This year's Thanksgiving or Thanksgivingkkah, in which Hanukkah coincides with Thanksgiving, is out of the ordinary, a kind of Hanukkah miracle. It won't happen again for 70,000-plus years. Maybe.
What makes it so hard to figure out is the complicated way that the calendar we use -- the Gregorian solar calendar -- and the Jewish lunar calendar interact. What to eat? Mashed potatoes or potato pancakes? There's a plethera of foods from these holidays that just don't mix!
In any event, wishing all a Happy Thanksgiving, and all who celebrate, a Happy Chanukah! And thank you for your years of patronage!

I'm thrilled to share the upcoming grand opening of Curiosities, a wonderfully eclectic boutique in the West Portal neighborhood of San Francisco.
Proprietors Karrie Finkel, and sister, Tina Mulligan, have been in the vintage/antiques business for more than 26 years. They've teamed up to open Curiosities, a very special shop that has a unique blend of old and new.
You can tickle your fancy at Curiosities with a wide selection of decorative accessories, Asian antiques, fine sterling silver, vintage garden pieces, fine vintage and designer replica jewelry, eclectic collectibles, gifts and more.
antique sterling silver adorns the shelves
old French sheet music
old tortoise shell for your cabinet of curiosities
vintage hat stands
One of the most exciting things I have to share is that you'll be able to find some of Paris Hotel Boutique's pieces at Curiosities. I've been a friend of Karrie's since my early days in the antiques business, and am honored to have some of my goodies available at this fine boutique! Please pay a visit if in the neighborhood.
The grand opening is October 1st.

Just stmbled upon this photo of me in the early 1970s. Okay, I'm dating myself. So stylish though, ha ha. Favorite color: pink. Collections: candles, happy face pins, beads, stationary, stickers, glass animals. The list goes on.
Were you a pink, blue or yellow lover? What did you collect?
