Happy Birthday USA!

With the anticipation and excitement of summer comes a very important and historic celebration in the U.S.A.

 It's our nation's birthday on July 4th!

While it is a day spent with family and friends enjoying picnics and barbecues, parades and fireworks, it is also a most important day to commemorate the adoption of The Declaration Of Independence, signed on July, 4, 1776, declaring independence from Great Britain.

Many interesting facts are associated with this holiday:

* In 1776 about 2 million people lived in the United States as compared to 311.7 million people in 2011.

* In 1870, the U.S. Congress made July 4th a federal holiday. It is the only federal holiday that falls on the same calendar day every year.

* 3 presidents died on July 4th. In 1826 John Adams and Thomas Jefferson died hours apart on the 50th anniversary of the signing of The Declaration Of Independence. President James Monroe died on July 4, 1831.

* Francis Scott Key wrote a poem stemming from a battle with the British at a fort in Baltimore during the war of 1812 which eventually became the national anthem in 1937.

* Macy's Parade has the largest fireworks display with 75,000 pounds of dynamite during its half hour show which 2 million people attend every year.

Now that we have some background on this momentous day in our nation's history, I invite you to celebrate and party with the Vintage Vertigo team and all the wonderful items stocked for your July 4th celebrations!

Father's Day is Coming!

It was Father's Day gift buying time. Mama, my sister Susan, and I went shopping for the perfect gift for Daddy. Mama said he needed new underwear. Yuck! Mama said maybe some handkerchiefs? Double Yuck! Susan and I knew exactly what we wanted. What we always wanted, and what we always purchased for our Daddy was a bottle of....Old Spice. Daddy would put some on and waltz Mama around the living room with a silly grin on his face.  That happy Old Spice aroma wafted around us as they twirled.

If Old Spice isn't on your shopping list, check out some of these possibilities from Vintage Vertigo Team members. For more information about these items, please click on the image or the shop name.
