My best vintage 2010

It's my plan to show you some of my favorite items sold this year...not all, but the items that first come to mind. There's plenty (*blush*). You know I love all wearable vintage clothing, but especially the teens and 20s...

...30s and 40s...

... and 50s and 60s.

As usual, the 40s weigh heavily among my favorites

I always love a classic

Lilli Ann
I'm partial to anything that brings a smile

Tyrolean tourist jacket
and I love party dresses, for all kinds of parties

Hardy Amies

I always love a great print (click on any photo for a closer view)

Parasols on a windy day

Hand-painted Mexican skirt


Spoof newspaper of the future



My perennial favorite, polka dots

Best yet, a Mid-century Modern print

I love to take a walk on the wild side


This year certain items have had special meaning for me

I found my first (and possibly last, given where I live!) Ossie Clark dress

In April came the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, and the 11th anniversary of denisebrain

These shoes ended up in an exhibition at the Heard Museum

In January his little bag from my own collection helped me raise money for Medecins Sans Frontieres for their work in Haiti

This ca. 1930 opera coat helped me raise money for the Save the Manatee Club in August

This Bonnie Cashin 3-piece outfit helped me raise money for Living Beyond Breast Cancer in October

...and this owl handbag helped me raise money for Conservation Northwest this month

This year, with the help of the best customers, I have been able to raise over $1500 for some great causes.

Thank you so much for your support, style, and all-out fabulousness!

Wishing you all the best of love, hope, health, peace and joy in 2011
