I love..wait, loved the word Vintage. It used to actually mean something. Technically from a specific time. Like, a 1956 Vintage, or its a wonderful 1965 Vintage wine, etc. And you can also simply communicate an aged item by adding vintage. BUT.. And this is where I go off. But shysters have been marketing through search engines the term Vintage as in Aged, or as if its old. And because people are replicating Patina now, and quite well, I might add, you can be fooled.
And it can cost you. Why? Because it’s new crap that’s mass produced and is in the end crap. Future Junk. BTW, I am sorry if I offend anyone here. But dang! It’s like the fake Statue of Liberty in Las Vegas. And further more ruining the entire joy of patina. I cant even say that word now either without getting pissed off. HEY, I am 60 now, I am finding my fuse is getting shorter and shorter. Forget all the PC crap out there of words that cant be said anymore. Patina and Vintage are more offensive to me personally. Because they are used to lie, cheat and trick people. Sorry Vintage, sorry Patina.. I am going to replace you with my words, my spelling. “PreRestoric” and “Real Old” or Junk!
