RainbowValleyVintage's Shop Announcement

*** From January 2016 I will no longer be offering layaways/payment instalment plans - items must be paid for in full in one payment. I will also only reserve items for a maximum of 7 days (exceptions may be made for previous buyers).***

Welcome to Rainbow Valley Vintage!
I specialise in mid 20th century womenswear, concentrating particularly on 1950s cotton dresses and skirts with novelty or typical floral prints. This is because this is exactly what I collect myself!!
I absolutely LOVE 1950s day dresses, and just can't stop buying them. I buy almost all of them in the hope they'll be right for me, but most of the time they're not, and so I decide to sell them on. I find this VERY hard to do, I must say. If I had the space and money, I would keep every last one of them!
My own collection is slowly getting smaller - one body just can't wear 200 plus novelty print skirts ... can it? (Especially if that one body has an ever increasing girth!). But I still own over 100 dresses by the highly collectable British label Horrockses Fashions, of which one or two may occasionally show up in here.
I'm not really a true "business", just an absolutely obsessive collector, who needs to sell dresses to buy more dresses! A lot of the time I will be willing to do swaps, so if you see anything you like but can't really afford, do feel free to send me pics of 50s dresses you have. If I'm not desperate for money (to buy more vintage) at that time, and you have something I like, a swap may always be a possibility.
So, of course I don't have an actual physical shop, but if you happen to be in the Shrewsbury area (I'm about 13 miles south west of the centre, near the Welsh border) in future, you can visit my home and have a look through my rails and try anything on. If you send me a message we can arrange a time suitable to both of us.
I hope you enjoy browsing through my Etsy shop!
Thank you for stopping by!! Tessa
