Are Vintage Items Just “Old Shit” ?
I am very excited about the small business that I am trying to start from scratch and I have always had a very healthy long term relationship with vintage items and people that had a background and a story to tell. As a caregiver to a very forward thinking 93 year old man I learned that people and things that are “old” and “used up” have a story to tell. That’s why when someone close to me referred to vintage items as being “old shit” it didn’t sit with me to well. I believe that I am so drawn to vintage items and the elderly because I love to hear the story that these people and things have to say. They are not just old shit, they are experienced, knowledgeable, and well loved, people and things.
