A gathering of undergarments from the mid-century and thereabouts, each given a good detailed description. Bullet bras and lacy longlines, full-coverage panties, fluttery full slips, girdles, flowing nightgowns and robes, even some finds for the dudes in boxers and undershirts. This merchant also has an eye for insanely cute half-aprons.

Clothes and accessories rescued from the 18th century up through the mid 20th. Good for real-deal artifacts, which at the time of this writing include 20’s negligees, bustle pads, veiled mourning hats, 50’s needlepoint bags, boudoir slippers and high-buttoned boots, slick Deco Age formal suits, party dresses for the little ones, and crafters will find a section of old-world laces and buttons to play with.

Just what it says – a diverse harvest of yesteryear purses that cover wide ground in style and era. Sleek evening clutches, tooled leather shoulderbags, fifties boxy kissclaspers, pinuppy wicker beach baskets, flowery shopping totes, and at least one so-80’s gold leatherette hobo lurking around. There’s also a Not Yet Vintage designation for stuff that’s technically too young but still quite flauntable.

Vintage that specializes in high-end, drop-dead glamour, from the Victorian/Edwardian era up through the present day. Flapper shawls, clingy starlet gowns, New Look party dresses, glitzy coats, Pucci maxis, with a reworked section that harmonizes these disparate periods together into sweet new creations. The accessories page is full of unusual detours from all-retro styling, preferring a bold, modern look that veers between delicate and rugged: obi belts, body harnesses, rings flaunting chunks of sparkling rock, modern neck ruffs, and chain/fringe necklaces that are as stunning as they are gigantic.
