Happy Labor Day!  Since 1882, the first Monday in September has been designated as a day to acknowledge the achievements of the American worker. 


As lovers and collectors of vintage, historic, and rusty old stuff, we appreciate the craftsmanship and pride of the American laborer.

Many times I've wondered why I am enthralled by antiquities and vintage items,
why I prefer the old instead of the new.  Maybe it's the artistry and the pride that
went into the manufacturing of every day items in local factories; factories that provided communities with jobs; factories that helped build this country into the leader of the world's economies in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Job well done.
