I love the 1950's wrought-iron patio furniture. Had a loveseat & a chair & just this week I got a table & 4 chairs FREE on craigslist. They're in beautiful condition & even have been re-upholstered in cute weatherproof fabric. I am so thrilled & wanted to show my friend/neighbor how i'd set it up on patio. She looked & said "Is that NEW?" I said "No, they are vintage... from the 1950's." So she replies " Oh, i'd never buy old stuff; I only buy everything brand new". I felt kind of hurt but also thought (but didn't say it) that it's awfully "common" to buy something that every 5th. person probably has the same, identical thing.... give me old, odd, vintage, any day. What do you think?
