Six Things Your Mother May Not Have Told You About Vintage from Vintage Garage Chicago
CHICAGO–Vintage Garage Chicago, the new urban vintage market opening June 17, recently highlighted six things your mother may not have told you about vintage.
“Going vintage says a lot in terms of going the extra mile to find the most unique things,” says promoter Melissa Sands. “It also sends message about the pursuit of quality, concern for the environment, and looking for the best value.”
The list of Six Things Your Mother May Not Have Told You About Vintage is as follows:
- Buying vintage is in many cases buying locally, which is good for the local economy.
- Buying vintage is good for the environment. No new resources are used when you re-use.
- In most cases vintage means it doesn’t lose its value. Vintage merchandise often appreciates. In most cases you can get most of your money back when it’s time to sell.
- Vintage is often made with higher quality materials and you can still find items made in the US and Europe.
- When you wear vintage you set yourself apart from the crowds, there is much less of a chance you’ll see someone wearing the same sundress.
- Buying vintage can get you more for your money, especially in categories like vintage diamonds.
The list is also available in a presentation format at: http://www.vintagegaragechicago.com/six-things-your-mother-never-told-you-about-vintage/
The Vintage Garage Chicago will be held June thru October on the third Sunday of each month. The hours will be 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and the event will be held at 5051 Broadway, in Chicago between Argyle and Foster.
