Vintage Hunting- Part 1

This past weekend, I ventured on a vintage hunt to an estate sale, early in the morning, and then a vintage appointment with an antique dealer in desperate need of downsizing that same afternoon.  Part 1 of my spoils is a beautiful 1920s lace dress and a beautiful full length 1940s gown.  Because the items have not been repaired or cleaned, I have not shot them on my dress form yet, but here's a small preview.  ( I apologize for the lighting, but I was too excited to worry about it!)

I was unable to capture the full length of the dresses, but they are quite breathtaking and may be the best deals I've yet to purchase.  I bought the 1920s dress for $5 because of some stains and the 1940s gown for $12!  What a great weekend.  More to come tomorrow with some more fabulous finds!  I'm so excited!


  1. gorrrgeous! Especially that lacey one, I love old lace.

  2. Wow, how exciting. I'd love to find stuff like that, but you don't really in Australia.
