Vecona Vintage – 1930s style

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!

Prohibition Clothing Company…hats

Last year I blogged about The Prohibition Clothing Company and featured some of their wonderful items. I recently went back to their website to discover they have more caps and some new promotional pics. I thought I’d share them with you here today.

For those new to PCC, they have hats and caps, back-belted jackets, trousers, plus-fours, shirts, vests, bow-ties and some great stuff like a leather book strap and vintage style tote bag. You can check out The Prohibition Clothing Company’s wares here: http://www.prohibitionclothing.com/

New to the Etsy shop – July 2014

Hi all! I have just added a load of new items to my shop. I recently came across 4 pairs of fantastic vintage shoes and several of them are deadstock items that have never been worn. Three of the pairs are from the 50s and the other is from the 40s. I still find it amazing whenever I come across vintage items that have never been worn or used since the day they were purchased, so I hope these find a good home 🙂 I also picked up 2 deadstock 1960s mens tiki style shirts, two 1920s hair combs, an amazing 1950s ‘atomic design’ silk scarf, a 1930s crocheted purse and collar with glass beads.  I also have some 50s earrings, an Art Deco buckle from the 30s, 50s handbag and a vesta case from around 1890. Enjoy!
