What is Vintage?


"One man’s trash is another man’s treasure"
Many people struggle to understand the meaning of vintage…
The term vintage is used to describe clothing between 20 and 100 years old. An item that is produced in a specific era, either new, used, dead stock, manufactured or handmade.
Vintage is a fluid term. As the years go on and decades pass a new “Vintage” is born.
Vintage clothing 100 years or older is classified Antique.
Vintage is often seen as “more valuable” and as a result can require a price tag to match, which represents its worth. Having a history or well-known brand attached to it also adds to its worth.
For the most part vintage is one off or one of a kind, which ultimately raises its worth and supports its value, becoming more sought after.
Vintage is a way of life for some, for others it’s a way of self-expression. 
For a fashion forward shopper who seeks to stand out and be different, knowing an item cannot be found at a chain store and reproduced by the thousands is a must.
There is something powerful about owning a one of a kind piece that no one else in the world has.
This is why we love and sell vintage.
