American Duchess is having a sale. If you click the link you can see the pair I purchased. They are beautiful beyond words. I'll need to move the buttons, but that's not difficult, and I'm glad I bought them a size larger as they run narrow. The shoes come with extra buttons and replacement heels. The quality of these shoes is nothing short of incredible. If you've been admiring the shoes at American Duchess, now is the time to buy.
Screaming Rags has a beautiful 1930's necklace with red stones and the best floral design ever. I've had the pleasure of buying from this seller, and if I thought I could get that necklace around my fat, old, neck I would buy it in a second. Alas, it ain't happening-but any swan-necked readers out there with a taste for vintage should jump on this-it is beautiful.
Scent-Cerity is an eBay seller I've recently purchased a bottle of Courreges in Blue from. It arrived in perfect condition, thoughtfully packaged and the perfume quality was excellent. I've started hoarding bottles of Courreges in Blue because I love it, and the reformulation is terrible. This is a very good price, the bottle and box were also in good condition. Looking around the seller's shop, there are many super deals to be had.
Odona has a vintage bottle of Norell perfume in the 1/2 oz. size. $76.99 is a steal for this (Norell is getting hard to find) and though I'm tempted, I'm limiting my full bottle purchases these days due to space. I liked Norell, but I don't love it enough for a 1/2 oz. If YOU love it-this is a good opportunity to grab the perfume concentration for a reasonable price.
Vintage Hat Galore has an excellent selection of handbags as well. I'm eyeing the crocodile purse for myself. Located in the UK, the prices are so good they are still worth it even with shipping costs. Oh, and the hats? Let's just say the name of the shop is no exaggeration. Go have a look.
Past Perfect Vintage has a beautiful 1940's suit in a larger size that will knock your socks off. If you click the link, there's also a lovely appliqued cardigan on the same page. If I didn't already own similar pieces, I'd be getting out the credit card. I do like the cape detail on the suit.
Lesley's Girls Vintage has a stunning 1960's dress with the best plaid print ever. Seriously, this is a beauty, and at a good price as well.
Om Again Vintage has a pair of vintage, velveteen overboots that are to die for. Oh what I'd give for a pair in my size. I'm seriously considering these just to have in my collection.
Dandelion Vintage has an incredible vintage, 1940's velvet evening gown in a larger size. These don't come along that often in wearable condition (the dress has a few small issues, but nothing that would keep me from wearing it) and the price is quite reasonable compared to what I've seen in other shops. You could easily spend that much on a Made in China piece of junk that you'd wear once or twice before donating. This is a lifetime piece. If you have the boobs to fill it out and you've been seeking a vintage evening gown with some serious style-this might be your dress.
1860-1960 has an eBay auction page and if you're looking for a pair of unworn, 1930's shoes in a narrow size six-these might be your shoes! My beautiful crewel work coat came from this seller, and we had a great experience with the purchase. If you want these, you'd better hurry.
Viva Vintage Clothing has the most incredible fringed, Mr. Blackwell jumpsuit I've ever set eyes on. It won't fit me, but if you can pull this one off, it is a terrific deal. I promise, no one else will show up at a party wearing the same outfit.
Hopefully, you've enjoyed looking at what these sellers have on offer, and perhaps you'll bring some of these great items home for yourself. Do have a look around the sites, because there are so many great items I couldn't possibly link to them all. These are the places I look when seeking out perfume or interesting vintage. I am not being compensated in any way by any of them, but I have (happily) purchased from several).
...and if Mr. ETB is reading this, I wouldn't mind that blue coat for Valentine's Day.
