When the tag says
Its probably not vintage.
If the tag says
Remember appearance isn’t everything. It was probably made recently to look like it’s old.
Lesson #2: You have to dig through a lot of crap to find something good. I mean, tons.
Lesson #3: Be picky. Even if its the superbestdealofthecentury, if you’re not going to wear/use it, it isn’t worth that $5.99. Go donate that to a homeless person.
Lesson #4: You can usually tell a lot by the tags on an item. Some things appear old/vintage-y, but if they have a tag that looks like something you would find at Forever21 today, it’s most likely newer. I’ve noticed old tags tend to be prettier (fancier writing for the designer’s/maker’s name, for example). And yellow-er for some reason…
More to come.

Phew… think i got that figured out. Tumblr’s a lil more confusing than blogspot, but it looks like it offers more. Shall be interesting.
