News-Antique.com - Mar 15,2011 - Vintage calendars, often souvenirs and keepsakes, sadly end up stored in a box or discarded. A quick check of perpetual calendars reveals previous years that coincide with the current year. The 2011 calendar matches perfectly with a number of previous years including 1949, 1955, 1966, 1977, 1983 and 1994. It’s a great opportunity to once again enjoy Grandma’s World’s Fair vintage linen calendar or that favorite calendar filled with puppies and kittens Aunt Sue gave you for Christmas.
Sierra Gaskins, owner of the online shop Tennessee Antique Shack, finds using old calendars is not only environmental friendly but good exercise as well. I feel like I’m on a scavenger hunt when I check out antique shops and estate sales looking for calendars that I can use for the upcoming year. Norman Rockwell illustrations, gas station pin up girls, Garfield cartoons, porcelain calendar plates, and vintage advertising are just a few ways to relive fond memories. Celebrate a silver anniversary with a vintage calendar the year the happy couple were first married. A grandchild’s high school graduation year is made extra special with a calendar from their birth year, Sierra suggests.
Tennessee Antique Shack offers a large selection of vintage and contemporary items including two collectible calendars for use this year. Keep Elvis close to your heart with a 1966 RCA promotional pocket calendar. Enrich artwork fills a Warren 1977 wall calendar featuring the vampire seductress, Vampirella.
