What do you call clothing for spoons?
“Silverwear.” grin
Vintage silverware, like my jewelry, made from vintage spoons from the 1930s made by my friend Angi who just opened her Etsy shop FamilyJewelTreasures! rose #silverware #silverjewelry
True-vintage, rare dresses, hats and more from the 1920s & 1930s will be added this week & next! #chartreuse #1930s
I didn't have these glasses out for this retro collection, but after we were halfway through, model Fizzy wanted to add more drama with Twiggy-style lashes, and I immediately remembered this awesome pair of Lucite glasses from the 1960s. Now available!

About RoseleinRarities

Sales 4,038
On Etsy since 2011

My high school class voted me "Belongs in the '70s." I should have seen this coming sooner...

My love for vintage fashion, photography, collecting and people (that's YOU!) combine to create what is, for me, the ideal full-time occupation for which I am so thankful! My latest venture is the opening of Wooly Foster, a vintage shop on Etsy for kids! https://www.etsy.com/shop/WoolyFoster

PRESENTATION
My goal is to present my vintage collections as accurately as possible. Each vintage piece is carefully fitted to each model based on their individual measurements in all size. We rarely clip or pin pieces to create a "better" fit for picture's sake, and items are never digitally edited. If our bodies were all the same, there would be only one size dress and I would need only one model!

HANDMADE WITH LOVE
There's something wondrously satisfying about handmade pieces and I tend to gravitate toward them in my collections. Fabrics and patterns that were once chosen by hand and created with such individualized detail in a now-dying art of truly one-of-a -kind pieces (except for on Etsy, of course!). My mother hand-made nearly everything her three children wore and played with, from frilly matching dresses to intricate baby dolls, and I've always admired the time and love she dedicated to create these everyday masterpieces special.

DESIGNER NAMES
There is also something magical about high-end vintage designer pieces—their detail, quality & luxury, metal zippers and union-made tags, things that are meant to last more than a single season to be cherished as heirlooms, two- sometimes three-piece original ensembles that you wonder how, after 60 some years, they could still have their mates. And, yes, I DO have a fondness for the '70s.

ROSELEIN LOGO
The Roselein Rarities logo and name is inspired by a colorful 1920s German banknote / paper currency series that illustrates the famous German poem "Heidenröslein" or "Little Rose of the Field." To me the poem symbolizes rare & beautiful encounters with the small things in life that touch us personally & make life worth living.

THE COLOR RED
Grandma always wanted to see me in my red dresses & declared red to be my color. Red is intense, heartfelt, and without words says love, desire, strength & passion. Most of the garments at Roselein Rarities either contain the color red or compliment it.

I hope you'll have a good time browsing Roselein Rarities and hopefully you'll find that special something! If I can help in any way, please let me know.

We'd love for you to keep updated with our awesome latest additions to the shop! Add Roselein Rarities to your Etsy favorites...and for fun updates & behind-the-scenes pictures, LIKE us on Facebook and Instagram!
