About

Bee Allergy Sends Woman Indoors

That's how it all started. I was a gardener bee keeper (forgot to mention that in my short bio..) and one day had an allergic reaction to a bee sting. It threw my life tospy-turvy, because at the time I was a professional gardener and wanted to expand my bee keeping. Suddenly I went from being all about the outdoors, to being all about the indoors.

I thought if I was going to be inside for a while, I might as well use my time wisely and that's when I began helping my Mother in her efforts to downsize her belongings. We found clothing from when she was a girl, from when my grandmother was young, and clothing from my great grandmother. So, I set up a shop. It's been fun taking this clothing and finding new and happy homes for it. I love to hear the stories of what happens to the clothing I sell. And so does my Mother. I have heard many wonderful ones.

After a time, I thought I'd expand a little and look for other cool stuff. That's what I do now. I look for things. I wash. I measure. I mend. I iron. And I take pictures of pretty people wearing pretty clothing. Then I take my dogs for a walk, feed the ducks and pet the cats and rabbit. Not bad. And last but not least, I get to meet really nice people from all over the world. How cool is that?

So that's my story in a very short nutshell. I'm adding new things daily (to my store and to my story!), so come back often. And check out my other Etsy store Medicinew2 for more vintage items.

May you find something you really love here that 's cool to wear and while you wear it, may you be blessed with many years of health and happiness!

Welcome to LuckiestDuck1 where I specialize in vintage lingerie and classically cool clothing.

I am drawn to clean lines, drapey fabrics that flatter, vibrant life-affirming colors and anything quirky and fun. Oh...how something feels is very important to me. I like a great silky satin, or a nubbly boucle.

Many items I have for sale come from my family's old New Hampshire farm, where my Mother still resides. Some of the clothing was her's as a young woman, or even her mother's or grandmother's. There's a lot of history in these pieces and if I know it, I make it a point to tell you about it. It's a gigantic thrill for her to know where these pieces end up and who's wearing them. We love your stories, too.

I love what I do. And I love my customers. My sincerest hope is you will be pleased with your purchase and come back again and again.
Best wishes,
Kathy

Additional policies and FAQs
HOW DO YOU KNOW WHAT AGE A GARMENT IS?

I can tell a lot by how it was made. Certain things are clues that help narrow the timeline down. Things like whether or not the seams were "pinked" ( cut with a special zip-zag pair of scissors as a means of finishing the edges) or whether or not a metal zipper or metal "slides" on the straps of a piece of lingerie were used. If there is a label, a union label, care instructions and manufacturing labels all help to narrow the timeline down, as well. Sometimes the previous owner remembers exactly when they purchased it. I research every garment and do my best. If you have specific insight into a garment or fabric I have for sale. I love to hear about that as well. It only helps to increase my knowledge.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHAT CONDITION THE GARMENT IS?

I go over my items at a minium of 3 times before it leaves my collection. I wash, iron/steam and have modelled most items and flaws are most often caught at one of those stages. I try to view them in different kinds of light, as this can show a previously hidden flaw or stain. I'm a fussy buyer myself, and I like to know exactly what condition an item is in prior to purchasing it. I relate the flaws that I would like to know about, if I were purchasing the item. I describe the dress in a way that I would feel comfortable buying it.

DO YOU WASH EVERY ITEM YOU SELL?

Yes and no. Most items I wash, but if I receive a dry cleanable item in clean condition, I pass that savings on to you. I always state if a dry cleanable item has been cleaned by me or not. My items are clean, fresh and in wearable condition, upon your receipt of them. In the rare exception where this is not the case, when washing would actually damage it, for instance, like with some delicate collectors' pieces, I always disclose it.

WILL YOU THINK I'M A PEST IF I CONVO YOU WITH A LOT OF PICKY QUESTIONS?

No. I will think you are very smart. I love questions.

I LOVE TO BUY LINGERIE, BUT WILL YOU RESPECT MY PRIVACY?

Absolutely. I don't relate the convos, items purchased or names of my lingerie customers. Not even to my husband. I keep that strictly private. I may relate that a certain piece was sold and to what country it was shipped. But that is it.
