I'm hoping to continue this idea from my previous blog and to make it a more regular feature (if I have the time and I remember!) I always check out ebay to see what the market is like, to occasionally buy items for myself and to drool over other seller's fab stuff. Here are a few fantastic items that I spotted this morning. I am not affiliated with any of these sellers.
An incredible 1940s swimsuit with matching hat and purse -
Small but fantastic 1920-30s embroidered peasant style dress, I've always one of these and this is the dream example that I've been looking for, but I wish it were a few inches bigger (it's a 32 bust, 24 waist) - Check out the selling price - I told you it was a great item! (darn, that means I probably won't find one in my size cheap enough if everyone likes them this much)
I love old catalogs. Not only are they a great research resource on vintage clothing, they are alot of fun to look at. I wish I could take $1000 and go back in time and place an order from the catalogs! This one is a Bellas Hess Winter 1930-31 catalog. It's a big one with clothing and household items too -
Bellas Hess 1930-31 Winter catalog
A 1946 Vogue Pattern Counter book - These are really great finds. They are the big book that you looked through at fabric store to choose clothing patterns from. Another great fashion resource. I can't believe this still has only one bid as of 9/18, check it out, you may get a bargain. It's bound to go for a high price.
