Honest and True Vintage - from an honest and true vintage human
Once upon a time there was a girl whose mother had a great personal style for home decor and whose father had a sense of humor that was mildly subversive with notes of kitsch. When that girl was a young adult in Boston, she discovered the pleasures of used vinyl record stores and vintage clothes, which she wore almost exclusively (when she wasn't wearing some garment with an asymmetrical zipper and gargantuan shoulder pads, it was the New Wave era).
How you dress, how you decorate your nest--both say something about you. I suppose how I curate my Etsy shop says something about me. RecentHistory combines my mother's sense of style with my father's sense of humor and my own passion for vintage. I love simple things that still bring function and maybe have a touch of funk, style lines that speak to when they were made, souvenirs from going places and doing things, handmade art and objects that really are one of a kind, paper ephemera with images and type to swoon over...the list is pretty long.
When you read my condition statements, and I include one with every listing, you should probably know that I am a tough grader. If there is a serious condition flaw, either you won't find it in my shop or you will see it clearly photographed and described.
Patina is not a condition flaw in my book. Patina is something that has been earned by living an everyday life. I love finding a spoon that's worn down on one side from decades of stirring or a wooden crate that wears it's years of service proudly.
Shopping for anything online is a leap of faith. Shopping for vintage online from a small independent dealer can be an even bigger one. My goal is to meet and exceed every buyers expectations and to offer the kind of service that I appreciate receiving. When you shop either here on Etsy, at our sister site www.nextstagevintage.com or at our bricks and mortar location at 60 West Main Street in Northborough, MA, you have our commitment to always do our best for you. And you have our thanks for shopping small and independent.
A lover of 20th century vintage, my favorite sport is finding great picks and bringing them to market. My philosophy harkens back to the classic general store, dealing in most everything. Life is too short to have one vintage passion.
This is a vintage item. It has been used and loved and it has a history. Every attempt is made to describe it accurately, please examine photos carefully.
