I have this lovely batch of 1930s celluloid brooches coming to my Etsy store. The Navy ‘Buddy’ is 1940s – WW2 era and very rare to find intact and has already been sold as has the red manta.

Some of of the beautiful 1930s loungewear inspired items that Vecona Vintage carry in their range. I want them all!! The sailor pants are especially gorgeous. I wish more companies would start doing the ‘low rise’ cut in ladies trousers again. So much more stylish and comfortable. The ‘Cap Calloway’ cap is also a winner!
