FROM UNCLE VINNY was my mother's brainchild. Since I was young, she would give extra presents to family at 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. Many relatives have always known his presence in their lives: a cousin grew up without ever learning the story behind it, and she reached adulthood believing that we had some weird, distant uncle who sent us used gifts!

My mother is gone now, but family members still occasionally take up Uncle Vinny’s mantle, bestowing thrifted presents to each other in his name. I carry on the tradition in my own way, reselling the vintage treasures I still find at the same places I once shopped with her. Uncle Vinny lives on.

I hope he has the perfect gift here for you.
