Items from the hippie era have become very popular collectibles. The hippie period lasted from about 1967 till maybe 1975. Many of the items that were sold in stores during that time period had flowery and psychedelic designs that often said Peace or Love and are easily recognizable.
It all started in 1967 in San Francisco with the legendary Summer of Love. By 1969 it was in full swing across the entire country and the Woodstock Festival became a monumental event. Eventually, it spread worldwide. Hippie fashions and values had a brief, but major effect on culture, music, television, film, literature, and the arts.
