Love this ad for the now gone San Francisco Emporium Department Store (aka Emporium-Capwell's) from Nov 28th 1901. More amazing is that this ad is from the Honolulu, Hawaii, newspaper The Daily Pacific Commercial Advertiser (later to be the Honolulu Advertiser)

WOW! Time flies ... Christmas is just a month away ... that's 30 days ... is there enough time? They asked the same question back in 1933! Check this out ...
I guess things change ... but kinda stay the same. So ... come on in to Vintages while there is still time.

These one-of-a-kind handmade ornaments are pretty great. Each steampunk ornament is painted and embellished with watch gears, parts and lenses. These are now in our Los Gatos shop and on Lopaka ... check them out.
I also made one cute little retro tree ... complete with pearls and fish that bubble up blue rhinestones!
|These are priced at $19.95 each and come in a gift box.|
There are also some other trees decorated with crystals, jewelry parts and findings and lots of glitter. Get these at the same places.

Happy Holidays ... Bob and Susan
