$ 39.00Lovely black silk velvet dress from the 30s. They just don't make velvet like this anymore. Its so soft and fine. This is a very simple cut, below the knee, V neck with matching velvet buttons, and some smocking at the shoulders and a bit below the bust. long sleeves that snap at the cuff. Snaps at the side, loops for a belt but no belt anymore alas. Smaller size I'd say. No label. Please see condition below as this dress has some issues.
$ 38.00This is one of those pieces I couldn't leave behind no matter the damage. This was stunning in its day and is still amazing. It was too small for my dress form so I have displayed it pinned to the dress form. Pale lemoney yellow organza or organdy with a white print of bows and flowers, semi sheer full length party dress from the 30s or possibly 40s. Over a solid opaque yellow acetate slip. Short puff sleeves, fitted bodice with a gather at the décolleté, deep scoop back with decorative fabeic covered buttons up it, and then a long flowy skirt. Metal zipper on the side of both dress and slip. No label. This is a great deal for someone who may want to upcycle pieces of it, or likes a shabby look, or has better seamstress skills than I do. Also good for a costume or as a pattern or study. Please read condition below.
$ 25.00Beautiful white cotton girls dress--or possibly a chemise top for a slightly older child. This would most likley have been the under slip beneath a christening or baptism dress. Tank style with one button holding a shoulder together to make it easier to get on a little one. Darling little art deco-ey lace trim at the bottom of the skirt and then again a few inches up. There is an interesting gather at the back, which I believe is not original to the dress. I suspect it was added at some later point to make the dress fit some little girl a bit better. I've left it but its a matter of removing a few easy stiches to take it back out, which would really help it fit that older child I spoke of.
$ 30.00Beautiful white cotton girls smock or over dress. This would most likley have been worn over a slip underneath. Longer sleeves with beautiful scalloped cuffs. Pintucking and cutwork lace at the collar then that's trimmed in the same scalloped trim as the cuffs. Empire waist, very high. Two tiny buttons at the back of the neck then its open all down the back. The bottom hem is pintucked all the way round in several rows. Its just gorgeous. I'd say this is for a slightly older baby, but do please see the measurements as child sizing is not my forte.
$ 86.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. This dress has an amazing bodice in front as it has interesting pleats from the shoulders towards the collarbone and soft dolman short sleeves that give it a flutter look without the flutter sleeves. But what makes this dress extra cool is the bodice in back. That gorgeous box pleat with the keyhole peekaboo neckline above all topped off with two pearlized round buttons! How perfect with a gorgeous updo! And don't miss the darling pleats on the skirt in back too. Has a side metal zipper and there are thread loops for a belt but no belt. Small to medium size, I'd say.

$ 44.00Softest rick black silk velvet skirt circa late 20s or 30s. Wonderful slits up both sides that were sewn kind of oddly ( and I can't tell if it was intentional or not actually) to give the bottom hem a slightly asymmetrical look and give some fun shape and movement when you walk. Grosgrain ribbon inside the waist band. Two hook and eye closures at the waist on the side followed by three snaps underneath down the hip. No label, most certainly homemade. Small size.
$ 89.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. Take a look at that divine bodice design with the mesh panel in the décolletage, the swooping "upside down" collar and the fabric covered buttons. There is a nude nylon panel behind that mesh for modesty as well, by the way and an elastic band that one can bring up over the back of the neck to help the front hold it's shape. The sleeves are 3/4, it is slightly drop waisted and the skirt is a straight pencil style with a wonderful additional panel down the front that swings out when one walks. Has a side metal zipper and there are thread loops for a belt but no belt. Small to medium size, I'd say. Label says " International Original, New York".

$ 72.00This is a darling floral print cotton dress from the 1930s. Short sleeves with just a bit of pouf at the shoulder. Pleating at the skirt at the waist. Side snap and one hook and eye. Fun watercolor floral print of blues and yellows and browns on a light background. Mediumish size. No label.
$ 18.00This is a gorgeous set of salt and pepper shakers from what I suspect is sometime in the 1920s or possibly 30s based on their having screw caps. They may be older even, they look it. They are marked with 2311 on the bottom, which research has informed me means silver plate on copper. There is also another makers mark, which I find impossible to make out. Research keeps pointing to the 2311 being mostly FB Rogers, but I could swear these marks start with a W and then an H or B. So your guess is as good as mine. Either way, these are really sweet, with each panel on the sides having a Dutch scene, like a windmill, etc...As mentioned the lids screw off, there are no corks or bottom openings. They stands about 2" tall and are about 1.25" at the widest.
