I was looking through the YesterNook Facebook page recently, which is something everyone should be doing, when I saw this:
Cool, huh? Well, it got me to thinking about something. There are so many places, events, people, etc that have significance, but only on a local scale. They'll never be preserved in great halls or museums for the whole world to see.
In fact, sometimes the only place to find records amd artifacts of these kinds of places is in a store like YesterNook. Every vintage store has a built-in nostalgia vibe, but YesterNook is the kind of place where some of the nostalgia takes on a personal note.
You can frequently find items in the various booths that relate to local (Louisville, Kentucky, and Southern Indiana) memories. And not just the biggies like the Derby either. I'm talking about church picnics, old downtown businesses, churches that have closed, that kind of thing. Keep your eyes open next time you are in the store and see what jumps out at you. You might be surprised.
You never know what you'll find here. Sometimes, it's a piece of local history.
