Greetings! I run a site as a sole-proprietor called Mayda Mart (https://maydamart.com). Along with things like paper crafts, personalized art and other odds and ends, my biggest passion is my vintage/retro movies (public domain, of course), cartoons, animations, etc.
Being new here, I need to learn the ropes, but I hope visitors who find me will at the very least, enjoy the content. I'm hoping to bring on a few smiles, maybe even some hearty laughs, some good memories (for those of use who had the privilege to grow up in the greatest country in the world - when it was truly GREAT!).
So call me retro, vintage, old school, old-fashioned, old lady - or just plain old if you want, just let me try to "entertain you", if even a little bit.
Godspeed my fellow BitChute users. Hope to see you around.
