Flapper Old News
The term “flapper” first surfaced in Great Britain after World War I to describe young girls, still somewhat awkward who had not entered womanhood yet. The flappers image was of a “new breed” of young woman who wore provocative clothing, shortened her hair, enjoyed jazz music, and flaunted disdain for what was considered acceptable behavior at that time. Flappers were perceived as brazen for wearing too much makeup, drinking alcohol, smoking, driving cars and otherwise flouting most social norms. Flappers had their origins in a period of liberalism, social-political turbulence, and increased international cultural exchange that followed the end of the World War. Coco Chanel promoted the styles we associate with flappers. She designed clothes made for comfort and ease in wear making them revolutionary and quite modern. As a fashion statement to tell everyone they had short hair, the flappers wore cloche hats throughout the twenties. There seems to be a current trend in the fashion industry of fusing some “Flapper” elements into modern style.

Old meets New in Korea
Feb 2010 – LG has introduced a new-retro Television that currently is only available in Korea. Apparently the Koreans have followed the retro trend so popular elsewhere in the world. This cool little 14 inch TV has chrome legs and knobs (yes I said knobs). For the true retro experience this set will let you view you favorite shows in balcek and white, sepia or color for those who do not want to go too far back.
The Retro Vintage Bazaar announced today it is officially open for business through its new site at Retro-Vintage-Bazaar.com and will also offer a vast selection of ever changing items on the world-renowned artist community ETSY.
Some may ask why retro or vintage?
Unique, some items were custom made and others were made in small quantities. Good quality, designed to be used for years, most are well made with fine durable materials. The unusual older items are no longer manufactured or are now very expensive. Vintage items are a great value for money and generally selling for a cost far below a similar new product. Historical appreciation for previous generations and the skills of respected artisans as older products show attention to detail, some with hand finishing, unusual shapes, handmade quality. Stylish, vintage has been favored by creative personalities because it offers a wide range of imaginative styles and an opportunity to have something truly uncommon. A good investment, some buy to collect these high quality vintage items and are often sought after by many collectors worldwide.
