I've been noticing a trend. Maybe I've got it all wrong.
But, the newer generations are not into buying stuff
like our parents and grandparents did.
Remember the good china? It was kept in a special place only to be used on holiday get-togethers?
The silverware that actually had some silver plate or were silver? And needed to be POLISHED?
Gasp! Yes, I said the nasty word.
I know I'm from a different mold.
You know, born with an old soul.
I like getting out the good stuff.
Prepping, displaying, shining.
Obviously I do, right? I mean, I have an antique shop!
I've even seen designers encouraging
new, young, home owners
to turn their "dining room" space into a living area.
Doesn't anyone sit down
to dinner as a family anymore?
Do the younger generations realize that they aren't going to be handing down their old iPads and iPhones to their grandchildren? I mean, what will they inherit? This is where their money is going. A year later, the device is obsolete.
Something to ponder and also something to consider
as I keep selling vintage into the future. Times are a changin'. I've got to keep up with the times or my time as a dealer will be over.
Feel free to leave me a comment...I'd love to hear from you!
