Hello to all of our fellow Vintage Lovers out there!
This is my first blog post, so I thought that I would write a little bit about my biggest inspiration behind starting this company, and why the Alzheimer's Association means so much to me personally.
My Nana (grandmother) was one of the most important people in my life. She was my biggest supporter, biggest fan, and her love and support was always unconditional.
My Nana was the nicest person you could've ever met. She would go above and beyond to help anyone, and everyone. She didn't have a mean bone in her body, and she treated everyone with kindness and respect. She had the best laugh, and she would laugh all the time. She was very creative, and crafty. There was always some project that she was working on, something she was sewing, or painting, or decorating. She had the best style, and she always looked so fashionable in everything she wore. She was also an amazing wife, mother, and the best grandmother I could've ever asked for. I look up to her for so many reasons, more reasons than I could ever list here. Everyday I try to emulate her and keep her memory alive.
I have always wanted to start my own business, specifically focusing on vintage inspired products such as home decor, clothing, and accessories. Everything on this website reminds me, in some way or another, of my Nana. And, I find comfort in knowing that I'm sharing a little bit of her memory with all of you.
In 2005, my Nana passed away from Alzheimer's Disease. It was one of the hardest things that I have ever been through. I miss her every single day, and would give anything for one more day with her. It breaks my heart to know that other families have been affected, or are currently being affected by Alzheimer's Disease. It is so important to me that we find a cure.
That's why I've decided to donate a portion of the sales from our "Novelty Items" page to the Alzheimer's Association. Every bit helps, and brings us one step closer in finding a cure to this terrible disease.
Right now, more than 5 million people are living with Alzheimer's. By 2050, that number could increase to 16 million people. Every 66 seconds, someone in the United States develops the disease. Since 2000, the deaths from Alzheimer's disease have increased by 89%.
