While I have grown to love a nice piece of vintage dishware, I am not a seller and I am by no means an expert.
If you are a regular reader of this blog, you know that I get a lot of vintage dishes from my parents. In fact, I rarely leave their home without a box or two.
When it comes to these dishes that I receive as gifts, I usually know with certainty that they are "vintage." My method is simple...if I remember it from when I was young, then it's vintage. Sad, but true.
Hey, at least that doesn't make them antique.
Above and below, some items I received on my most recent visit to my parents' house. Some of them I remember from my youth and some of them I don't. They were likely around, but I just don't remember them.
I do remember this candy dish. I wish I could actually fill it with candy, but it would soon be emptied in this house. I will have to use it for pickles or something.
How do you know if it's vintage? And, how old is "vintage" anyway?
