What a week for buying stock!
First, someone contacted me thru the website with some things to buy. I got about 40 1940-50s pieces from her that came by mail on Tuesday.
On Wednesday I bought about 100 dresses, most are 1960s, a few earlier, some later.
On Thursday one of my vintage ladies came to see me with a big load of goodness! It was a mix of stuff that she had been saving up awhile for me.
Kind of a mix of things. Not alot of dresses, but there were a few very super awesome 1930s 1940s dresses - I love the yellow gown, it has green beading. It has some stains that I'm not sure will come out though, so does the coral dress. But the black, floral and the rust gowns are really nice.
There were 32 pieces of 1930s and 1940s silk and rayon lingerie! Yummy. I was in heaven going thru those because I love lingerie from that era. The peach satin robe below has blue velvet appliques. Next photo is a sample of some of the slips and nightgowns, they're in larger sizes too.
Black sheer striped panties and bra! The peach panties are rayon jersey with garters. I like rayon jersey, why did they stop making underwear in rayon jersey?
There were also 106 hats. Yes, 106 hats! I really, really needed some hats, but wow! I got 'em now.
I had a headache most of today, so I didn't get much work done. I did a few loads of laundry (lingerie and some of Wednesday's dresses) I took these photos and photos of about 20 of the hats. I was thinking I could type the hats up quickly for this week's update, but I'm not sure I'll get that far, I won't be here Saturday. So next week I'll have to kick my behind into gear ad get alot of stock ready for the following update.
What did I keep for myself, you ask? That will be for another post!
