Happy New Year

Happy New Year!
2008 saw several new events added to our lineup of History in Vogue.
2009 will begin with a tribute to President-elect Barack Obama, stay tuned for that, the Oregon statehood sesquicentennial as well as Edgar Allen Poe.
The Fifties Fins & Chrome mats have arrived, and await the gathering of parts to complete a few. Have a favorite finned beauty to commemorate? Contact us to be included in this edition of, appropriately enough, fifty!
Don’t miss all that’s new since there’s not too much left in stock after the Christmas rush.
Keep checking the blog and watch the website for updates.

Making a list

…checking it twice!
Santa Claus has loaded his sleigh with History in Vogue pieces for many lucky recipients.
He didn’t find these stellar gifts in a mall; Santa knows that even though we don’t have a shopping cart within our website that he can call or email us to place an order – or Mr. Kringle was lucky enough to encounter us at one of the shows we attended in the past months.
Guaranteed to be smiles, WOWs, laughter and likely even tears when these were opened.

What’s under their trees? Peep these (and click on each to find out more about them and the editions they are part of):

New Mexico Rail Runner

You can now ride the rails from Belen to Santa Fe for as little as a dollar (one zone, one trip)!

An excellent way to enjoy the Land of Enchantment’s visual offerings, and certainly a bit of History in Vogue in the making:

Stars of a different kind

You’ve likely seen the range of celebrity-autographed, framed events, but these stars are also now included within the range of History in Vogue.

Click for a larger view of this amazing framed graduation gift, a photo of the W-5 region taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope 11 X 14

This is a custom gift commissioned for celebrating the earning of a Master’s degree in Physical Science (summa cum laude!)…

A photo of the W-5 region taken by the Spitzer Space Telescope is the centerpiece to this clever and dynamic mat display. Included in the lower right is a sterling silver tie pin with the seal of the college where the degree was received, West Chester University.
The hand-built frame molding is Spanish, and conservation glass is used to preserve all.
On the back is a plastic sleeve containing a letter of ownership for this one of one.

Congratulations, Don!
