I just have to say it to get it off of my chest and out of my mind! Someone left me a nasty comment last night saying that my ceramic tree and Shiny Brites are not vintage. They said it was amusing what people considered vintage. Of course this comment was left anonymously, which I think is quite cowardly! Didn't anyone ever tell you that if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all!?! I had to look up the meaning of "vintage" to make sure that I wasn't making a fool of myself. "Too old to be considered modern but not old enough to be considered antique. Retro, recently out of style with a potential to make a comeback. Vintage is anything that dates after 1920 and up to the mid-1980's." So clearly all the "vintage" items that I showed on my last post were truly vintage! Not to mention that you can find all of these things on ETSY, all listed as vintage items! This person also told me that Shiny Brites were cheaply bought at the dime store and asked me if I thought the ornaments on sale at Wal-Mart right now will be considered vintage someday. I really don't think it matters how much the item originally cost. And I suppose that someday in the future, the ornaments we buy today might be sought after like Shiny Brites of yesterday currently are and they could be considered vintage as well. Who knows what people in the future will seek from the past! I just don't understand why anyone would take the time out of their day to be so rude and condescending to someone who did nothing wrong. I know I should just let this go but I am the kind of person that takes everything to heart. This hurt my feelings and put a damper on my day and why? Because someone has a negative opinion about something that I posted on MY BLOG?! Ridiculous! I have been so fortunate as to have never received a mean comment until this and I just had to say how I feel. I am sure the coward who posted it won't read this, but it feels good to get it out there! Thank you to everyone who took the time to leave a sweet comment about my vintage treasures. You are the ones that make blogging such a great thing!
