Difference between Retro and Vintage

If you are like me you are associating retro and vintage with old things. But whats the difference of retro and vintage objects?

Retro style is a style that is imitative or consciously derivative of lifestyles, trends, or art forms from the historical past” (wiki), so it is in fact a product recently manufactured which looks old.
On the other hand vintage describes a product actually originating from the past and is still in use, such as second hand vintage cloths.
On a side note, items which surpass 100 years are considered antique instead (wiki).
