Introduction Hello and welcome to Waiter, Waiter, Percolator! I was born in the wrong part of the 20th century. I especially love the 20s-50s. Using vintage items in my everyday life is part of "saving the planet" for me. I sew vintage patterns and/or recycled clothing, make jewelry, and create retro-inspired graphics. Will work for chocolate and shoes. Cheers! --Nancy
