Immediatly I just wanted to scream out "Vintage" but that was because I assumed "vintage" as being referred to as vintage wines, vintage hardware, and vintage art.
But then I gave it some thought, and still agree that vintage exceeds modern in so many ways as in quality, artistic value, creativity, etc.
However, modern useful items are the winner.
I once went to antique store and found a crank egg beater. Thought that was cool, until I took it home to use it, and found that my Kitchen Maid mixer was exceedingly more efficient.
