The rise of vintage from fashion to furniture has been well documented on blogs and in the media .

But as more businesses rebrand second hand as shabby chic will retro style drop out of favour?

"Even in the event you turn back two or three years you utilized to get real bargains. You could bid on old furniture on eBay and have it for 99p, now the same items are £60 or £70," says Estelle Riley.

Ms Riley sells "shabby chic" furniture and accessories inside West Midlands over the business she co-owns, The Secret Garden.

But recently the recognition of vintage has caused its problems.

"We used to go to charity shops and pick-up furniture for close to outright you can not make it happen now," she said.

Initially people bought second-hand furniture and restored it because it was all they can afford.

But then they started to just like the old-fashioned look and sought after pieces that may be painted or distressed to recreate the vintage look at home.

And regardless of the challenges in seeking out a bargain she believes vintage continues to be rising.

"We only setup the business in February but we've noticed vintage fairs are getting to be really popular," she said.

But vintage could be a victim of their success, in accordance with Collette Costello.

The Manchester-based designer creates clothes and bags according to designs through the past.

She said: "The market is being a bit saturated. Quite often an event will say it's vintage however, you go to see they've adopted the saying vintage to sell used."

Vintage is defined as representing the high-quality products of the past like designer clothing or classic cars - but to many it has turned into a catch-all term for any situation that looks old - whether or not the item itself is new.

'Become wise'

"I sell stuff that is inside the type of vintage but everything I make is fresh. Too many people are taking shoddy goods and selling them as vintage - the product quality is going down," she said.

"Consumers defintely won't be enthusiastic about a couple of years time as prices increase and the ones become a good idea to it."

Charity Oxfam launched its vintage section online and saw sales through its website shoot up by 400%.

The service, allowing Oxfam's 700 shops to publish vintage items on the market online, was set up 36 months ago as soon as the charity noticed lots more people were typing the term "vintage" in to the website's search box.

Caroline Swarbrick, Oxfam's trading events manager, said the charity ensured volunteers knew what genuine vintage was and failed to label things as vintage should they were just used.

"We're really careful to talk to our volunteers and inform them retro means retrospective, so it will be made in the design of a certain era, whereas vintage is anything over two decades old, so no later than the 80s.

"If it's over a century old it's antique."

Just three weeks ago the site recorded its highest ever sales generating £4,000 in a single week.

The charity even includes a vintage shop in Manchester - Oxfam Originals - and boutiques scattered around the UK which sell vintage goods.

Whether vintage continues to be going up or beginning decline, everyone agrees items in the 1950s are still the biggest draw for those seeking an escape from economic doom and gloom.

Ms Costello said: "A lot of fabric was applied in skirts and the standard was high - shops wouldn't make skirts prefer that now simply because they would cost too much money.

The 50s style speaks a lot to women's endless fixation on body shapeCatherine Wright, Hepwrights Boutique

"There was an exuberance concerning the 50s. After the war people didn't take things too seriously - we look back into it as being a more pleasurable time."

Catherine Wright thinks one other reason for that appeal could be the hourglass shape of 1950s women's clothing.

The vintage boutique owner, who sells clothes and collectibles from her Southampton shop, said: "If you take a look at High Street fashion this has been slouchy sportswear for a long time.

"Fashion very naturally swings and yes it was time for the look to return.

"The 50s style speaks quite definitely to women's endless fixation on body shape - it is extremely attractive to wear a huge skirt that could you could make your bottom disappear."

But despite the rise of vintage threatening to flood industry, she said she wasn't concerned.

"It's kind of inevitable how the bubble will burst but vintage will still be here because people is still thinking about beautiful old things."
