A Love For Vintage Anything
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

How many times have you thrown something away only to look back and say, "Why didn't I keep that?" We must all be guilty of it. Unless you are a pack rat, not many of us have room to keep everything we ever had. Right? Well, where can you find some of those things that you now treasure and would like to own again? Many people go to the internet to locate long lost things that might be needed again for plays, special church functions, halloween, 60's parties, or any type of function that requires using fads that were popular before 1990. I've even seen people looking for 80's fashions. And cars . . . my husband enjoys going to "cruise ins" which have become extremely popular for guys and girls where you sit around displaying your old car and talk to everyone who shows up, possibly even competing for a trophy. Yes, it's popular to own old stuff.

Performing arts people are always searching donation and consignment shops looking for styles that will be appropriate for their performances. Old fashioned days at churches or special events try to find old clothes and a lot of times people end up renting something to use for these functions. Men like to dress in Gatsby-type clothes or ganster-style to feel suave. Women like old, expensive jewelry. It just looks like quality more so than today's jewelry. What gems we can find when looking for old jewelry. Maybe a yard sale would yield some high quality jewelry.

Once you find your special vintage clothes or vintage clothing, it is exciting to get your friends opinion as to what year it could have been worn and possibly what it was used for. What about old hats??? Well, it is fun trying to determine what year or maybe easier, what decade they were worn. For that, a lot of people search the internet to get ideas of when or what years these things were used. It is fun to look at old things and think about who and why someone would have worn the clothing, jewelry or even who might have driven that car.

We are all experiencing vintage moments each day of our lives that might one day mean something to someone else. Maybe we should save some of the most dashing pieces for when we get to the point in our lives that it is vintage. Or, maybe we could just search the internet and find what we need without being a packrat. LOL

So where can you find old stuff and information about old stuff? Let me help you.

I think I have a "vintage moment" a few times each day. I like to collect some of the empty packets, jars and tins that our regular groceries come in. Some of the packaging is beautifully made and looks great as an object. Color, shape, style and textures are often all there in an ordinary package that gets thrown out and never thought of again. I find it fascinating to see some common old weeties box that has been saved from the 1950's. There's a story right there:) The common things now become objects of fascination for future generations. I enjoyed reading your article Diana:)
