Not Your Grandma’s Antique Store

Actually, I guess it really depends on just who your grandma is!

If she was a 50’s rebel woman or a 60’s flower child, if she had Disco fever or lived only for Pucci’s next print… then yeah, you got us: This IS your grandma’s antique store!!!  :D

As soon as you enter this Happy Spot, it packs a big, bright, funky-punky punch. The aged awesomeness seems endless as it lines every available wall, floor, and ceiling space!

Lucky Cat, who herself is over 2 centuries old, felt an immediate kinship with these much loved items of antiquity. She mentioned that, much like her, each item here has a history… a hidden story that makes it all the more lovable!!

And with that, Lucky padded off  to get to know as much of this Happy Spot as possible…

I found her journeying through poppy fields of polyester…

dreaming cozy colorful dreams…

and eying curious little buttons.

( Luuucky… That’s vintage buttonry, don’t even think about it!!)

After a hilarious scare in the “vintage vinyl” section (which Lucky requests I don’t elaborate on)…

heehee X-)


she took a quick look through randomly random people of the past,

and then hopped onto a camel (really?) to set off in search of this Happy Spot’s very own legendary feline!

It didn’t take long to find who she was looking for (she had apparently chosen a very knowledgeable camel) and after a short introduction these two mewed on and on for hours… I guess over 2 centuries of living probably does give her lots to talk about!

When the conversation finally wore down, Lucky’s new friend sent her off in search of somethin’ pretty cool…

…a Lucky-sized mint condition Model-T!

Next thing I know, Lucky’s zooming off again in a new direction. In this endless treasure chest of a place, I can’t wait to see what she comes across next!

“Feel your Best & Be your Best”

Lucky relaxes with healing salts and healing hands.

After her adventure with Godzilla pup, I figured our lil’ Ambassador of Happiness could use some relaxin’ paw-pamperin’ love.

My thoughts went immediately to the Salt Cave in Naples, as I’ve heard many times over that it’s a source of healing wonders!

(Oops! Did I just give away the location? Ah no, no. You see, the Salt Cave houses a very special talent… and that’s who we went to visit.)

“Ooh I can feel it already, this is going to be good.”

A Himalayan Salt Scrub was first on the relaxation list, until we realized the salt was almost as big as Lucky! So instead, she opted to simply bask in it’s healing glow. (Smart choice Lucky)

“Massage time? I’m ready!”

After her Himalayan Salt “glow treatement,” Lucky was welcomed into a pair of happy healing hands.

“Cha cha cha, I LOVE happy healing hands.”

According to the masseur, Lucky’s holding a lot of tension in that right shoulder. After the kinks were worked out, I mentioned that perhaps she doesn’t need to beckon in happiness 24/7, but she insisted otherwise and replied: “We need all the happiness I can get!”

That we do, Lucky Cat.  =)

“I’ll beckon happiness 24/7! I’m a Lucky Cat, and that’s what I do!”

Ah well.

If that’s the case, keep it up Lucky!  I’m starting to think weekly visits to this cozy place is something I could happily get used to!

Where’s Lucky Cat?

Getting a healing massage from Crystal Mastrofrancesco at the Salt Cave in Naples!

Congratulations to Angie of Estero, who found Lucky and won a 1-hour massage and a custom made jar of Himalayan Crystal Salt Scrub.

“Everyone can benefit from a little bit of a healing touch.” ~ Crystal

 

Who is Crystal Mastrofrancesco?

A gifted massage therapist,

A treasured source of healing,

And a promoter of happy, healthy bodies!

A focused touch can affect more than our skin’s surface; it can awaken our spirit and our body’s own healing energies. Massage therapy sessions, also known as Aahh-this-feels-amazing-why-don’t-I-do-this-more-often sessions, offer up a precious mix of health benefits. These include pain relief, stress reduction, improved circulation, head-to-toe relaxation, and all over rejuvenation just to name a few…

Crystal Mastrofrancesco, located in the Naples Salt Cave, has been practicing the art of healing touch since she was a young girl, happily offering massages to family and friends. What began as an innocent desire to offer relief and smiles to those she loved has now blossomed into an earnest passion to provide healing and happiness for all who need it.

This passion, paired with professional training from the Heritage Institute and a vibrantly positive attitude, has generated a magical combination of heart-fueled intent and practiced skill. Her hands are adept at conversing with the body, gently soothing, calming, and persuading tense muscles to relax and let go.  “I listen to not only what someone tells me about their body, but also to what their body tells me about their body.” Following these intangible signals is what allows Crystal to turn each massage into a custom therapeutic session and tune into the areas of the body that need a healing touch the most.

Her recent re-location to the Salt Cave couldn’t be a better fit. Now, in addition to offering Swedish, Medical, Deep Tissue, and Sports massages, Pre-natal massages, neck, TMJD, and headache relief, Crystal is also able to share the healing powers of Himalayan Pink Crystal Salt. This salt, in its many different forms, offers stronger detoxification and rejuvenation effects and is the main ingredient in Crystal’s custom-made salt scrubs.

Lucky Cat and I certainly benefitted from spending an hour in Crystal’s happy hands, and I’d recommend for you to pay her a visit too. After all, “everyone can benefit from a little bit of a healing touch!”   ~ Kalon Lucia 2010
