FROM UNCLE VINNY was my mother's creation. Since my childhood, she would give extra presents to family on holidays, things that she found at thrift stores and garage sales. These gifts were tailored to the recipient, and we always enjoyed opening them. She would sign the tag from "Uncle Vinny”, after St. Vincent de Paul’s nickname, St. Vinny’s.

Uncle Vinny performed his gift-giving duties under my mother’s guidance for 50 years. Some relatives have known his presence all their lives: a cousin grew up without ever learning the truth behind our second Santa Claus, and she reached adulthood believing that we had some weird, distant uncle who sent us used presents!

My mother is gone now, but we still occasionally take up Uncle Vinny’s mantle, bestowing thrifted gifts to each other in his name. I carry on the tradition in my own way, reselling vintage treasures I find at the same places she and I used to shop together. Uncle Vinny lives on.

I hope he has the perfect gift here for you!
