You can’t hardly go into an antique mall without seeing vintage photographs. And there is something about us that can’t help but look through them. We stare at images of people and places at dinners and graduations and we have no idea who these people are, but every now and then for some reason we end up buying one or two and, at least for me, they just go into a box. But recently, thanks to your positive responses on Facebook, I’ve decided to start sharing some of my “Instant Relatives” with you! Today I selected some of the more humorous ones from my collection…
What is truly wonderful about vintage photographs is that they are of real people wearing real clothes. It isn’t a movie star who has a custom made dress designed my a costume designer. These clothes actually existed and were available for purchase, or were made by someone from a pattern that you may be able to get your hands on today. They offer great inspiration for our everyday outfits and hairstyles.
How about you? Do you find yourself buying old photographs? Why?
