Dear vintage lovers,
Today we go back in time, until the sixties. There has never been a decade quite like the sixties; the diversity, conflicts, hope, anger, the music, the dance crazes and the fun that characterized these years are captured here. The 60s decade was a decade of change. Not only were those changes evident in fashions but world events, music of the 60s, automobiles, toys, and individual self expression as displayed during the largest outdoor rock concert ever performed, Woodstock.
The Hippie movement officially kicked off with the Human Be-In at San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park. A flood of young people headed west to experience the “Summer of Love.”
America went into turmoil in 1968 with the escalation of the Vietnam War, chaotic protests outside of the Democratic National Convention in Chicago and the assassinations of Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy.
The 1960s came to an end with triumphs like the moon landing and the Woodstock Arts and Music Festival, as well as severe low points like Altamont and the beginning of the Vietnam War draft lottery.

In 1968 Bob Dylan returned, after a serious motorcycle injury, and spread is music to the world! He also revealed some facts about his life on a Rolling Stone magazine: “I was on the road for almost five years. It wore me down. I was on drugs, a lot of things just to keep going. I don’t want to live that way anymore.”
