Collectibles vs. Antiques vs. Vintage
Among art enthusiasts, there is often debate about the definition of these three terms. “Collectibles” generally stays above the fray, but the other two often get mired in discussion.
First, for the easy one. A collectible piece or figurine just means that it was designed for people to collect. And different folks have a different take on what a worthy collection might be. Some only collect Halloween witches, while others prefer jolly Old St. Nick. The variety covers the proverbial spectrum, and there is no right collection for every collector. They’re as different as the collectors themselves. Collectibles are not necessarily a step off in quality, but rather just a higher volume in circulation to satisfy the appetites of the world of collectors…and there are many.
“Antiques” vs. “Vintage” starts to brave a more nuanced concept, and the opinions vary quite a bit. Antiques, according to the U.S. Customs Office is an item that is at least 100 years old. That’s old, even in dog years! Antiques from this era are often marked by supreme craftsmanship and detail, and this can produce very valuable items.
“Vintage,” on the other hand, is more open in terms of the era it is from. Some feel that vintage can be as new as 20 years ago, while others maintain that the hallmark of “vintage” is only reserved for items 50 years old or older. Those from the latter school of thought will argue that the true vintage era is from 1920 to 1965, and that these years are the only window to vintage. No matter your opinion, we all agree that folk art, figurines, and holiday collectibles from times past are indeed very appealing, and this nostalgia is not only interesting, but good for the soul. We hope to see you soon at Bayberry Cove.
