Vintage Miscellany – June 12, 2016

We have just returned home from a coastal roadtrip.  I’m always amazed at how much stuff we can cram into my little Ford Focus, so I can only imagine the luxury of space in this mid 1950s Ford Fairlane.  I just know that trunk is full of great old stuff.

Being in a laid-back coastal village means I’m short on news this week.  I was just too lazy to spend much time doing my regular internet reading.  Unplugging is nice, from time to time.  Try it.

  1. I agree – tuning out and turning everything off is a balm for the soul sometimes! That said, what great pieces you always turn up, notwithstanding the break. I was fascinated by the article about rare vintage (so sorry that I long ago got rid of the very cool vintage Levi’s that I had in the half dozens of pairs during the 1980s and 1990s 😦 ) I haven’t read the museum article yet, but I know exactly what that is all about. I wanted to be an archivist at one point (I even went so far as to get the degree) and for the fear of the market returned to complete my grad work in economics. Turns out it was, sadly, a good decision. I speak with archivists often in various countries and the situation is pretty dire in most related cultural fields.


  2. The state of museums is something that gets me. I love museums, but they are honestly notoriously difficult to break into without certain education these days. A history degree will get you no where anymore. They all want masters in museum studies, and five years experience! Sometimes in specific areas, like displays or archives. I’ll have to take a full read of the article, but this has just been my experience when job hunting.
