What’s the difference between antique and vintage?
An antique is an item over 100 years old. Although it is becoming more common for items of 50+ years to be considered antique. Vintage means an item with some age, normally 10 to 50 years old. For example items in the style of a period such as 1960s, 1970s or 1980s.
