    No! We are gently aged and served like a fine wine. :thumbup:

    At the vintage age of 30-19 DH and I took up sea kayaking. At the vintage age of 40-42 my neighbor took up downhill skiing. Anything is possible. I love the notion of sweet vinegar and am quite happily taking the years as they come.

    I too have always understood that something had to be 100 yrs. old to be called an antique. I have tught vintage meant 50 to 100 yrs. Guess I will go searching and find out for sure..

    I've noticed a whole lot of ebay sellers don't really have a clue what they're talking about.

    A few years back in Montana I saw Home Interiors was being called Antiques, I wonder if they know they are. I was shocked Because I had them in my house in the 70's.
    antique dealers must be getting younger.

    If you are not "vintage" you are either young or GONE!

    Vintage just means year made, originally used exclusively for wine its now become generic. Vintage can be last year depending on what it is - appropriate use is 'vintage 1994 fabric' or 'vintage 2000 Mickey Mouse toy' with the year referenced.

    I too refuse to grow old. I just celebrated my 19 anniversary of my 29th birthday. My grandfather is still alive and if you ask him his age he gives you the same sort of riddles. He has celebrated his 44 anniversary of his 50th birthday. K

    Yes, it's a shock when you go to an antique store and there are the toys you played with when you were growing up. I never thought about me being "vintage".

    I am older than vintage but not an antique yet if I have to 100 for that do you ever wonder what will be the next fad to collect when you see the junk we threw away used for decorations now. I know my mom and aunt would not even recognize my rotary cutter and mat they made hand made quilts, and cut each piece one at a time.

    This definition comes from Wikipedia, still leaves the question open, and probably tells you more than you wanted to know.

    An antique (Latin: antiquus; old) is an old collectible item. It is collected or desirable because of its age (see definition), beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional connection, and/or other unique features. It is an object that represents a previous era or time period in human society. It is common practice to define "antique", as applying to objects at least 50 years old. Collectibles are, generally speaking, the possible antiques of the future and generally less than 50 years old.

    Antiques are usually objects which show some degree of craftsmanship, or a certain attention to design such as a desk or an early automobile. They are most often bought at antique shops, or passed down as an estate. Some valuable antiques can be bought from antique dealers and auction services or purchased online through websites and online auctions. Antique dealers are often members of national trade associations, many of which belong to CINOA, a confederation of art and antique associations across 21 countries, representing 5000 dealers.

    [edit] Purpose[edit] PejorativelyThe term "antique" is pejorative in some instances to imply that something is out of date.

    [edit] Definition
    An antique US mailboxThe definition of antique varies from source to source, product to product, and year to year. However, some time-tested definitions of antique deserve consideration, such as the following:

    1."An item which is at least 100 years old and is collected or desirable due to rarity, condition, utility, or some other unique feature. Motor vehicles, power tools and other items subject to vigorous use in contrast, may be considered antiques in the US if older than 50 years, and some electronic gadgets of more recent vintage may be considered antiques. Another general rule of thumb is 75 years for most objects to become antiques."[citation needed]
    2."Any piece of furniture or decorative object or the like produced in a former period and valuable because of its beauty or rarity."[citation needed]
    In the United States, the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act defined an antique as "works of art (except rugs and carpets made after the year 1700), collections in illustration of the progress of the arts, works in bronze, marble, terra cotta, parian, pottery or porcelain, artistic antiquities and objects of ornamental character or educational value which shall have been produced prior to the year 1830."[citation needed] 1830 was roughly the beginning of mass production in the US and 100 years older than 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act.

    These definitions allow people to make a distinction between genuine antique pieces, vintage items, and collectible objects.

    The alternative term antiquities commonly refers to the remains of ancient art and everyday items from antiquity, which themselves are often archaeological artifacts.

    The term antiquarian refers to a person interested in antiquities, or things of the past.

    What do you think my thirteen year grandson asked me one day, and he was very serious? "Maw Maw, do you remember the Civil War?" I said, Nick, I'm old, but not that old. LOL

    Seriously Anna, I hope someone can answer and help who has had some ebay experience as to false advertising on ebay?
    I came across something just this past week. The picture showed 2 pairs of socks, but the description seemed to indicate only one. So, I emailed the seller, and sure enough, only one pair for sale. But, just looking at the picture, how many are lured in thinking, "What a great deal for 2 pairs of socks" By showing 2 pairs of socks, to me, that is false advertising.
