I Want to order your vintage to paint ornaments but can’t get to the shoppi g cart. My email had changed and I don ‘t know my password. Is there a phone number I can call to order them. I also can not get back to the email site.
I’m so sorry for the confusion! We are a vintage site, and present a lot of ads from the past — like this one from 1974.
