Last summer while visiting A Vintage Gathering*, I saw this Kool-Aid set for sale and oh man did it bring back memories. I can't remember if we even had the set but that doesn't matter. It brought back memories of mixing the Kool-Aid in the kitchen with my brother helping. It brought back memories of summer time, playing in the yard, laughing with friends. I seem to recall that the cups and pitcher changed color too. Oh, and those commercials of the big Kool-Aid man. Out of all the wonderful vintage treasures at the sale, this......
this set made me stop, remember simple moments in life and smile. This is why I love these sales, vintage and antique shops and such:
For what they remind us of in the past so we know what to treasure in our present and future.
