I have added some lovely vintage deadstock stockings from the 1930s, a 1950s hat and gloves, a box of 1940s pin-curling pins, 1930s rayon scarf, a 60s does 20s dress, 1930s garter belt, 1940s dress and suit, 1930s dress, 1950s handbag, dress pattern and bolero top and some deadstock beaded hairnets from the 40s and 50s. All are featured in my Etsy shop here.
I love the style and sophistication of 1930s fashion and have amassed a large collection of sewing pattern imagery from the era on Pinterest and thought it would be nice to share some of them here. The evening gowns of the time are my favourite with their elegant lines, bias cuts and daring open backs. I would dearly love to get my hands on some of these beauties!

More vintage shoe love More glorious vintage shoes from the 1920s to the 40s from my Pinterest vintage shoe board. The variety and colours never cease to amaze me! (taken from my other blog) Advertisements
I just have to share the wonderful project of my friend Chantal Filson who purchased a Victorian manor from 1886 (and extra cottage from 1860) on 5 acres in Allegany County, NY this year. She is bringing this amazing home back to it’s original glory and will eventually be hiring it out for weddings and functions and for film productions.
Chantal has worked in Hollywood in costuming and has always loved the era of the property she has purchased (now aptly named ‘1886’). Her attention to detail when refitting the house is astounding and it is looking stunning! If you’d love to have your wedding or a function there in 2017 check out the website. www.1886location.com
You can also follow the (sometimes hilarious) everyday accounts of her progress on her Facbeook page.
Another bunch of amazing vintage shoes from the 1920s to the 40s from my Pinterest vintage shoe board. The colour and vibrancy of the styles match anything we have today.
