Many people tend to like things that are classic, retro, reproduction, craftsman, and antique, which usually means OLD. I have an aunt who still uses a set of iron quilting clamps made by my great-great grandfather.
If it ain’t’ broke, don’t fix it, you know what I mean? I don’t know about you, but I grew up on this wartime era saying: “Use it up, wear it out, make do, or do without.”
But even for us die-hards of conservation, there are just some things in life that need to be replaced.
I’ll never forget one day when my son came walking out of the bathroom, brand new toothbrush in hand declaring “I didn’t remember that my teeth could feel THIS clean!” Hmmmmm. Maybe I waited too long to buy that new toothbrush.
Toothbrushes, socks, sheets, razors.
Fresh versions of these things are delightful little luxuries that are sure to put a smile on your face.
