Dear Vintage Goddess,
I'm writing to say that I'm actually really tired of seeing "vintagey" things everywhere I go. It's in the magazines, stores, furniture etc. Why is this such a big trend and when will it go away? I'm ready for something fresh and new, not recycled boring!!
I love your revamped blogs. I mainly go to your website to get my daily giggle or thought provoking story.
I think that too many chefs can ruin a broth. Today's market is completely saturated with retro and vintage inspired gadgets and copies. There's too much of a good thing happening now and the overexposure is causing this negative backlash.
I think that people like to feel nostalgic and the young people of today almost don't feel like vintage and retro things are old. We look at it as the past comforting us in cool, fashionable ways in our present. We hear a new mix from an old song and those of us who know the original tune, hear that, whereas the younger people hear it as a completely new song.
