• I do NOT follow for follow or promote blogs. I follow blogs for their individuality and content. Please don’t ask me to follow your blog.



  • I do not follow blogs that use weheartit or pinterest as a “source”- those are NOT sources. Just go to the original posts and re-blog- that after all is the purpose of tumblr- to re-blog something you like- not re-post. If you don’t know the difference between re-blogging and re-posting please read this post.



  • I don’t take requests. I’m sorry I just don’t have time. I get a lot of people asking for me to post all my pics of a certain subject- that is what google is for. This is a personal blog and I re-blog and post what I want and or like.



  • If you are looking for something specific on this blog please go to the Tags page.



  • Please don’t ask me what blogs you should follow, I don’t really follow blogs similar to mine.



  • Please don’t send me questions regarding religion or politics- thats not what this blog is about. I do not argue or debate with people online.



  • Info on the Vintage Prom dress posts can be found here.



  • Info on my Romance Comics edits here. I use google. They are heavily edited and I do not know where you can read them online.



  • Not everything I post is what you may consider “vintage”.





  • I make my own gifs with photoshop, have a ton of my own scans and images (most from years ago and I have no original source for). Everything else is sourced in the description with a link. 



  • No I do not ever wish I could live in vintage eras. The racism, homophobia, medical practices, lack of women’s rights and many other HORRIBLE atrocities make it very far from "the good old days". Though I do love the films, music and fashion I can’t abide the society and “social norms” of those times.



  • I don’t have twitter, facebook or pinterest. 



  • I’ve always been interested in vintage stuff. It started with watching classic films and tv shows with my grandparents. I started buying books, vintage magazines and stills to scan years ago and continue to buy more every week to scan and share.





Favorite Stuff



I mostly listen to- Old punk, deathrock, industrial, some old goth and 80s stuff. I also like most forms of rock, old jazz and blues.

No I can’t make a list of favorite bands/songs because it would take way too much time.



I love comic book stores.
