Here is where I deposit my inspirations for my little shop. I just purchased this wonderful vintage book published in the 20's. The illustrations by Florence Liley Young are now among my favorites. A caption from a plate on page 19 reads:

"All day long and every day, people came to buy the toys."

Bon Fortune will open soon and I hope you will find it packed with charm and whimsy. Everything you might need for a classic children's celebration in one place. No licensed characters, no plastic favor bags, no toxic toys. Just the kind of stuff you remember, or wish you could remember. Of course, it may take a little time to offer you my full vision; But, I hope at first a hint is there of fanciful things to come.
