There’s a whole industry built around the current passion for anything vintage. It seems that even young people like to wear clothes from their grandparents era and even earlier. I went to a vintage fair a couple of years ago with a friend who is very keen. personally I like to look but wouldn’t want to own or wear anything from the past. i did see some interesting things though, this was one of my favourites.
Are you a vintage fan? If yo have photos you can join this weeks photo challenge at The Daily Post.

It is quite intriguing seeing some of the vintage stuff with fresh eyes, but that’s as far as it goes with me too. I think you made a good choice with this very fine gramophone, Gilly.
I love the gramophone but I have an attic full of my parents ‘stuff’ that I’m struggling to deal with, Gilly ~ not worth much but with which I have huge sentimental attachment. So I’m not a fan of vintage stalls, or even charity shops these days. Having said that, I have squirrelled away some of my own possessions for my grandchildren. 🙂
This gramophone is gorgeous. I’m not much for vintage anything–except maybe old furniture and no, I’m not into antiques. 🙂 😉
That is a beautiful piece, probably it has lost his master voice. 🙂
Now that is even older than I am… 😀
You echo my thoughts too; I like the suitcases and picnic hampers though…
I think that is a very accurate assessment of vintage and it’s current appeal. I recently found some of my grandfather’s ties ( he had quite a collection) and was surprised when one of my sons snatched them up!
Love the photo!
Love vintage and finding wonderful things at flea markets and antique/second hand stores. Although, sadly, I’ve had to limit buying now as I sold my house and downsized to an apartment. So I mainly just look.
