A Touch of Vintage

Are you drawn to vintage magazines, photos and ephemera? Do you tend to incorporate vintage and retro elements into your art? Do you find yourself buying vintage inspired materials at your favorite arts and crafts store? If so, this group is for you!

WHAT KIND OF VINTAGE MATERIALS DO YOU LIKE TO WORK WITH?

I have been treasure hunting at thrift stores, estate sales, garage sales and more since the 1970's. I love vintage magazines, old photographs (especially with children and dogs; or a group of adults doing a funny pose or activity), post cards, playing cards, greeting cards, matchbook covers, postage stamps, paper dolls, old newspapers - pretty much any kind of ephemera.

I've been selling vintage at local antiques malls and on Etsy or quite a while, and so I have picked up plenty of these treasures to last me a lifetime!

    Mark - thanks for the offer, but if you wouldn't mind, hold off for a bit. I am planning on adding specific pages to the group - pages where members can share their vintage images digitally (and don't mind if other members download them). I would like to set up something by category. I'm hoping to do this over the next few days.
