Antiques

Beautiful Collectibles 100 years and older

By definition, antiques are collectibles that are at least 100 years old.  They are  collected or desirable because of their age, beauty, rarity, condition, utility, personal emotional connection, and/or other unique features.   

Vintage Items

Quality pieces 25 years and older

The term "Vintage" was purloined from the actual usage of the word defining the year a wine was produced- Ie: "Vintage 1983"  These days it is used to describe collectible/desirable items 25 years or older.  Some would say vintage is mid-century (1950's) or older but with the progression of collecting through younger generations, along with online markets, the 25 years or older definition is becoming more conventional today.

Arts

Photography, Paintings, Various Medias

A little self-explanatory, the best definition may be "the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, typically in a visual form such as painting or sculpture, producing works to be appreciated primarily for their beauty or emotional power."  These pieces can range from paintings, photography, and mixed medium to sculptures and other forms.

Handmade Goods & Crafts

Handmade Crafts or Arts and Crafts can be a wide variety of items and generally fall under a utilitarian function or also just aesthetically pleasing or decorative.  Here you would find beautiful handmade jewelry, cards, pottery, soaps, decorations, and refurbishing of old items and giving them new life or purpose.
