About

Vintage clothing and collectibles seller for over 25 years

I became interested in vintage clothing back in the 80s when I worked for a dinner theatre. Eventually, my husband and I owned our own theatre and I loved working with the costume designers. A lot of our costumes were vintage that we scrounged for in thrifts and flea markets.
Started selling vintage collectibles in our own shop and soon found selling online also. My love of vintage clothing soon took over and the collectibles fell by the wayside. Now we only sell online and at shows. Mostly clothing including hats, shoes, handbags, lingerie, dresses, suits and vanity items.

A NOTE ABOUT SIZE & MEASUREMENTS AND CONDITION:

HOW WE MEASURE:

LENGTH: The back of the neck to bottom of hem
BUST: Armpit to Armpit & doubled
WAIST: Sideseam to Sideseam at the waist & doubled
HIP: Sideseam to sideseam at the hip (usually fullest
part of the garment or about 9" below waist) and doubled
SLEEVE: Shoulder seam to bottom of sleeve
SHOULDER: from shoulder seam to shoulder seam across the back
SKIRT LENGTH: Waist to hemline
Please remember that a garment won't be comfortable, if the measurements are the exact same as your body measurements. Allow a little room for movement. This extra fabric is called EASE.
Ideally the correct amount of ease for a garment is: (unless it's stretchy, you'll be O.K. without)

BUST: 1 1/2 "
WAIST: 1"
HIP: 2"(for bending & sitting)

So please measure yourself carefully. It's usually better to compare the item to a garment of similar cut and fabric and fits you well.
