How on-trend is Vintage?

The fashion industry isn’t the only one that goes in ‘cycles’. Interior design trends are just as fluid as haute couture, and fashions in décor come and go almost as quickly as hemlines rise and fall. However, as the saying goes, ‘good style never goes out of fashion’ and over the past few years vintage has established itself not as a fleeting fad or passing trend, but as something with its own, unique style. That is what makes it so endearing and far more resilient to change than other, less established trends.

What is Vintage?Vintage can be difficult to define, as effectively it’s anything that harks back to an earlier age. Vintage can be taken from the 1950s or the 1850s, depending on your taste. And that is another big plus point in its favour – it’s far more susceptible to personal choice than other, more rigidly defined fashions.

Most commonly, inspiration for vintage designs, especially on the more unusual home accessories, tends to be drawn from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. So you’ll find plenty of super-feminine styles and elegant designs incorporated into everything from furniture and fixings through to trinket boxes and crockery.Vintage can mean anything from decorating your house with subtle, shabby chic home accessories, or going all out and doing a full Victorian work-up in the bedroom, complete with four-poster bed and wash stand! Vintage home accessories work well in every room in the house, from the bedroom through to the bathroom and even out into the garden. Subtle vintage touches can add an air of homeliness without being too over the top.

There’s an elegance and a sophistication to vintage – it reminds us of an era when the value of something wasn’t purely monetary, but also in how it represented us as a person. Vintage is distinctive and individualistic – there’s nothing ‘run of the mill’ about a vintage look. It can also be personalised to suit the tastes of the individual, reflecting their likes, their dislikes and even their aspirations. The result is a fusion of ideas and designs that, if it were used in any other context, might not work. However, with vintage the whole point is to fuse ideas and design concepts together to create an unique look.

Affordable chicAnother great aspect of vintage is that it is affordable, even if you’re on a tight budget. You can start small, with a few trinkets that can come in at under a fiver! Vintage chic can be ‘developed’ over time, so you’re constantly adding to the overall look. Vintage doesn’t come flat-packed or straight out of a box; there has to be a strong personal involvement with its creation. That’s what makes it so unique, so personal and ultimately, so popular. It’s an opportunity to express oneself without adhering to set style rules and regulations.

My guide to eBay and why we love the auction website

My guide to eBay and why we love the auction website

We live in a digital age, where anything is becoming more possible by the day; the internet dominates the global market. The online super highway contains more content and more information than any of us will ever be able to comprehend. We have fan sites, Social media, blogs, online markets and auction sites. We have gaming sites, film and television sites, businesses of all types, and so much more. There are of course a few that draw more traffic because of their originality, uniqueness, niche, and simplicity. We all know Facebook, MySpace, YouTube, and hotmail. We all know about the auction sites as well, the main one's being eBay and Ebid. This post will look at why we love sites like eBay, how so many businesses are turning to the online platform to run their store from and some ideas for would-be entrepreneurs.

For as long as I can remember eBay has been around to assist buyers and sellers. I myself have made a few hundred pounds over the last few years selling my junk to eBay users. However in our new digital age it has become somewhat apparent that online stores like Amazon and Play are contributing to the destruction of the high street market place. Less and less consumers make the trip to their town centres to make purchases on clothes and other amenities.  Many high street retailers have shut down, or are in process of going out of business. Thousands are out of work, and it’s all down to the convenience of the online store.

So the shop keepers and business owner’s hands were forced to play the online game, by starting their own eBay stores and creating seller accounts on websites like Amazon. I have made a few purchases from eBay stores, and to my surprise a lot of store owners had adapted and had created visually appealing eBay pages that in some cases linked to their own websites. So the digital age has forced business owners to learn basic SEO and website design, making our generation and older ones more advanced.

I have a friend who lives on eBay, every day he spends a few hours surfing the auction site for all manner of products. This is the beauty of eBay, you can sell anything you want, provided you add an accurate description and send what you’re selling in a timely fashion. I have seen garden sheds, motor bikes, cars, laptops, phones, clothes, candles, toys, collector’s items, even foreign money for sale. I remember selling less than £10 worth of Falkland Island coins, which are pretty much the same as our coins and being a British colony as well for over £10.

Ok so I promised some advice for you would be eBay sellers, I want to provide some basic information for those of you that wish to either start their own online business or perhaps just want to get rid of their junk. First of all remember that one man’s junk is another man’s treasure, I have sold all manner of different items on eBay, I have sold a van, model soldiers, money, coins and notes, old games, old DVDs, even a jacket that I won through a competition. So remember no matter what you want to get rid of you could probably make some money from it.
