To kick off the first Vintage Back Talk I am honored to share with you one of my favoirte vintage sellers from Etsy,
In her words...
1.How long have you been shopping vintage? What got you started/ interested? I've been shopping for vintage clothing since I was in middle school. I like the thrill of the hunt. Regular stores organized by size and style make me sad! I started collecting vintage and antique jewelry about three years ago. I really don't know why!
2. Why do you love vintage?I appreciate things that are well-crafted and built to last. I am also very nostalgic and I like the hidden history in old things.
3. Do you have any tips or tricks you could share for those interested in starting to collect vintage pieces?
I think the most important thing about collecting is to buy what you like and don't overthink your purchases. Yes, that Art Deco necklace at your local antique shop might seem a little expensive, but in 10 years it will be twice as expensive and in 20 years you might not be able to find it at any price. In other words, think about the long-term and don't fret so much about finding a good deal. When you buy great vintage and antiques, you are making an investment.
You can see more of Jean Jean Vintage jewelry in her Etsy shop.
