Hey NFL lovers! There's no greater fan than a Patriots fan. Unless you're a Packers fan. Or a Cowboys fan. Or a...well, you get the idea.    A Steelers fan met Vintage by Cathy at an arts festival.

 " I gave my mother this necklace for Christmas. I have never been more excited about a gift in my whole life, and it was so much fun to give it to my mom, and see her expression when she realized what it was.  I didn't have to explain.  She recognized it right away as something like her mother had, but did not realize until I told her that I had found it in her attic that is was her mom's,  and then I found you who worked the magic!  I cannot thank you again for your expertise, talent and enthusiasm for this project".
