Integrity of Vintage Team

Who can join?

Integrity of Vintage Team is a moderated team with the following requirements:

Buyers, sellers and collectors devoted to the integrity of vintage!

INTEGRITY OF VINTAGE TEAM CHARTER/EXPECTATIONS

► Follow ivteam guidelines (listed below)

► Follow Do’s & Don’ts/Terms of Use of Etsy

► All vintage items must be dated by decade or if an antique, by era. Simply listing it as "vintage" or as an "estate find" is not enough.

► Be an active team participant on a weekly basis, via discussions and/or social media.

►Team members are encouraged to use the team tag in their vintage listings (ivteam). We ask that you NOT use the team tag in listing for re-cycled, altered, or handmade items.



INTEGRITY OF VINTAGE TEAM GUIDELINES

►All vintage items must be dated by decade or if an antique, by era. Simply listing it as "vintage" is not sufficient.

If your item is currently or was recently in production, you must state why you feel that you can date this item prior to 1997 in your listing description. Just because something was an "estate find" does not make it vintage.

We ask all members to add posts in the established threads whenever possible. This will help us keep an orderly discussion base where things are easily found! You will find the link to our team Discussion Index at the top of our team page.

► All new listings posted in the team "New Listings" thread must be vintage only.

► Any treasuries posted in team threads must include the team tag (ivteam) and at least TWO team members.

► All team members are encouraged to use the team tag in their vintage listings (ivteam). We ask that you NOT use the team tag in listing for re-cycled, altered, or handmade items or post these items in our threads.

According to Etsy, "Upcycled, reconstructed or significantly altered vintage items are considered handmade. These items should be listed as handmade, not in the Vintage category."

► Most importantly, you are expected to treat fellow team members with respect and dignity at all times. There is a real person behind each avatar; just like you they have a real life with real problems and challenges of their own.

►Promote and support the integrity of vintage. The Integrity of Vintage Team leaders reserve the right to request the resource used to determine the era of items listed as vintage.

Last but not least, please answer each individual question on the application before submitting. Thank you very much!
