When you hear the word millennial, what goes through your mind? Well many things of course! This generation is known to be the most unpredictable. They tend to live in urban apartments with a rustic exposed brick wall and pipe exposed concrete ceilings.
This generation is known for shying away on the big purchases like cars and houses different from the baby boomer generation. Instead, they spend on the image of their lifestyle in terms of concerts, travel, vintage cameras, cassette tapes etc.
Born in 1980-2000, this generation it what we call “90’s obsessed” where we watch the classic movies and play the Beatles cassette tape in our fathers’ old car. This generation is highly nostalgic so when it comes to antiques, they will to stay away from bigger items and find ones that are more reflecting their childhood memories.
Interesting enough, the love for antiques and the vintage old school vibes is bringing baby boomers and millennials together. Millennials are attracted to antiques for sentimental reasons and value durable materials as items used to be made locally instead of being mass produced in China.
Drive-in movies are a thing from the past that is highly mentioned in many blockbuster movies from the 90’s. Because of the connection to their childhood, millennials hunt for the drive in vibes. and as a result, these businesses are thriving from this love of what we call the vintage era.
