    I posted that I had some vintage fabric and there seems to be a problem with what I thought was vintage fabric. There are 72,000,000 things when you google just one subject about it. What is it and do I have vintage fabric or what?

    I went and looked at your fabrics. They are not true vintage. The first is about a late 50's maybe even 60's, the second is more late 60's early 70's and the last one is about the same!

    i just read the definition and i belive some confuse antique with vintage they are not one and the same. Vintage was first only a term used in wine making and since we have used it in other ways. There are no real dates to describe vintage usless you put a date on it like a vintage 1924 ford for example

    I consider vintage to be older than 50 years old. And by that definition, I myself happen to be "vintage."

    In the case of vehicles a 1924 ford would be antique. Vehicles become antique after 25 or 30 years(I forget which) unlike furniture, china, glass ware, etc. which is 100yrs.
