Joy is not in things…it is in us. Good values cannot be purchased, and sterling character doesn't fluctuate in the silver market. Though the pages to follow are brimming with intriguing goods one would yearn to covet, there is a bliss in giving that far transcends our own wants. Perhaps this humanitarian notion accounts for the happy contagion that seems to be so widespread every December. Hopefully your loved ones will benefit from your findings here- thereby inducing a smile from you. My mother is a constant source of sage old adages. One of my favorites is "One cannot afford to buy cheap things". The Victorians savored their lifetime possessions. Crafted to endure, their hand-tooled leather boots (p.69) and artisan-made accoutrements were not passing fancies or trends, but rather their signature goods that served them well through the course of their days. Those of us at Victorian Trading Co. hold anything crafted by patient hands to be sacred. Somewhere in Ireland, knitting needles are clacking together to conjure our Aran merino wool sweaters (pgs.46 & 70). An artist is hand painting the details on a fired porcelain, and a seamstress is threading a needle. A baker is measuring the brown sugar that goes into our mouthwatering bourbon balls (p.27) and a jeweler is setting tiny seed pearls upon filigree castings. Italian carvers are combing the sands for pink conch shells destined to become cameos (pgs.58-59, 62-63). We are in awe of those artists who continue the methodology of agesold trades. And we applaud those who revive lost art forms by offering a renaissance to the rare and exquisite.
