For many people, vintage items evoke strong memories of a bygone age where glamour and sophistication were the byword. For others, vintage opens the door to days gone by when life was much simpler and less cluttered when compared with our lives today.
For some, it is the history attached to a specific item which holds their interest. After all, each vintage item has at least 20 years’ history attached to it. Who has used or worn this item before? What were they like? Where did they live? What sort of lives did they lead? Were they rich and famous? Or, indeed, infamous? These are the sort of questions that one ponders when considering a vintage piece.
Then there is, of course, the question of quality. With so many mass produced items for sale in the marketplace today, vintage items are a very attractive and original alternative. They also, for the most part, hold their own pricewise when comparing them with their more modern equivalents.
