Vintage In A New Age

Picked up a few vintage items at a yard sale this weekend.  An old storage trunk, a Singer sewing machine (Cabinet Model), and a Nikon EM. Being a collector of vintage and antique items these pieces spoke to me.  History often has a story to tell if we take time to listen.  It was a pleasure speaking with the woman who was selling a host of items that belonged to her father who’d recently passed away.  She stated that he had been collecting so many things that the home looked like an episode of “Hoarders.” With the quality of these items I was only sorry I didn’t get there sooner.  Vintage in today’s world is something to appreciate by all means and uncannily we throw away a piece of the past without even thinking about it.  Knowing the value of something beyond the price tag is truly…priceless.

  1. Hi. I was contemplating adding a backlink back to your website since both of our sites are based mostly around the
    same niche. Would you prefer I link to you using your website address: http:
    //asouldrivenmind.wordpress.com/2013/06/11/vintage-in-a-new-age/ or website title: Vintage In A New Age | A Soul Driven Mind.
    … Please let me know at your earliest convenience.

    Thanks
