Looks like I started my Christmas shopping early this year!
My Mom is hard to buy for, she doesn't like to get new things like clothing for Christmas and since she is disabled, she can't use anything for the house.
But she loves vintage things, and that is why I ended up loving vintage things, because I grew up surrounded by it. I made a vintage stock purchase this week and there were several items in the load that I will be keeping to give to her for Christmas.
First is this older wool crepe and silk dress that I believe is from the early 1900s. It should fit one of her dolls. Next were two early 1900s parasols with fancy handles. We can display them with her dolls or in her baby strollers.
Next is a cute little hand knit sweater with bunnies on it and an embroidered bunny bib. And then a silk bonnet and quilted booties.
The lady who got this lot of vintage clothing for me was helping an older lady clean out her attic. My lady ended up with some amazing 1930s Easter decorations from the house - several papier mache candy holders in bunny shapes, celluloid bunnies in cars, Easter baskets etc. It is so hard to find old Easter items.
I made such a fuss over this old unused packet of egg dye that she gave it to me. I just thought it was a great old packet - from the 1930s, with the packets of dye still inside.
That's all for my Mom.
Below is the box of 60+ pieces of mostly doll clothing with a some baby items that I also bought. They're from the 1930s. The older lady's mother made many of the pieces. All will eventually be listed on the website for sale.
The fabric is the background of the above photos is one of the dresses that I bought in this lot too, about a dozen custom made dresses from the 1960s, along with 10 hats.
