  • You've seen faux-vintage everywhere. From clothing to architecture, revived automobile designs, or in the plethora of copied or faked antiques, "vintage" signs and kitchen implements, scrapbook images, and the list goes on. Its all kitsch masquerading (or not, for consumers can be fools, if not ignorant) as authentic.

    Please don't buy it, or give it to your friends and loved ones.
