Week 34, 2017
Not an Odd Ball photo this week, more an oddity which seems to be on the increase on our internet.
Over recent weeks I have been posting items
for sale for my Father-in-law.
He is downsizing.
One such item was this hand painted vase.
Below is the advertisement I posted on Facebook after researching how old ‘Vintage’ items should be to be called ‘vintage’

Vintage Hand Painted Vase
Asking $40.00 O.N.O
Approx 10 cm high
The 1978 image was found inside the top
Definitely a New Vintage (20+ years) piece, and well on the way to being a True Vintage (50+ years) item……based on the 1978 date.
Deceased estate and downsizing, no further use.
Local pick up only at…….
And this is a comment I received:
You need a new calculator as its only 39 years young not more than 50 as you’ve stated! 2017- 1978 = 39.

Personally, I think
Literacy and Customer/Public Relations courses
should be next on the agenda, me thinks.
Do you have these situations arise in your area?
