The first image in the gallery displays a very strange-looking, leather-bound rotary phone with sewn up laces across the length of the receiver.

Surrounding the bottom of the unusual phone, you can see a leather belt and more black lace, which really help give the phone a fancy aesthetic.

Implications - Vintage is hip and people are going crazy for unique one-of-a-kind items that represent their personal style. People who like vintage are looking for not only clothes and accessories, but interesting items for their homes. Marketing items that look vintage will generate good business because people see them as unique. An item that is not truly vintage will not stop people from buying into it.
