A Member in the Circle of EveNo rhyme, no reason for who gets circled here, but keep eyes and ears open as every EveTeam member, and other Etsy shopkeepers, will be in the spot light of the Circle of Eve. Thom Aten, EtsyVintageElite team member, tells us about his passion for vintage. His shop name is Circa810, and his last name is pronounced like the two numbers, 8,10. Clever.
About Thom's love for aviation.
I have too many aviation collectibles! One of my favorites is a TWA Passenger Service Kit. It's a beautiful, brown, leather trimmed, boxy type suitcase used in the early days of commercial flights. Brass clip closures on the front, and a sturdy, leather handle on top. The stewardess, as they were called back then, used these so called "catering boxes" to tote food and other passenger service goods on board. With all my vintage aviation items, I use this streamlined, sturdy catering box to hold many of my cherished items. When I get tired of one thing, it goes in the box and something else comes out. I guess I use it like a safe for those items I can't part with. This box bridges my love of vintage, aviation, and the affection I have for the dear friend who gave me this treasured piece. I like looking at this box when I day dream of what flying was all about years ago.

A note on Thom's memory, and an item now long gone.
This is kind of silly, but one vintage item I don't have any more is an old Folgers coffee can, and I wish I had it. It belonged to my father, and it rested on his work bench, and it sat there for my entire life. It was filled with broken pencils and pens, and an old green grease pencil with a red top sticking out of the can. I gave it to someone years ago, and I wish I had it today. It still holds such sentimental value. So I say to people, hang on to your special pieces, they hold such wonderful memories, and nothing can take their place.
