Vintage Vac Section ?
« on: March 20, 2017, 09:10:17 PM »
Hi all,

Just a thought and apologies if this has already been mentioned elsewhere on the forum (I'm still finding my way around) but how about a section dedicated to "vintage vacuum cleaners" of say more than 40 years old ? Maybe covering finds, restorations, or just a few photo's of your oldest vacuum etc.

It would keep all the oldies in one place (vacuums that is !  :grinn:) What do you think ?

Marc.

Probably a good idea. What we tend to do is when there are enough topics on a given sub heading, make a new room and move existing topics into it so it can grow legs. How we now have a Hoover room for example.

I'll have a browse in the next day or two to see if we have enough vintage topics.

Excellent news :thumbsup:
I'll see what I can contribute to it over the next few weeks too.

Jolly good.  :tiphat:

If anyone spots any topics about the place that should be in there do link me to them.

I suppose defining "vintage" is a another question.......

I wondered why my inbox filled up with 'your topic has been moved' notifications!

Top work, I must get off my arse and create more content, the bedroom ceilings do groan occasionally...
