Interesting vintage panel. An old Montgomery Ward piece. Will make a wonderful drape for a pantry at our farm. A real find...

About

The Life of a Vintage Hoarder

Well, not exactly...I have space to walk around ! But I am an addict of thrift shopping. There is just too much beautiful, historical record of fashion hiding away, waiting to be discovered at the multitude of thrift stores in my area. I can usually be found popping into a nearby store or two every week. I specialize in clothing from the 30s to the 70s, for now, there is still too much 80s and now 90s fashion to choose from and I find the 70s styles and earlier are becoming more rare. That 's the way I keep my "hoard" in check. Please enjoy a leisurely visit to my shop and see if there is something special just for you ! If you can't get enough vintage goodness, please visit some of the wonderful member shops of the Etsy Vintage Team. Just search for the tag "etsyvintageteam" or visit the team blog, Facebook and Pinterest pages using the links below:

    For many years, I've been fascinated with the history behind the fashions we have worn in the past and I love collecting all types of examples from classic wool suits of the 40s to crazy bold prints of the 70s. Have fun perusing my collection 24/7 !
