Sarah of Sarah's Vintage Fashions
Sarah is from is from North Central California. She has been a Sixth Grade Public School Teacher for the past 27 years. About 12 years ago she became fascinated with vintage fashions. This fascination became a passion and she now has in her collection thousands of vintage clothing items from the 20s through the 60s.
In her spare time (when..I don't know), she sells on eBay under SarahsVintage and she hopes to have a website up and running soon.
Here is an item she is offering this week - a 1950’s Sky Blue Chantilly Lace Over Slipper Satin Dinner Dress and in a size Large, too!
Next is Kim from Serene Jane and thegirlcanthelpit.co.uk
Kim is a UK VFG member. She says..."..My love of vintage (and Elvis) began many years ago when as a young girl I dressed in my Mum's old crinolines and pretended to be a bride. By my teens I insisted on making my school uniforms to old 50's patterns and was pretty much seen as " a little odd"! This did not worry my at all as I just adored the era and let's face it, as this was the time of Punk and New Romantics, I was actually pretty normal! I adore the glamour of the great Hollywood years of the 1940's through to the early 1960's."
In 2007 she opened a shop space with a friend who restores furniture and she started her website, thegirlcanthelpit.co.uk.
She also sells on ebay and here is an item from her store...
