Tons of new stuff coming!

This beautiful Persian lamb sweetie just found a new home last week--add that one to the list of things that I almost kept for myself!
Brought home this sweet Lilli Diamond jersey in a rich cocoa brown...absolutely drool-worthy ;)
Also hoping to get some of these fab 50s sewing patterns up--put the first few on ebay yesterday, but have a bunch to go--great time of year coming for sewing projects! I've been sooo busy...Buying (the fun part) and now listing, I am well-stocked with vintage for the next few weeks. Just came into an estate purchase of many 60s dresses I'm hoping to get ready in the next few days. Many new listings will go to ebay first, some to etsy, so watch 'em both!

The perfect summer Estevez hostess Maxi dress!

Nothing says summer like this garden party print Vintage 60s Eva Gabor style Estevez! I've just listed it. It's a crisp but soft triacetate over silky nylon lining that follows the length of the skirt. Lovely construction and would be so flattering (if only yours truly was a little more petite *sigh*).

For the lingerie lovers, I am listing this weekend a rainbow of sherbet-hued vintage slips including a few Van Raaltes--those will be on ebay under my houndlover68 id.

Look at this crazy purse! Me love, me love :)

I love to admire handbags but am sooo clumsy with them. I recently 'fessed up that my very first croc--red leather it was-- a gift to boot, about the third time I used it I dumped an entire latte in it. Gads. Anyway, I thought this gator one was particularly gawk-worthy. It's available from etsy seller ArtBoxDesigns.

VBO Sale starts in just a few hours!

Don't forget to go check it out. I have been listing for a couple of weeks to get items (some new, some relists) ready for the big sale. Remember, some sellers, but not all, will drop prices the last day of the sale--if it's something you really want though, don't take a chance because they're all buy it now items. Here's a link to the seller discussion of just a few preview items--

It officially starts tonight/Friday morning at 12:00 midnight PDT. Loads of cute 30s 40s 50s 60s 70s 80s vintage dresses, lingerie, coats and jackets, pants, tops, and accessories as well as household items, linens and sewing patterns.

Most of the packages I ship out will include at least one freebie--I can't wait to get back to Etsy selling because that's very typical for me on that site and I have a TON of fabulous scarves, slips and odds and ends that like to find their way into outgoing packages :)

BIG Vintage Sale coming up--get ready!

Well, vinties, while I normally promote other selling sites more, our seasonal VBO sale is quickly approaching on eBay! Dozens of sellers will be featuring hundreds of items to move quickly. Here's the skinny for those of you not familiar:

1. Sale starts at midnight Pacific time--on this date it will begin 12am PDT May 22 and continue until May 26. Sellers will continue to add more items in the first couple of days, and some may drop the price on unsold items even more, so check back again later in the sale.

2. Find the items by searching for "VBO" in the title. Some items may say they're listed for 30 days--the sellers will just remove vbo from the title if it doesn't sell by sale end...grab it if you want it! The first day or so is historically the most competitive.

3. Items in the sale will be priced at $19.99 USD or less on a buy-it-now basis. Most items will be one of kind, so don't hesitate if you see something you love. Keep in mind, some sellers are pricing more aggressively than may see some items at close to regular price and some at a real blowout, most will be a great deal.

4. Almost every eBay vintage seller will be delighted to offer combined shipping (even if the other item(s) is not a VBO item) or accomodate some special request--just ask!

5. And finally, don't limit your search to the vintage clothing category--some items will also be listed in sewing, jewelry, housewares, etc. This sale is traditionally clothing but also offers other types of vintage items!

Feel free to contact me with any questions! Many of the items I personally have listed now will be converted to VBO items next week and I'll be adding more during the next week:

Bringing out the summer vintage....

Ahh, it's sure been a long cold one so it's nice to bring out visions of spring and summer. Like this too cute Hawaiian vintage sundress, new old stock textured 60s pantyhose, and the wonderful red pinup 60s swimsuit (which sold almost as soon as it went up, thanks)
