I've been collecting vintage stuff since before I knew it was "vintage". I'm just drawn to it and have an eye for it I guess. And I don't just hang it on the wall - I use it everyday! I remember the day when my kids went to the museum and realized this....they were surprised that a lot of the stuff that we used every day was considered antique or vintage!
Many of my "goodies" have been with me for years, but I've reached a point in life where it's OK to let some of it go. And of course, I can't stop myself from collecting more when a "find" is just too cool to pass up......
I feel that vintage items were made better, to last longer, and are therefor superior - not to mention the "cool" factor that much of it has!
I also sew, knit, crochet and garden. I tend to have a utilitarian look on things -…
