Buying Vintage

 

 

I am a big fan of shopping in charity shops, secondhand stores, auctions, car boot sales etc. this is because I am a big fan of anything Vintage and these sort of shops are the best places to buy vintage items
 
 The word Vintage, in my opinion , covers anything that is `old` but not yet classed as a valuable antique. Vintage items are often also known as collectables because people who like Vintage items will keep them and build up collections. Most Vintage collectables come from the middle of the twentieth century, with the 1950s and 1960s being the most collectable eras.

Using vintage items
Many Vintage items can be used for decorative or useful purposes in the home, for example , a 1950s coffe table can still serve it`s purpose in a modern room.

VINTAGE VAL
I know a lady called Valerie who everybody knows as Vintage Val.
This is because she dresses in vintage clothes where ever she goes and she even wears vintage clothes around the house. It has been said that she walks around her home in a vintage 1950 housecoat. Whenever I see her out and about she always looks like she has just stepped off of a film set. With her vintage coat, shoes, and hairstyle she does look like somebody caught in a time warp. But the thing is she does make and save money from vintage stuff. She buys vintage furniture and furnishings for her home and she never pays too much for anything. She constantly gives her home a makeover because whenever she has used something for a year or so , she always sells it for a profit , then replacing the item with another vintage bargain.
Val used to have a job in a shop , which she hated, but she managed to give it up when she stated her own vintage business. She buys and sells vintage clothes, accessories, homewares and other vintage items . She has a stall on her local market and the local antiques fair . Valerie even has her own customers who ask her to source things for them, and when she takes them to the customers home , she often gets the chance to buy their vintage things that they do not need anymore.

Vintage advertising posters
A couple of years ago when we were redecorating our kitchen,  I thought it would be nice to give the wall next to the sink a bit of a vintage feel . So we did this by buying a vintage advertising poster from an antiques fair. This was a reproduction of a vintage advertising poster that was trying to sell the idea of tinned vegetables.
