ENTHUSIAST n. /en-'thoo-zee-ast/: a person filled with enthusiasm; as one who is ardently attached to a cause, object or pursuit

We are enthusiastic, some may say nostalgic for the way things used to be done and should be done. The activities that inspired us all. The products that made them special. And, most importantly to us, the place where these products are made.
