ANTIQUES AND VINTAGE COLLECTIBLES Vintage General Electric Chrome 9 Cup Pot Belly Coffee Pot Percolator Retro Works:

So, What is an antique?
What is Vintage?
What makes something, Collectible?
Many people will give you very different answers
It depends on, if they collect cars, toys, stamps, beanie babies, Pez dispensers, or Roman empire coins.
There are NO true absolute standards that can be applied from one hobby to the next, and across different time zones and countries.
Hence it is impossible to draw definitive lines, and usually is a judgement call on a case by case basis
Nonetheless, I have come up with from the past 20 years of collecting with simple but effective set of definitions (written below)
that I know use as my personal "rulebook" for pretty much most of my collecting and selling
on this website and for my auction listings on eBay:
1- Collectible: Any item that no longer in standard retail circulation but is still in demand for purchase in the general consumer population. This includes any products that were produced with a limited pre set quantity or for a limited duration period. A limited time period collectible (e.g. Star Wars movie glass) may also be called a "Ephemeral" Collectible.
2- Retro: Any collectible item that was synonymous or clearly identifiably associated with a previous historical time Period due to specified obsolete Fashion and or Pop Culture. This usually means an item that is at least 10 years old but not greater than 25 years. Examples: Vinyl Record Players, Kay Way Pants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
3- Vintage: Any collectible item that has aged enough to become very difficult to find in "like New" condition because of wear and tear and common usage. This usually means an item that is at least 25 years old but not greater than 80-90 years. Examples: original Hot Wheels Red Lines, 1960's Kenner Easy Bake Oven, Original Slinky, Kenner Spirograph, Original Fisher Price Wooden Little People.
4- Antique: Any collectible item that has aged enough to become extremely difficult to find in any condition (good or bad) because extreme long time period and obsoleteness of the item. This usually means from the 19th Century or Earlier, but as the 21st century rolls along, so must this definition must change. The main time periods of the 20th century were Pre WWI, WWII, Mid Century, and Modern. I now include anything pre-dating WWI as "antique" and the art deco pre WWII stuff will definitely be considered as antiques by the year 2020.
