When we say something is "vintage" we refer to something that is characterized by excellence, maturity, and enduring appeal; something classic. And sometimes it can be just an old or outmoded object, right?
But how can we distinguish old from vintage? Well, this last one is referred to items from the 20's to the 50's, maybe 60's.
I remember when I was younger, I hated the "old" things my mom had, I just couldn't stand my mother holding on to those old things. She always said: "they don't do things like these anymore". And she was right, now I know. You can spot the difference from a vintage chest of drawers and an Ikea dresser from a mile away!
Mass production made things easier to be produced, distributed and thrown away. In this era we can find whatever we need, whenever we need it, wherever it was produced. But the good thing is that can now also find a multitude of fine-well-made vintage furniture, decoration, toys and even clothing in some stores, specially in big cities. In some areas it even has become a trend to prefer the quality of vintage than the use and discard modern items.
I have to admit, now, I can really appreciate not only the quality, but the prettiness in vintage.
