$ 35.0050s black lace bed jacket, lined in the softest blush pink nylon. It has the sweetest little black satin rosette detail at the bust, and a flirty frill of lace ruffle all around the bottom hem. Would actually be great as a top over a tank or sleek top. Snaps shut, v back and front. Larger size! Had a label but its been cut out, sadly.

Full skirt, mid length, spaghetti straps that tie together on the shoulder, metal zipper down the back. This is the PRETTIEST dress and perfect for just about any event. Small to extra small size range. This dress HAD a label, but someone at some point in time cut it out, so your guess is as good as mine as to who designed it. They had talent though!
$ 36.00Stunning sequined sweater in a bigger size. Ivory wool, covered in sequins, with a couple of cutwork areas embroidered in teal blue. Just perfect for Holiday parties! 100% wool but the not very itchy kind and..tah dah!...its fully lined so its easy to wear. This would look so cute with some skinny jeans and tall boots or heels.

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.
$ 24.00I love the lavender-ey pink color of this pretty party dress. Its circa 1950s or early 60s. Would have had a little bolero jacket or top over the bodice and the hooks for that are still there. Its too small for my dress form by a bit so it's pinned in back but the zipper works great. This is an opaque layer of acetate or rayon with a sheer chiffon that feels like a poly maybe over the top. Full skirt but not a full circle, would be great with a crinoline, which I have not shown it with here. Sleeveless, wide waistband with a pellon lining to help it hold its shape. Zipper in the back. No label. Please see condition below as it has some issues. Small size, I'd say. Or extra small.

$ 210.00If you know vintage designers you'll know why this dress is priced as it is regardless of its issues. This is a Ceil Chapman, designer to Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor and Deborah Kerr among many many others. This is from the 1950s. Beautiful goldish satin taffeta base covered in ivory tulle and utterly dripping in faux pearl beads and sequins with rhinestone centers. Its stunning. There's just no other word for it. There is a layer of tulle along the inside bottom hem, about the last ten inches, to give the hem some shape and movement. There is a metal zipper on the side. Two labels. One reads Ceil Chapman of course. That's on the side. The one behind the neck reads Hollywood, Wilkes Barre, PA. Please read condition below as this ha some issues.
$ 15.00Fancy gold damask shirtwaist style dress circa 1950s. Five covered buttons up the front and a metal zipper. Pretty tie bow at the neck. Long sleeves with three buttons at the cuffs. The fabric feels like it could have some silk in it but I don't think it's 100% silk. Bodice is lined. No label, probably in the medium size range.
$ 28.00Fantastic vintage 50 wiggle dress in black crepe. Short sleeves, metal zipper in back, and a cute rolled waist with two little bows in front. No Label. This dress is still very cute but does have issues, thus being in my scratch and dent section. Please see below.

Please see below.

Sleeveless, higher scooped neck and slightly lower back. Buttons up the back. There is a zipper up the back on the lining and then little buttons up the back on the chiffon. In the photo the zipper on the lining is undone. No label. Small to medium I'd say. Please see condition below.
Good vintage condition. The satin layer is actually in great condition, the only thing I've been able to spot on that is a faint watermark on the skirt and some minor color fade and a small amount ( maybe an inch long) of disintegration in the armpits. One could open up those armpits and make them a little bigger, cutting out the damaged bit completely. The chiffon is another story unfortunately. Its falling apart in several places, and the rest has faded areas. I think I'd just remove it entirely and maybe recycle the good parts of it for something else. The satin in this would make a lovely dress on its own. Also, the zipper on this dress needs to be repaired. Priced accordingly and why its in my Scratch and Dent section and as is.
Measurements when lying flat. Doubled at bust and waist.
Armpit to armpit across bust: 35"

$ 14.00Orange Sherbet Colored gabardine jacket. Swing shape. 3/4 sleeves, pearlized oversize buttons and two pockets. Would make a great maternity jacket, though I' not aware that this was its initial intended use. Would also be cute over skinny jeans and boots. label reads: Aquarius MFG California.
$ 20.00Cute sunny yellow mod dress from the 60s. 3/4 length chiffon sleeves, and starburst beads scattered across the front. Metal zipper up the back. Sheath shape. I think this is a heavier cotton or cotton blend.
$ 65.00Beautiful white cotton Victorian/Edwardian petticoat. Loose Crochet scalloped edge hem with pintuck ruffles in a two layers. Drawstring waist so its really a flexible, comfortable fit. Would make a great boho skirt
$ 96.00Utterly lovely black mourning skirt from the early 1900s, possibly late 1800s. Fine mesh fabric, unlined. Perfect pintuck pleats all round the waist and each one is tacked down to just below the hips so it really holds its shape. The waistband is reinforced inside with a wide ivory grosgrain band. Heavy duty hook and eye closures which are probably meant to go up the back due too the way the pleats come together below it, but I've shown it here at the side. Small size I'd say.
$ 30.00Beautiful baby dress in white cotton circa early 1900s. French seams, two real shell buttons in the back. High empire waist, short cap sleeves made of fluttery handkerchief edged swiss dot trim. There are rows of pintucking all round the bottom of the skirt and then gorgeous cutwork below that. Delicate lace at the neck. Just beautiful!
$ 219.00This is a stunning dress from the 1920s, possibly early 30s in the softest, most delicious, black silk velvet. It is tooo small for my dress forms so I pinned her to show her shape. Look at that gorgeous antiqued gold tone beading round the neckline! There is a ruched ribbon of black velvet going down the bib of the bodice which is echoed at the sleeve cuffs. The cuffs have hook and eye closures. There is a slight drop waist with an asymmetrical waist seam for a bohemian, gypsy feel. There is no opening in this dress ( no zipper or snaps or anything, it merely pulls over the head) so do be sure you have room to get into it, per the measurements. There is the tiniest of labels at the back that reads: Cash's, and then a scattering of small labels with numbers on them, various sizes I suppose. Extra small to small I'd say.
$ 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.

Medium size, I'd say. No label.
$ 60.00Beautiful silk blush colored 1920s slip. Pretty lace trim across the top. Beautiful blush pink, silk straps, chevron cut to the bottom hem. No label. Probably a medium size. This may be a silk blend, I'm not sure. Its gorgeous and lovely against the skin. Slight A shape in cut and meant to be an easy fit.
$ 99.00Absolutely wonderful and charming 1920s day dress. White rayon top with a deep V neck ( someone added a snap at some point for modesty to hold this closed) bordered in a white and blackish-green trim. There's a line of horizontal pintucking all round the bottom of the bodice. The skirt is a black crepe and just has wonderful pleating and pintucking both front and back. There's so much to love about this dress. Sleeveless, dropwaist, easy comfortable fit, and so so cute! Label reads: None. About a medium to large. Please see condition as this beauty does have some issues.
$ 120.00Beautiful dupioni silk 1920s slip. Deep peach color with lovely ivory lace trim, French seams inside. I believe this is, in fact, French. This would have been worn under a flapper dress back in the day, but would make a great nightie now, or still perfect as a slip too, of course! Rare extra large size too!
$ 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.
$ 80.00Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. Tiered skirt, shoulder pads and that amazing neckline. There are two bows, one at either shoulder, and then lace over the shoulders and flutter lace cap sleeves ( see condition on these below).

$ 59.00Beautiful deep peach-ey pink Vintage Tap Pant Style Panty from the 1930s possibly 40s. French seams, buttons at the side, scalloped edge at the bottom hem with ivory piping.

$ 89.00Oh how I wish this fit me. Beautiful vintage black crepe dress from the late 30s, or early 1940s. I adore the body hugging fit and the slightly raised collar and cuffed sleeves. The sleeves are 3/4, and the skirt is a straight pencil style. Has a side metal zipper and there is a matching belt that is sewn on at either side. . Small to extra small, I'd say. No label.
$ 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.

Dozens of buttons up the back and a long train. The satin on this is super soft. Label reads, Dancing Mode.
$ 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.
$ 219.00Beyond beautiful black dress from the later 1940s, or early 1950s. Makes me think of a Black Swan. The most amazing bodice with a black velvet modesty panel across the bust and then black lace and velvet straps over the shoulders. The velvet carries all down the back to a bow at the waist and extra long ends hanging down the skirt. Just gorgeous! Almost a full circle skirt. Has metal zipper on the side. No label. A lovely larger size, and great for a taller girl too! Yay! It's just a hair too big for me or I'd have kept this one for sure.
$ 149.00Beautiful black rayon dress from the later 1940s, or early 1950s. Full circle skirt. Slightly blouse-y bodice with a neckline that's sewn in such a way as to make it look somewhat twisted.

Simple clean lines with no front closure. Fully lined in black satin. Label reads: Bergdorf Goodman Fifth Avenue at 58th Street. Small to smaller medium I'd say.
$ 219.00Beyond beautiful black dress from the later 1940s, or early 1950s. I wish wish, wish I had a dress form small enough for this so you could get the real feel for it, but it's too small so I've had to pin it. Hopefully that will be enough. Its utterly divine. The most amazing bullet shape bodice just full of gorgeous beading all round the bust front and back and then soft black tulle over the shoulders. Fantastic gather at the hip on one side and then this fall of liquid black silk satin skirt which has a small rounded cornered slit on one side. Has metal zipper on the side, but curiously on the right, not the left as usual, and yes, I've made sure which side is front and back. No label, probably homemade though very, very well by an excellent seamstress, but that may explain the zipper.
$ 199.00This is exquisite! Delicious black wool Mexican full skirt circa late 40s or 50s. Looks like a full circle from that hip seam down. Look at that multi color floral embroidery in Day of the Dead colors! I've shown it with an added crinoline that's not included to really display that embroidery, but its equally gorgeous without it. Unlined, and I believe this is felted wool. Hook and eyes at the side waist and a metal zipper. No label. Small size. Gosh I wish it fit me!
$ 40.00Pretty pale pink 1940s or 50s full slip in taffeta. Quite a full skirt. Snaps on the side, straps are not adjustable. Would make a sweet nightgown as well as a slip or slip dress. No label. I'd say its about a large-ish medium
$ 46.00This is such a cute dress. Pink with white trim at sleeve cuffs and neckline and at the top of the hip pockets. Cute little white stitching is a nice touch too. This is from the later 40s or early 50s. Has a side metal zipper, and a snap at the front of the bodice where a modesty panel was added to give it a semi sailor look. Its linen, I believe, but doesn't wrinkle that much so probably a blend with something else. Label reads: None. A larger size too!
$ 129.00This stunner is a 1940s or 50s prom or party dress that looks like it could have been ( but wasn't) a ballerina's dress for Swan Lake. It was certainly inspired by it! Bodice is boned, and is strapless, and is covered in loosely gathered white tulle. Then those "wings" across the bust! To die. Beautifully studded with rhinestones or diamantes. Metal zipper on the side. I've shown this with a crinoline that's a bit short for it as I don't have a full length one, but imagine it with a full length! So lovely. Dress is white acetate with two layers of white tulle over it. Label reads: None. Small size, I'd say.
$ 75.00Beautiful vintage black ribbon dress circa late 1940s or early 1950s. Wiggle style with criss cross bands of narrow ribbon. Beautifully detailed neckline.
