Vintage Gifts: His n Hers Wedding Presents

I always like to give one-of-a-kind gifts at weddings (which probably bugs people when all they've really wanted is for people to shop off the registry) but it is especially fun for me when I know that they are the kind of people that will really appreciate a vintage find.

Two of our friends recently got hitched, and we put together a little vintage "His n Hers" package for them.

Estate Sale Finds: Irish Love

I got to spend Friday with my friend Sarah perusing estate sales here in San Francisco. I mostly just found small doo-dads that I couldn't pass up: some dishes from Finland, velvet hair bows and a bunch of peter pan fur collars.

We did have some fun the home of an Irish couple, and Sarah discovered an entire box of their old love notes. She tells the full story here, but I just had to at least share this set: a cute St Patrick's Day love note ... and what we suspect is the green tie that the note is referring to:

I love estate sales because I'd like to think that they help people's stories continue. Hope that Sarah's Tom enjoys this package deal as much as Maggee's Tom must have.
