could see downstairs through the banister. I saw it come through the living room, cross the small foyer, come up the stairs, through the hall about 5 feet from me (!) and go through my aunt and uncle's closed bedroom door. I don't know whether it was the power of suggestion over a spooked 10-year-old, or really the "ghost," but I was scared witless and didn't sleep a wink. The next morning, I told my aunt I had seen something, and (very nonchalantly, I might add), she said, "Oh, you saw our ghost, did you?" Christi in Kansas City -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- More Memories (Part 10) In the past nine newsletters, we've been featuring stories from people who have strong memories about specific antique or collectible items from their past. We have another great one to share with you today. If after reading this story, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- I wait with anticipation each issue in order to read the great stories and gain a little more information from the articles. Thought I would share a "ghost" tale about a piece of furniture that is in my family. While my Father was stationed in England from 1964-1967, he and my Mother developed a taste for antiques and clocks. Their "obsession" became what is now a 30 year plus business and "hobby." They picked up many interesting pieces in England but nothing like the "olde chart cabinet." While rummaging with some English friends in a very small village in England, my Mother came across a piece of hand carved furniture, literally in pieces in an old barn. It was unrecognizable, covered in dirt, feathers, and who knows what else. My Mother, being the eternal optimist had to have the "pieces." She carted them back to base housing where we lived and began a 3 year process of restoring the piece. We knew nothing of the history of what the cabinet may have actually been used for. After many long hours and some very hard, dedicated work, my Mother transformed that pile of junk into an exquisite, restored, hand carved piece of furniture. It is in my opinion of museum quality. Standing almost eight feet tall with the top, there are two doors with glass on top of a storage drawer on the bottom. The cabinet is entirely hand carved and features a figure on each side of the cabinet that resemble sea captains or merchants with charts in their hands. We thus called in an old chart cabinet. The best is the drawer on the bottom. It too is hand carved and for the pull, there is a "gargoyle" or other creature that you must pull under his chin to open the drawer. I enclose a picture and hope you can somehow see the detail. After the restoration, my parents had retired in Denver, CO where they opened their antique shop. The cabinet stood prominently in our living room just in front of the entrance to the hall. We first started noticing a few odd occurrences when our poodle, Charlie, refused to walk in front on the cabinet. He would literally take a flying leap across the space or make a very wide circle when he was going doing the hall. If not traveling by the cabinet, he would sit and glare and growl at the piece. Shortly after this started, my parents were entertaining friends in our home. While my parents were fixing a snack for everyone, their guests suddenly got up and "had to leave." They gave no explanation and left in a hurry. After a couple of days, they started calling saying they were just checking up on my parents. They would not speak long but always seemed agitated and in a hurry. They eventually came by my parents' shop and my Mother corralled her friend and got the story. While my parents were in the kitchen, the woman had gone to the restroom and passed by the cabinet. As she did, she said she got a cold sensation and felt she was being watched. Several minutes later, her husband also got the same feelings. As they were discussing this, they both looked at the cabinet and said they distinctly observed a "cavalier" or sailor come out of the cabinet and proceed down the hall. That was all it took - they were out of there. After that, my Mother had several "dreams" in which a "cavalier" tried to talk to her or awaken her. On one occasion she swears something was pushing her down on the bed in an effort to get her attention. She claims they were NOT dreams as she was fully awake. My Mother at that time had a friend who was a psychic, or claimed to be, and she was asked over to the house and given no information as to why. Millie immediately said she sensed a presence, although a pleasant one, and that it seemed to come from that cabinet. To this day, that cabinet still stands in my Mother's home and it is her and my most cherished piece. Was it or is it still haunted? I'm not sure I really want to know. Regardless, it hopefully will be in my family for many generations where I and my descendants can tell about the "olde haunted chart cabinet." Best regards, Robert -- Comments, thoughts?

We have even more to share with you. If after reading our stories, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- I grew up in a small town in Virginia where one walked almost everywhere. During a time when my Father was diagnosed with cancer and I was told he would not live much longer, Dad wanted to make my dreams come true. My only dream was to have a pony which we picked out together and boarded at a stable near the house. Every day after school for about 5 years, I would walk to the stable to care for and ride my pony and every day I passed a simple brick house with the most colorful window display of small colored glass vases and pitchers. Red, green, orange, yellow, purple, blue as well as blended colors. I loved the shapes and colors. I could recite the window's content by item and color for years, seeing them everyday when I walked to and from the stable to take care of my pony. Years later when home one weekend from college, Mom told me of an evening auction in a nearby town. I had never been to an evening auction before so I went. As I walked in the door of this reconverted barn, the auctioneer was just beginning to accept bids on a tray full of glass. Having only seen the contents of the window of colored glass at about 20 feet, I knew instantly that this was "MY" window! The auctioneer was calling for the bidding to end when I started waving at him like a woman possessed from the doorway in the back! He smiled, accepted my bid, and shortly thereafter, with no further bids, the auction ended. I didn't even have a bidding number yet so I hurriedly registered, got a number, gave it to the attendant and accepted my precious tray of colored glass. Although I've moved many times in the past 30 years since buying this lot, they always are placed in my home in a window you can see from the street where the light shows them best. Recently while dusting those precious pieces, I sat and cried not with sorrow but with joy. You see, Dad beat the odds with lung cancer living another 43 years past what any doctor ever predicted and only recently passed away. But with that group of colored glass, I remember those early years of my childhood when my Dad made my dream come true and a neighbor daily brought a bright spot to a child's life at a difficult time.....Sandra K. --Another Story-- From age 1 through 5 my Mom and I lived in a house in Ripon WI with my Great Uncle, Grandma, and an Aunt. On weekends my Great Aunt Margaret would come up from Milwaukee to help care for her brother, my Great Uncle. We all thought of her kind of as the matriarch of the family. She always spoke her piece, but was there to help too. When I was 12 she took me on my first actual trip. To South Dakota, to see family as well as the sights. One thing I always remembered about her was a certain charm bracelet she wore. You always knew when she was going to walk into a room as you could hear the charms jingling. There was, unfortunately, a period of time in my teens when we had a disagreement and didn't talk for a few years, but as I grew up we became closer again. A few years ago she had started to give away some of her things, and also had told various relatives that if there was anything special they wanted they should let her know. I told her that the only thing I wanted was to be able to have the first chance at buying the charm bracelet I remembered when she was ready to part with it. Was I ever surprised when Christmas Eve 1999 I opened my present from her and there was the bracelet! I couldn't say much, just burst into tears. There was the charm from when we went to South Dakota, one from when she went to Hawaii, some from when she visited Europe, etc. I had always wanted to sit down with her and make a list of exactly where each charm had come from but unfortunately left it too late. She passed away early this year at the age of 98. But I have not only the bracelet to remember he by, but some unforgettable and cherished memories. Don't leave some things go too long. The people we feel will live forever don't. She did have a long full life but it seemed to be the end of an era when she passed. God bless you all!....Cheryl K. -- Comments, thoughts?

We have even more to share with you. If after reading our stories, if you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- My maternal grandparents lived on a farm in rural Georgia, just north of Waycross. My grandfather raised tobacco and also had a turpentine business. Nearer the house was a large garden and they always had chickens. When I was about 5 or 6 years old, we lived on the dirt road that wound around behind my grandparents house, about a mile away. So, I was very close to my grandmother as I often visited with her. Even when we moved away, we still visited them quite often. One of the favorite memories I have about my grandmother involved an old trunk she had in her bedroom. Both she and my grandfather each had one in which they kept their personal belongings. Their house, like many of that era, did not have closets, so trunks and "chiffarobes" were used for clothing and small personal items. My grandmother's trunk had a large tray in the top in which she kept things like; her fine embroidered hankies, hairpins, her Ponds face powder, Sunday gloves, etc. But, the one item which always attracted my attention was a stack of small, colorful cards which Grannie called her "Sunday School" cards. They were about 3in by 2in and each had a lovely picture on the front. On the back was a scripture verse and a couple of paragraphs telling the Bible story that accompanied the picture on the front. If my cousin (who lived with my grandparents) and I were very good, sometimes on a rainy day, Grannie would allow us to look at her prized cards. It was only after her death that I realized how truly special these little cards were. I had always wondered who had gotten them, but just assumed they had gone to one of her daughters. However, after a family Christmas gathering, one of my aunts told me that she had something for me. She handed me an old cardboard box with handwriting which I recognized as my Grannie's; it said, "Sunday School Cards". I was thrilled!! After I got home that day, I took the little cards out and examined them for the first time in over 40 years. It was then that I realized what a "treasure" I really had. The earliest card was dated 1901 - my grandmother would have been 3 years old! The most recent card was dated 1918 - she was 20 at that time. There was over one hundred of them! So, Grannie had been saving her prized "Sunday School cards" since she was only 3 years old. How she must have treasured them to have kept them for over 85 years (she died at the age of 88)!! I have added my own handwritten note to the old box containing the cards - it's a note to my two sons and says, "your great grandmother collected these cards from the age of 3 and she valued them enough to save them for more than 85 years. They are to NEVER be separated and are NEVER to leave our family", love Mom. So, Grannie's cards continue to be a treasured part of her extended family. We will love and cherish them just as Grannie did all of her life. Judy S. Jacksonville, Fla. --Another Story-- At the ripe old age of 5, my father came home one day with a secretary desk for me painted black and a new electric train set for my brother. I was too young to experience jealousy or envy but I still remember the shiny train compared to the dull, black desk. My father told me that this was something that I would use for a long time to come. Night after night he painstakingly removed the layers of old paint and varnish with my assistance. I handed him clean rags and disposed of the dirty ones. Spending that time with my Dad made me feel so special. One day our hard work revealed the solid oak finish underneath. And I remember thinking how lucky I was to have a desk of my very own because even at that age I was doodling in every book I could get my hands on. Through grade school, junior high and high school I used this desk...to do homework, to write love letters, to send cards to friends who needed an encouraging word, and even now at the age of 52, my secretary is still my most cherished possession. Though I know when I leave this world I cannot take this with me, nothing can ever rob me of the memories I have of Dad and I working on this project together. And how much more precious these memories will become whenever the Lord decides to take Dad home with him. And the train set my brother got - who knows where that is today?

Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- When I was around two years old, for Christmas, I received a Fisher Price Joey "lap doll". It went everywhere I did. It was lost and we were not able to find another one to replace it because they had become hard to find. (way before the days of Internet. When the doll was lost, he was missing his little blue jacket. I have kept it all these years in a box with other childhood memorabilia. My Mom sent me an email saying she had found one on an on-line auction. It took some research because we didn't even remember what the doll was called. He was affectionately remembered around our house as "the little boy doll". I went on-line to take a look and it was perfect! The best thing about the doll? No, it wasn't mint. Even better. The picture of this "little boy doll", who I know now is named "Joey", sat staring at the camera, freckles across his nose, missing only his little blue jacket. It is as if my very own doll was somehow rescued and waiting for me to reclaim him. I went and pulled the little jacket out of the box to show my husband. He was raising his eyebrows at me but was also a little impressed. Naturally I bid on and won the doll. And the "Little boy doll" should be arriving in the mail today or tomorrow. I will promptly put on his blue jacket and he will be complete! Very few times do we get to reclaim a small piece of our childhood and hold it in our hands. With on-line auctions we can bid on our memories and have them shipped to our door. Isn't the 21st Century great?....Joy A. --Another Story-- I guess this may not be as interesting to others as it was for me...several years ago I attended a local auction...I live in a small rural city in central Texas ...at this auction I purchased a box lot of books...what caught my eye in this lot I really don't remember...In this lot of books was a diary...all handwritten in German....The diary was leather, very expensive and the name Heyen monogrammed on the front....the best I could make out of the diary were dates that were from the mid 1800's to the early 1900's...The diary sat on my bookshelf for about a year...I decided that the my bookshelf needed cleaning ...and of course, I had to decide what to do with the diary...Just out of curiosity, I looked up the name Heyen on the internet...the name came back with only 3 names...I called the name that was listed in San Antonio Texas... since they were closer...Told them about the diary, and the book, and was sending it to them free of charge...of course the person on the other end was rather apprehensive...to make a long story just a little shorter...the diary actually belonged to the family that I called in San Antonio...Mr Heyen had the diary translated..I was told that the information contained filled in many many years of lost history for their family...I believe the diary is now in the Galveston Historical Museum as it contained many stories of Galveston prior to and just after the 1903 Galveston hurricane....I have often thought without the advent of the internet, this would never have happened... P.S....You can just imagine the cards and letters I have received from the Heyen family....Linda W. -- Comments, thoughts?

Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- This story has a little different twist, thanks for letting me share it. My grandparent had a farmhouse in northern Michigan. I remember many wonderful Forth of Julys spent there. They were short of money one summer and refused to take any from my dad. So he offered to buy their Edison Amberola and they agreed. It came with all the cylinder records, almost 3 dozen. The farm house was full of all the oak furniture that was popular early in the century, but in the 1960s we all thought it just looked old fashioned. At that time, that wasn't a good thing. My grandfather died that September and my Grandmother was moved to Battle Creek. The farmhouse was rented out to a young couple, who made the rent payments for the first few months. After 3 months of no rent, my aunt went up there. They had taken all the furniture out of the house and sold it to an antiques dealer and moved to California. So the Amberola became the only piece left, and my parents gave it to my husband and I as a wedding present 12 years ago. The "Yes, We have no Bananas" is my favorite song. And the Amberola is the centerpiece of our great room....Cindy B --Another Story-- As a child, I spent much time with my Grandfather. Although I was a little girl, he always took me fishing with him, go to the beach and just walk and look for priceless treasures. Times I will never forget. I was a little tomboy and he called me his "Punkin Seed." This name stayed with me always. When I was in my 40's, my grandfather passed away. I was crying and said to my husband, "I know this is silly, but no one will ever call me Punkin Seed again." I can't explain how that hurt. A couple of months later, a friend talked me into going to a large Christmas Bazaar. Something I really did not want to do because of the 3 hour drive and not feeling into Christmas because of my loss of Grand dad. As we walked through the bazaar, something drew me to a booth with a lady that had made beautiful porcelain dolls. Dolls were never something I played with, but I was looking at her dolls. I picked up a doll that had blond hair, blue eyes and little blue overalls. Just like me as a child out with Granddad. The tag read that the dolls name was "Punkin Seed" I feel apart and trying to hide as the tears ran down. The lady that had made the dolls approached me and I apologized for my behavior and explained about the doll. She told me it was ok and to take my time hiding in the corner! After regaining myself somewhat, I thanked her and walked out of the booth and down the aisle. About 25 feet away, someone tapped me on the shoulder. It was the doll lady. She handed me Punkin Seed and told me to take her. That the doll would mean more to me than the money would to her. Then we both cried. I will never forget the kindness of this special lady. 12 years later, Punkin Seed is in a glass case and sits beside my bed. I think of Granddad and thank this special lady daily....Laura -- Comments, thoughts?

In this edition we have even more to share with you. If after reading our stories, you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- My mother started collecting milk glass in the 1950's. She had one particular covered dish that she used as a candy dish. It was always filled with M&M's. When any of the grandchildren visited they always made a bee line for the candy. While they were small, they waited until an adult carefully removed the lid so that they could reach in and get a fist full. If my dad's prized bird dog, Deacon, was in the house, my dad would remove a M&M from the bowl and place it on the dog's nose and have him hold the pose until dad said "get it Deacon" at which time the dog would toss the piece of candy in the air and catch it will he was taking a pill. This trick was followed by squeals and giggles from the kids. As the the eight grandchildren grew up the dish was NEVER without M&M's. Even as adults they made a bee line for the dish. How she always managed to keep it filled I do not know but as you can see there were lot's of memories surrounding that candy dish. My mother went into a nursing home in the mid 90's and the dish was packed away. When she died in 1998, my sister asked all the grandkids if there was anything they wanted from her estate. My middle son asked for the dish. My sister granted his request but because he lives out of state, has not gotten the dish to him (just procrastination, she is good to her word) but the dish in the mean time has suffered a break to the handle and had to be repaired. Broken or not my middle son looks forward to receiving his dish. In the meantime a few weeks ago I was reading your newsletter and got thinking about that dish. I knew that my other two boys were sorry they had not spoken up for the dish. There was a link on your site that very day for "milk glass" so I clicked on it and in the search box typed in: "covered dish +grapes" . That was about all I could remember. Lo and behold a list with pictures came up and as I scrolled down the page there was mom's dish!! The ad read "Just Listed"... Westmoreland Milk Glass Panel Grape Covered Candy Dish is in excellent condition, no chips or damage. $45. I never bartered on the price I just clicked and ordered. I was so excited. It was even from a dealer in Ohio which is were my mother lived! So this Christmas my youngest son is going to receive "his grandma's candy dish" and all the the memories that go with it. My eldest son, who is on the USS Enterprise over in the Persian Gulf this Christmas will just have to wait until I locate another one of "grandma's candy dishes". By Christmas 2004 I hope to have one under the tree as a surprise for him. That way all three of the boys can have M&M's on hand for their own grandchildren and tell all the stories that go with it! What fun! Thanks for allowing me to share this story and for your part in making memories come true!...Sincerely, Nancie L., Mesa, AZ --Another Story-- In regard to the story about the Wishbone or "Pulley Bone" in Collectors newsletter # 183 http://www.tias.com/newsletter/stores-tiasstuff-collectors-newsletter/2230 We received a large number of responses. Evidently a crochet covered wishbone is not really that odd. Several of the responses that were sent in, mentioned that they were commonly used as thimble holders. - WE, HERE IN TEXAS CALL IT A WISHBONE.......AND IT WAS QUITE THE THING TO CROCHET AROUND THE WISHBONE, AND PERHAPS IF JUDY WOULD CLOSELY EXAMINE THE CROCHET WORK, SHE WOULD SEE THAT IT HAS A SMALL "POCKET" IN THE MIDDLE......THAT WAS FOR HOLDING A THIMBLE IN GRANDMA'S SEWING BASKET.----I HAVE TWO OF THE THIMBLE HOLDERS,,, LEFT OVER FROM THE EARLY 40'S, MADE BY MY GRANDMOTHER.....AND TRULY TREASURE THEM. DMOF. --Another Story-- My late husband was a wonderful eccentric. He was a 1st-class packrat and after 25 years of marriage, I learned to just let him enjoy himself. When he died, I had the pleasure of discovering treasures all over the house where we had lived for 22 years. As the years went by, I found myself wishing Roger had bought a big life insurance policy. My salary wasn't cutting it, so I decided to try my luck at online sales to make a little extra cash. This is where the packrat thing becomes more of a blessing than a curse. I discovered that there were collectors (and online buyers) for everything that should have been thrown away long ago. Believe it or not, there was a market for glass 2-liter pop bottles. And believe it or not, Roger had built a wall out of those bottles in our basement back in the late '70s. While all his family and friends were winking and making "screwball" gestures about how NUTS he was, Roger said cheerily - "hey these glass bottles will never last, they're way too heavy and expensive to make - they'll be collectors items!" Well, he was right. They only made them in 1978 and 1979 and everyone but us threw them away! So, I got my insurance policy from Roger after all, bless his heart. I had 400 of those bottles, and sold the first one for $50. I met one older gentleman on eBay who had been a long-time soda bottle collector -- he just had to make the 200 mile trip to actually lay eyes on this wonder of wonders! It really tickled me to see his face when he got a look at that wall of bottles! He ended up taking a good quantity home with him! ...Cheryl W -- Comments, thoughts?

In this edition we have even more to share with you. If after reading our stories, you suddenly remember one of your own, please share it with us, and maybe we will publish it here. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- When I was a little girl, I used to enjoy going to grandma's house. She would have family reunions and we all would sit in the dining room and enjoy a full-course meal. The dinnerware she would use would be the dishes and the glasses she would keep in her old Napanee Dutch Kitchen Cabinet. The cabinet seemed to fascinate me for some reason. When I grew up and got married, I mentioned to grandma that I would love to have her cabinet if she ever decided she'd like to pass it on to someone in the family. One day grandma called me and told me to come and get the cabinet, so my husband, his nephew and I went to pick it up. Well as time went on, grandma couldn't take care of herself and she didn't want anyone living in the home to take care of her, so my dad had to have her put into a nursing home in North Carolina. She is still there today. She is 94. I still have her cabinet in my house and it holds my Passover dishes and Matza. In this cabinet it has a large sifter that I use when I make my homemade challah for Shabbat. Every now and then I write to grandma and tell her that I am still using her cabinet. I will cherish it all the days of my life. --Another Story-- In 1957, my parents and I moved to Canada from England, and plunged from a middle-class lifestyle to abject poverty. I was eight years old. Planning for that first Christmas in Canada was so sad! I had never been to a public school, never lived in a house that was other than nice, never worn clothes from the thrift shop and never eaten so many poverty meals. It was a very difficult time. My mother was working 12 hours a day to make a virtually abandoned house into a home by Christmas, and , in her spare time, making candles colored and scented with all her lipsticks. My dad was picking holly for the princely sum of 75 cents an hour. On display in the local grocery store were a pair of gorgeous dolls--a bride and a bridesmaid. They were two feet tall, and had wonderful sparkling gowns and high heels. They cost $10.00 each. I whinged for them every time we went to the store, but, of course, buying one was out of the question. We were wrapping up tubes of toothpaste to give each other for presents! I gave up. Somehow, on Christmas Eve, my dad managed to scare up $10.00. Maybe he got a Christmas bonus from work; I don't know. He went to the store, but the only dolls they had left were the two display models. Because they were not in their boxes, and had been handled a lot, Dad got them both for his $10.00. I got the bride and my best friend got the bridesmaid. I kept the bride doll for many years, but, eventually, it got lost. I saw the same doll about five years ago at the antique mall, with a price tag of $75.00 on her. I couldn't justify spending that much, so I let her go. A year or so ago, I saw another at the Collector's Mart for $40.00. I didn't buy her. Every time I went back there, I saw her, still there. Finally, when her clothes were starting to unravel, I bought her for $30.00. I stashed her in the back of my closet and haven't even showed her to my husband yet! I'm going to fix her up and put her under the tree this Christmas. I don't know if I ever thanked my Dad properly for that gift so long ago, but maybe my gesture will find its way to him, now that he's gone. Veronica P. --Another Story-- I love yard sales. One day a number of years ago, I bought a sack of crochet thread that I thought my mother would enjoy. In the bottom of the sack was a chicken's breast bone, i.e. pulley bone with a fancy crocheted cover one inch deep completely covering the bone. My husband and I laughed until tears rolled down our faces. Imagine sitting and crocheting a cover for a pulley bone! So my husband brought a plastic case, I made a covered back and we framed the entire thing. It sits by our front door on the coffee table and is a constant source of amusement to our guests. We invite our guests to make up stories about why they think someone would do such a thing. That was the best ten cent buy I've ever made... Judy A. -- Comments, thoughts?

Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- My parents divorced when I was six and were separated about two years prior to that. During those years my sister and I lived off and on with many people but most often with our father’s parents. My grandmother had a mirror backed wooden shelf with Hummel figurines on it in the den that had our bunk beds in it. The shelf hung beside my top bed where I could see the precocious children. I didn’t have many friends so I would lie there and daydream that those cheery little kids were my friends and make up stories where I shared in the fun things they were doing. When we moved across the country I didn’t see my grandparents for five years. I was so happy when I finally visited them again and saw that my grandmother still had the shelf and cute children statues. I told her I remembered them and their significance to me and she told me they were called Hummels. From that day forth I have had a passion for the little figurines that has nothing to do with their monetary value. N. DeBlock --Another Story-- When my grandmother was young her family was very poor. Her father ran off and left her mom with four young children. They had no money for toys. One day though the town was having a raffle. The prize was a doll. Tickets were one cent each. Too much said my Great-grandmother. Well the guy told her he had two tickets left and would give her both tickets for the penny. She bought them and won the doll for my grandmother. Being it was the only toy she had she treasured it. Now it is my most prized possession as she has passed it down to me. It is what has inspired me to start a doll collection for my daughter. Debbie S. --Another Story-- As a small child we visited my grandmother Inman in Petersburg,In. This was in the late 50's. She had many wonderful things that occupied my time. One being her shopping basket that I would push up and down the sidewalk for hours at a time. But the one thing that fascinated me most was her cowboy clock. It sat on a table by her front room window. There was a cowboy all decked out in his chaps and standing next to him was his horse. the clock was inside a horseshoe and the cowboy's hand rested on top of the horseshoe holding his lariat. The lariat turned with the second hand of the clock. When Grandma passed the clock came home with us and as happens it disappeared along the way of life. I always talked about this clock and wished I had it. My husband and I take road trips and visit yard sales and flea markets wherever we find them. I had always said how I hoped some day I'd find my clock and it happened!!! I was looking at items in a flea market not finding much. As I turned to leave there he sat. Instant tears. I would have paid any price they were asking!! I have my clock minus his lariat and needing repairs but I could care less about that. He now has a proud place in my home and every time I see him I'm at grandma's in Petersburgh in front of that window. Thank you for letting me share even if you decide not to publish my letter. I enjoy the newsletter very much. Keep up the good work!! Thanks Again ....Wilma -- Comments, thoughts?

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- The Memories Within In response to our request for stories about precious objects that inspire special memories, we received a huge response. Here are a few of them. If after reading these stories, you would like to share your experiences with us, please send them to newsletter@tias.com ....Keep them coming :-) -- As a small child I remember a small plaster figurine that my mother had which had belonged to her mother. It was of the 3 monkies, seeno evil , hear no evil and speak no evil. My mother kept it on her windowsill in the living room. On the bottom were scratched 3 sets of initials which belonged to a very dear uncle of mine and his 2 friends. I used to dust it off carefully when helping mom with the housework. Well shortly after I married my husband and had a home of my own I asked mom where it was. I didn't think it had survived myself and 4 brothers. Mom gave it to me to keep in my home. The special part was that the uncle who's initials were carved in the bottom was one of the kindest gentlest persons and held a very special part in my heart and memories. Well to this day the figurine sits near my computer and I still remember the memories of my childhood it holds. Mary R. --Another Story-- I grew up seeing a Wallace Nutting print on the living room wall.(didn't know that was his name then) It was a beautiful fall scene /w a tree and vibrant colors. I was always drawn to it. My mother said they'd received it as a wedding gift in 1939. Twenty-five years ago I went to my first house-sale and as I walked down the hall, right in front of me was a Wallace Nutting and I was hooked. I bought that one, and I have a total of 22 now on my living room wall. I find them to be comforting as they bring back all good childhood memories Leslie S. Clinton, NY --Another Story-- My paternal grandmother and grandfather spent most of their lives on a small North Carolina tobacco farm just outside the small town of Lucama. I spent many Sunday dinners, and almost all Fourth Sundays with my dad's family. We went to a tiny Primitive Baptist church which only had services on that day each month. As was common in those days, the preacher traveled among 4 churches. Sunday dinners were always special at my grandmother's house. She was a great cook with a wonderful garden, and she was the kind of hostess who really knew how to please her guests with wonderful fresh salads and fried chicken and many bowls of vegetables from the garden. Fresh tomatoes in season--one dish sliced and the other served in sugar and vinegar--were always a treat. Cukes served in a similar fashion were always welcomed as well. And one of her orange cake slices for dessert was a pure taste of heaven! (Her cakes were always ugly--the ugliest when we took dinner on the grounds at the PB Church-- but also the most sought-after thing on the table.) She never sat down for a meal. She would always join us for the blessing, but never took a bite herself until her guests had dessert. One reason for this was that we usually seated 8-10 people in a room that would barely accommodate the well-worn round oak pedestal table and the chairs. To serve, she would fill the table to capacity and then hand in things that would not fit from the kitchen. Once dessert was served, she would stand and eat her dessert--which was always the first component of her meal. She would always jest that if she died before the end of the meal, she had eaten the best part before she when to meet her maker. At her death, the table and chairs were one of the cherished things that made it into my home. It was stored in a barn until I got married and then it came to me. For 18 years, I have enjoyed serving my family and friends there. The scuffed legs from the many children who rubbed them in that little dining room did not bother me, nor did the worn table surface, which was usually covered with the lovely pineapple tablecloth my arthritic Godmother made for me before her death. I thought many times about having it restored, and even found a wonderful and reliable refinisher who would do the job and replace the missing leaf, but there never seemed to be enough money for that project. As my family is moving to the coast the weekend and into smaller accommodations, I lamented to my dad last Sunday that I really hated not to keep the table, but there would be no space to use it in our condo. He pondered only for a second before asking me about the man who could restore it. My memory has been saved as he decided to sell his dining room table and use this one instead!

Contents: 1) Stories from our readers -- The Memory Within For many people, they collect because of the memories inspired by the objects they collect. All of us have deep memories within us. Sometimes they are triggered by a smell or a phrase, but many times they are brought alive by a simple object from our past. To collect these things is to hold onto something dear and precious from the past. How about you? Tell us your story of some small vintage item that you remember from your past that has strong memories. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- When I was a child, my Mother always kept a milk glass covered dish on the dining table, which had a lion reposing on top of the lid. I am now seventy four years old, and have now lost my parents and siblings, and husband. Somehow that dish has taken on a greater meaning to me in these past few years, as it has become a symbol of my childhood. I have no idea where it wound up after my Mother stopped keeping house and gave up most of her furnishings, but I recently was able to purchase one on E Bay, and I am anxiously awaiting it's arrival. While it won't bring my family back, it will bring back my childhood memories as I walk by it as it sits on MY dining room table. Carolyn P. New Smyrna Beach, Fl. --Another Story-- Nothing Stopped Her Auctions can reveal interesting traits in people. Sometimes they can reveal much more. How about you? Has anything odd ever happened to you at an auction? Tell us about it. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- My grandmother was an "auction groupie" and bought and sold antiques as a hobby. She would be the first one to arrive and the last one to leave..always sneaking home late and hiding her treasures from my grandfather for several weeks..then placing them around the house until he noticed..at which time she would say, "I've had those for quite some time..you just didn't pay any attention." At one particular exciting auction, she was bidding against a dealer for a particular "one of a kind" antique. She got so excited bidding, she jumped up from her chair, hand thrusted in the air, and promptly lost her underpants.. falling from beneath her "auction dress" into a puddle around her ankles. Without missing a beat (or bid) she calmly stepped out of them, picked them up and stuffed them in her bag. She won the item and applause from the crowd for her unwavering determination. She also made the newspaper the next day and became very popular at subsequent auctions....Kay --Another Story-- Released From the Attic This reader had an interesting experience with a place from his fathers past. How about you? Have you ever had a piece of your past find its way back to you on its own? Tell us about it. Send your story to newsletter@tias.com -- A few years ago I was surveying the neighborhood where our church is located. One of the homes I called on happened to be the home where my father was raised back in the 1920's. The lady of the house was very hospitable and invited me to come in for a visit. My father had mentioned that the attic of that home had been sealed off when his mom and dad divorced back in 1935. My dad had told me some items had been left in the attic, but he couldn't remember what they were. During the course of our conversation I mentioned this to the current owner and I left my name and phone number with her. A few years later I got a call from this nice lady. While reroofing the old house they found very dirty but beautifully framed pictures of my grandparents on their wedding day. I obtained them from the owner and had the oval frames and class cleaned. They turned out great and these pictures now hang prominently on my living wall. They are a constant reminder to me that my marriage vows are a promise of commitment to my wife of 47 years. My grandparents both passed away in the 1950's and they never reconciled their marriage. I am so pleased to have them back together again even in picture form.....Dick B. -- Comments, thoughts?
