The Vintage Quiz.
The Vintage Buyers and Sellers Quiz. I am a very lucky person. I am often asked H.D.Y.G.T.F.A.J.? (or, How Did You Get That Awesome F****g Job?) There are many perks to dealing in the vintage world aside from the clothing and the experiences. There are also countless people I meet and get to know personally. We discuss what’s cool and what’s not in whatever corner of the world they may live. I learn interesting bits of this and that - almost always things I would never expect from even less likely suspects. Vintage dealers are a global network of treasure hunters. Vintage buyers are another sort of category, both good and, well, kind of just as good, sometimes. If you’re a seller, then this quiz is for you as a sort of customer to seller training exercise. I will chuckle to myself, assuming that you’re doing the same while reading this. So you want to buy some vintage clothing? No problem!
