What is vintage?

Not being tech savy, I have to admit that I have never "blogged"before.  Honestly I haven't really read many blogs.  So, of course, it seems natural that I would start writing a blog.......???  So I  will apologize in advance for any blogging faux pas that I might make in this process. Mostly I hope that you will enjoy some information that I pass along to you.  

So, Hi I'm Amie Swanson and I own Nostalgia here in Knoxville, Tennessee. I love vintage and unique things, which is why I started Nostalgia almost 6 years ago.  I've come to realize that most people don't really know what "Vintage" is, so I will start blogging by letting everyone know.  Technically (in the furniture world), something becomes vintage when it reaches 25 years old.  Since it is 2012, this would be any item that is earlier than 1987.  So I guess this includes me!!! An item becomes an antique when it reaches 100 years old....so 1912.  I had to get the calculator out to figure out how old 25 years was.  Nostalgia has won the best Antique store in Knoxville for the past 4 years and we'll certainly accept that honor.  BUT if we were to be literal, we would have to admit that it is false and we should return the award...... We won't!!!! because we're so happy that you enjoy Nostalgia as much as we do!!!
I hope this has made you feel a little more informed!!
