Some thoughts to mull around while you're out thrifting, garage sale-ing, and flea-ing this weekend.
Remember when everyone needed/wanted sap buckets? They were the "in" thing. Now they're not.
When magazines and and cable say it's hot, it's hot...when it's not, it's not... You can think of lots of things over the years like that.. graniteware, yellowware, quilts, country, primitives, 1940's tableclothes, barkcloth, watering cans, coach bags ...
and on and on.
But, does the thing itself lose value when it is no longer hot? Not necessarily. Not, if YOU love it!
Do we always have to have the LATEST thing?
Most everything we collect and are buying now was discarded by someone at sometime.
This spring someone threw away these cheery sap buckets because they were no longer wanted, and now they're mine. Are they any less valuable because they are no longer the "in" thing? I think not! How do you feel about following trends because someone else tells you it's ..... in?
