What Does "Vintage Opal" Mean?

When we were trying to come up with a name for this blog and eventually our online store, my sister and I tossed around lots of ideas. 

Because we have a house full of stuff that we're dealing with, I thought of "housefullofstuff" or "MomandPopsstuff" or "VintageTreasures" - that sort of thing - to convey the quantity and type of stuff we have.

My sister offered "VintageOpal" and it was perfect. We're sorting through mountains of stuff, most of which is more than 40 years old, and some of it is well over 100 years. 

Plus, Mom's name is Opal, and what nicer way to remember her in this? She's an October baby, so her birthstone is opal, and so is her name.
VintageOpal it is.

p.s. We just couldn't figure out how to work Dad's name into it. Sorry, Pop.
