Vintage antique home decor vintage is forever timeless

Although style trends change from year to year , antiques to vintage have survived the test of time. Family heirlooms are still cherished for the treasures they are. The fact that a family has passed an item down from generation to generation has always been a tradition and one that never fails to touch my heart. The collector is still actively collecting even in this slow ecomony , only not as actively as before. But, you can view the auction sites and see that collectors are holding onto their items instead of cashing in because after all, when one collects , it's a joy and a fabulous addition to the home. Home decor has become the most popular revenue for sellers ( besides costume jewelry ). Home decor has a become a hobby. I think there are more people enjoying creating their own home decor style than before. The home decor magazines are still enjoyed as a beginning point, but, when I go out to the antique shops and malls around here lately I am very happy to say, people are shopping for things to add to their home's decor. So, it does not matter that the housing market has gone down. What does matter is that most of us still have a roof over our heads, and we are still creating a cozy nest to rest our heads. Home sweet home appears to be as true today as yesterday. From me to you , your home is where your heart is Be sure to stop in and browse my shops to see what you can find for your home today or RC Antiquestoo on Ruby Plaza.

Vintage Jazz created blend updated music style of today nascent is in the house

A few months ago while in search of ning networks to link my RC Antiques shop to and to research for Linda's Shop Talk on Ruby Lane video series , I happened upon , This is Vintage Now .

Not only is this a facebook page you should fan , ,
but there's so much more.

The graphics of  Caro Emerald's album draws your attention, but when you click to hear her songs , her voice is true jazz. ( this is a youtube entry, you will love it )
The kind of voice that makes your hips sway while your lips hum the tunes.
My favorite, " Lipstick on your collar " has become a favorite of everyone I tweeted it to.

This blog introduces you to the actual compilation complete with links.

Caro Emerald is my favorite, but you will find others that will strike your fancy too.

Click  on this link and enjoy everything David Gasten has created to promote this fabulous music by these talented artists

There you will see many more, not just Caro Emerald.

Vintage Life Magazine will also feature This is Vintage Now ,  the nascent movement  is fast becoming popular everywhere.

A new style incorporating swing and jazz from the 1940's to 1960's era.

Although music is a topic I have never discussed, this compilation deserves to be heard.

Remember, if I love it, you will too. Not for Punk Rockers, or the likes of that , but for fabulous rich vocals with a beat that is a real treat. From me to you , the beat goes on

Latest Shop Talk video a little something special to say thank you

Youtube videos connect to vintage and antiques what's it all about

Youtube has been around a long time.

Now, antique to vintage sellers are beginning to realize they can use youtube to their advantage.

Ruby Lane was the first site to offer a talking person video titled Linda's Shop Talk. This talk gives tips to help improve sales.

That's only the beginning.

It's time to show your faces, connect with the Internet world face to face.

In the old days, 7-11 convenience stores were on every corner. Along comes a super looking , I got to go there , Sheetz stores and 7-11 has become a blur.

Target stores has become the super store they are because of their fabulous advertising graphics. The store itself is set up the same as other stores, but those fabulous TV ads...that's the draw.

Don't get lost in the shuffle.

If you are an on line vendor, writer or whatever, go the extra step.

Do a video. Go beyond the photos of items set to music, get in front of that camera and talk.

Vintage shop owners are the best type of shop owners. They are survivors , they are what America has preached always, that you are free to be the best you can be.

Vintage shop owners were actually the first to say, quit throwing good things away, recycle. Reuse,  vintage is not only better made, but has stood the test of time.

Don't let your site or shop continue to run as vintage, perk it, do that video.

After finally learning how to do a one on one video, I promise you will be hooked, you will love it. Here's the latest Linda's Shop Talk video, see, I am finally enjoying it because I finally know how to relax and just talk to you, one on one

If the people on youtube become famous for doing weird unusual stuff, you can become the shop to visit because you do the youtube :-)

The best is yet to come.

From me to you, now, that's a cut :-)
