Holly, MI – Giving presents to loved ones is a tradition as old as love itself, and with the range of collectable items at Holly Antiques it’s not hard to find interesting gift ideas. There are several vintage Valentines and plenty of cupids and cherubs, but also some unusual finds.
Another interesting piece is a vintage baby buggy made in the style of 1930s race cars. The buggy was properly stored and still pushes smoothly. A baby or two can fit inside and view the world though windows that look similar to car windows. Or the shades can be drawn to keep them in their own little word.
Holly Antiques has a variety of vinyl records. Glenn Campbell’s Rhinestone Cowboy seemed like a good fit.
And for those with a whimsical sense of romance there is a toy parking deck. Though the toy is made for Fisher Price cars and figures, the top of parking deck is also a great place for super heroes, reporters or mysterious story sources to sneak kisses under stars and overlooking cities. So it goes on my romantic list at least.
But for the more traditional couples, Holly Antiques has an abundance of lovely artwork, vases, vintage postcards and books, decorative items and of course jewelry. Perhaps the 1950s Valentine featuring a heart-shaped ashtray and lit cigarette can get couples in the mood to kiss. Or some red and pink kitchenware in the mood for making a perfect romantic dinner. The Mickey and Minnie salt and pepper shakers are also quite adorable.
