Yesterday I listed some 80's toys on ebay, and each one started with the word "Vintage". These were things I played with as a kid. And I must say, they have fared better than I. None of them have their hips falling out of place or are balding. Yes, I know its related to hormones but I didn't have that as a kid either! Thankfully my kids found the toys just as cool as I did, so I take that to mean I am cool. Ehhhh Its my bubble, don't burst it.
When I was listing them I had to find some information about them in doing so I came across some sites that made me feel rather....whats the word. Oh yea, Old. I found this site and realized I was a very spoiled kid. I owned almost all those toys. What I didn't own, my brothers did. The 80's was a colorful time, what was with all the neon?
The House of Vintage Blog didn't make me feel much better either. Caboodles are vintage? What? I still use mine. Is that wrong? My sleeping bag, however, was not acid washed. I still own that too...and use it.
If vintage is a selling point I would rather be that than old.
