BTW. I was looking what tag should I put – Vintage or Retro. Wasnt shore so looked up on internet. This is what retrokids.com gave me:

Vintage
Generally speaking if the item is no older than an antique but not less than 20 years, it falls under the term vintage.  I have heard the term ‘true vintage’ as being at least 50 years old.  Interestingly however, the term vintage relates primarily to wine and is an altered form of the French word vendage, meaning “the grapes picked during a season.”

What can sometimes be confusing is that items that are vintage are often described as retro and so there is a one sided overlap of the two terms.

Retro
Wikipedia describes Retro style as “a style that is consciously derivative or imitative of trends, modes, fashions, or attitudes of the recent past. It generally implies a vintage of at least fifteen or twenty years. For example, clothing from the 1980s or 1990s could be retro.  Retrostyle is an outdated style or fashion that has become fashionable again.  The word “retro” derives from the Latin prefix retro, meaning “backwards, or in past times” – particularly as seen in the words retrograde, implying a movement toward the past instead of a progress toward the future, and retrospective, referring to a nostalgic (or critical) eye toward the past”.

But I still cant decide whitch one to put – retro or vintage.
