Very Old Children's Shoes

Early 40's Coat


Check out the embossed-looking leaf designs, the wavy lines the buttons create, and the pert little shape! So cute!

Civil War Era Girl's Dress




The crazy pattern on this has an almost early 60's op art feel, with the floating cubes, and then it also looks like coral.

Oh-So-Pretty Late 30's Garden Party Dress


This dress went for a lot. It's just such a pretty, wearable, flattering style. People always think of vintage as fussy, but it's not always the case.

40's Dancing Shoes


These sparkly, vampy platforms are so Abba/disco queen, but they're from the 1940's.

30's Drapey Blouse



Even simple garments were constructed so beautifully!

60's Spiderweb Dress


80's Jaws T-shirt

The image on the cover of Jaws used to terrify me sooo much as a child (huge bodies of water have always freaked me out.) I wanted this t-shirt! But it was kid-sized.
