|Olé Tacos restaurant in Grand Rapids,|
Michigan, now defunct.
|A clip-on teddy bear like the Moonie |
clipped on my dad's collar. For sale
at Laura's Last Ditch.
Advertisers clip teddy bears on our collars daily, tempting us with the same two questions, framed in ways difficult to resist. And, judging from our overflowing closets, cupboards, and garages, it seems most people affirm "You like? You buy" with an emphatic "Yes!"
I'm not averse to rescuing an occasional hard-to-place vintage oddity that would otherwise be tossed; I'd even sell a clip-on koala were I to find one. My goal at Laura's Last Ditch, though, is to provide practical items people can't find elsewhere, while reducing the number of new products produced--and subsequently thrown away--by offering durable vintage alternatives.That means vintage kitchenwares in abundance.
You like? You buy?
If not, instead of making yet another purchase, take the money you might've spent, and use it to bless another.
Then, await my affirmation from this side of cyberspace:
"You don't buy? I like!"
