Last week's thread: www.etsy.com/teams/7490/vintage-lovers/discuss/10298092/page/1

Need help with an issue? We'll try to help. Have a question? This is the place to ask it. Don't know exactly what your newest treasure is? Post a photo and we'll try to help. Not quite sure an item is vintage? We'll take a look and give you our opinion. Our team members generously share their expertise and knowledge; we will try to answer your questions or point you in the right direction for an answer.

Many times you will really have to dig and keep digging to find the information that you're looking for. Sometimes even your best effort won't uncover the information that you need. Our mantra is research, research, research. Remember that the internet isn't your only resource; your local library, too, will have a section devoted to reference and resource books.

Also take a look at our Resource threads. You just might find the link that you're looking for there.

We Vintage Lovers are much like archeologists uncovering our vintage treasures; sometimes we have to be information archeologists in uncovering the information that we need.

So, put on your excavator's hard hat and start digging! We'll be here to help.

Feeling somewhat sentimental over my upcoming wedding, I bid on this "wedding vase" having no idea what it is worth or how I would use it. Now, of course, I have it and don't know what to do with it.

Can anyone shed some light on a value or information of this piece?

Can anyone tell me that these are from the early 1900s as I was thinking and are lithographs and priced right?

Can Anyone give me anymore ideas for this brooch listing? My Mom remembers wearing it when she went back to work in the 1960's but she isn't sure if it is older than that. She can't remember how she got it.... More than likely a hand me down... We didn't have the money to purchase something frivolous back then. There are no markings.

I picked up these playing cards with red roses. According to the code on the Ace of Spades, they should date from 1936 or 1956. I can see where they might fit into either of those dates. What are your thoughts?

THIS IS FOR ANYONE WHO DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO GET A PHOTO IN HERE:
YOU WOULD HAVE TO JOIN A PHOTO SITE, LIKE "PICASSA", "FLICKR", "PHOTO-BUCKET" AND OTHERS. THEN YOU POST YOUR PHOTOS THERE AND PUT THE LINK IN HERE!

To post a listing on this thread:

To post a listing on one of the team threads, go to your shop (public view) and right click on the photo of the listing (do not open the listing.) This should bring up a list. Left click on "Copy Shortcut."

Then go to the thread where you want to post. Right click in the post box and then left click on paste. Your link should now show up in the post box. Then click on the "Post a Reply" button directly underneath the box.

The photo of your listing and the title should then appear.
