Vintage 1950s Fashion Frocks Illustrations PDF - Salesman Sample Cards Collection 80+ - INSTANT DOWNLOAD

Instant download


When I recently rediscovered my large stack of 1950s Fashion Frocks Inc. salesman sample cards, I thought I could part with them. Then I realized that I could share them with the world while avoiding postage costs or damage to my hoard. Cards feature fabric swatches and descriptions of dresses that women sold. First door-to-door and then in Tupperware-like party settings.

Listing is for a PDF version of all 80 plus card fronts and backs (when available) from my personal collection of vintage fashion ephemera which will be offered here. The first 50 cards were individually scanned into a 19MB PDF and the rest split into two smaller PDFs.

Returns & exchanges

In over a decade of selling items over the internet, I have never offered returns unless I made some error in the listing. So far it's happened twice. Flaws are noted and photographed when needed or available upon request. As a seamstress I excel at measuring garments, recommend you measure something of similar style and am always happy to walk you through how something might fit.

As I specialize in items from 1968 and before, everything is sold as found in used condition.

Should I make an error, returns may be accepted with notification of the problem and the customer agrees to pay shipping both ways. A 15% restocking fee will apply.

Additional policies

Please note that our vintage clothing is shown on models who fit it properly. Any pinning or modification to fit will be noted in listing.
