I am not on Facebook so I am going to reply here to the article about "Is is Vintage or Just Vintage Inspired". I found it very interesting and also alarming. As someone who has bought and sold Vintage Clothing for years I think the only answer is a smart buyer. If you are buying Vintage then check out the item - is the fabric a good quality one, are the seams stitched well, what does the label say and how does it look. You are always going to have buyers who only want the "look" and want to wear an item once, but thankfully the "real" vintage clothing buyers know the difference and look for it.MOM
