I ♥ My Vintage Stereo System

Vintage Love Contest: Sound SystemIn 1974 I was a newlywed 23 year old….I went to Sun TV in Columbus, Ohio to buy a new stereo system…. I REALLY wanted these Pioneer components, but they were priced FAR beyond my modest savings. Last year it dawned on me that (thanks to ebay and craigslist) I was now able to afford a state-of-the-art 1974 Pioneer stereo system…. and here is part of it (I also bought a Pioneer reel to reel recorder and cassette deck!!)…. I tell my wife that she is lucky that my mid life crisis involved stereo equipment rather than Corvettes (or younger women!!)

I ♥ My Vintage Photo Album

Vintage Love Contest: Old Photo AlbumI love my vintage photo album that belongs to my 88 year old mother. It has photos of her grandparents’ 50th wedding anniversary – in 1934. Also, the Chicago World’s Fair which took place in 1933 and 1934 – A Century of Progress. The album contains tickets and season passes to the Chicago World’s Fair.

I ♥ My Vintage Plate

Vintage Love Contest: Vintage Plate

This plate is my mom’s that I took when I moved out in my 20’s. Ever since I can remember, she’s always had that plate in her china cupboard and it was one of the first objects I remember associating with “home”. It’s my piece of home that I take with me wherever I move to and it’s totally one of my three items I would grab if there was a fire!
