In the article the concepts of vintage, retro and shabby chic are discussed using making as an analytical tool. What they have in common is the associations of history and the past that they arouse, and as these styles are carefully planned and even made by customers, creative elements are involved. The things that are addressed as vintage, retro and shabby chic are often transformed in one way or another before they are used. The concept of making is to be understood in a broad sense: from activities connected to consuming, such as picking and combining things, to the actual adjusting, transforming, making or crafting things in order to create a certain style and/or to create “oldness”. These kinds of processes are seen as parts of an ongoing creative practice connected to everyday life. They involve knowledge of different kinds: of history, fashion and design styles, aesthetics, craft techniques and materials. The main questions asked are what the concepts mean from a making perspective and how things addressed as vintage, retro and shabby chic affect people in processes of creating and making.
