You should see the pile of vintage magazines here in my office. I love them, and live in the past most of the time. :)

Thanks so much for visiting my blog:) I will definitely be looking your posts over. I'm a big fan of the Vintage Traveler blog. As an antiques dealer, I sometimes come across vintage clothing (and some true old 19th c. pieces as well). It's always nice to have a source that can help me figure out exactly what I have:) Have a great day and thanks again for leaving a comment!
