Did you know that vintage is more affordable than comparable new goods? Did you know it holds value? Finally, did you know many items are made better than anything you can buy today? Until 1990 many items still being produced in the United States and Europe. Since then the majority have moved production into Asia.
Clothing and furniture are excellent examples of this. The solid wood chair, couch, table or dining sets of yesterday have become scarce and are costly new. Vintage pieces provide the quality for the best price. Vintage clothing that was made in the US or Europe has stood the test of time and will for years to come. Across the board, construction is better and if taken care of it, you can get a little money back if you decide to part with it. Pieces that are well taken care of become treasures for another down the line.
