Here's the only thing I picked up from that Farm auction I mentioned the other weekend. It all came in a tiny suitcase. The vintage clothing at this auction, as I stated before, was nothing outstanding. Dusty everyday items from a working class farm family. Nothing mind blowing that was worth the oodles of money people were spending on them. I know that vintage clothes are getting harder to find, but still in my opinion, a ratty old black 40's basic crepe dress is not worth over $40 if that. This post is not meant to be a rant about vintage clothing prices, or about people whom have no idea about vintage clothing condition and prices. I won't bore you with my thoughts on that subject! This is a post about what I found in the suitcase!
1940's Suit, jacket/skirt
1950's Suit, jacket/skirt
4 pair of 1950's shorts
2 pair of 1950's cigarette pants
2 funky dresses from 1960's
2 1950's cashmere sweaters
1 Petticoat slip
4 1950's Summer blouses
1 pair of PJ's from 1940's
Miscellaneous belts and stockings
Plus I got the suitcase but it's missing the handle.
Conditions of clothing range from poor to excellent condition. Most are in good condition.
So, here's my question to all the vintage clothing lovers out there, how much would you have paid for this tiny suitcase full of vintage clothing????
