I recently found out that to call something antique it has to be over 100 years old. The vintage moniker comes after 50 years and anything less than 50 years is just considered old. This actually made me feel pretty good because I am no longer “just old” I am now “vintage.”
Sadly many vintage collectables these days are just plain old items I grew up using everyday. The Walkman and Hot Wheels come to mind. I’ve even seen the record adapters we used on our 78’s and 45’s on Facebook with the caption your old if you know what this is and how it was used.
I know that the finding and collecting of antiques is a pretty cool hobby. It allows you to be a modern day treasure hunter. There is some magic in finding that really valuable piece of history in a store or at a yard sale. Of course, valuable is in the eye of the beholder. One person’s cool memory is another’s person junk.
