~This purse I found during an antique shopping spree we took on Brigid’s birthday. It is made up of beautiful red leather, with a wonderful snap like clasp on the top (I love the clasps on purses from the 30s-40s-50s! So sturdy and durable!) I’m suspecting it is from the 40s because of the style of it.
|Love, love, LOVE the lining!! Sooo cute!
The material looks a lot like the fabric on the quilt
skirt I’m planning on making…
~This lovely thing my Mom and Dad bought for me for my birthday. I love, LOVE this purse, and I found a splendid little magic trick it can do…
|Do you see the undone handle there?|
TADA!! can’t see it very well in this photo, but- remove the handle… and…
VOILA! An instant clutch! And what’s more, the handle fits inside! 😀 I love things like this 🙂
|A simply charming 50s (?) hat I found at Goodwill|
This lovely specimen I picked up a few weeks ago at Goodwill! I am in need of a hat pin to wear it properly, which there are plenty of around our local antique stores- I just haven’t gotten up enough courage (if you can call it that) to spend $15 on one 😛
Someday I suppose…

Right: Naturalizers (leather! :)) $5
Well, I must admit, these aren’t actually vintage. I picked them up the other day at Goodwill, and am hoping to wear them this fall for 30s through early 50s themed outfits, which I think I’ll be able to pull off quite nicely 🙂
My amazing $30-ish steal 😀 I LOVE this dress. I purchased it at our favorite vintage store quite a few months ago, but have never gotten around to posting it until now.
I’m thinking it is from late 40s to early 50s because of the kimono sleeves and full skirt.
|Lovely gathering detail|
|kimono sleeves, wrap front, piping|
I must admit however that I did have to mend a few minor holes; but besides that, it was in perfect condition!
|The beautiful (silk we think!) material graced
in beautiful piping all down the front…
|I believe the dress was homemade by someone
because it has no tag and the piping and pinked
seams give the impression that it is so
|The “squeeze-y” clasp|
Well that’s all for now! Hope you’ve enjoyed rummaging through our vintage finds!
