Fury Conga Line Vintage
(Northeast, Ohio )
Robyns Fury Conga Line
It's so wonderful to see all the familar names! Wonderful people whom I've met through ebay and fellow collectors! Hi to Lisa, Gina, Celia and of course to my Breyer expert and Big Al nurse, Bonnie!
Vintage...Well, I would agree with the dictionary version of vintage being at least 25 years old. But what about the term "antique" or "historic"? Can something be a little bit of all of these? I think it depends on the item in reference as well as the person describing it. Example: My motorcycle is considered "antique" but my house is "historic".
When I think of vintage Breyers or when I open my very old box of my own oldies, my memories return to Christmas day, wrapped in a warm blanket, oozing with excitement to see which one I would receive, surrounded by loved ones that I've now lost. I think it's more than just a number. It's "nostalgia". Not just age, but those cherished memories.
I can only hope the Breyers I am collecting today (as well as my oldies housed in the old smelly box LOL) will be cherished by my kids. I hope they too, will open the box and remember "our crazy 'ole breyer collectin' mom" and fill their hearts with joy!
