Pink vintage, and a request for your photos


In honor and memory of Mary Catherine Lamb, for the remainder of October I am designating 10% of the sale price on all pink items in my web store to Susan G. Komen For The Cure Foundation. By pink I mean anything with pink. (If you have any doubts, email me!) Also, check out similar offerings from other Vintage Fashion Guild Members.


I am putting together my November monthly theme (see some of my previous themes at the Denisebrain Theme-o-matic) and would like to include images of people who have bought vintage clothing from me, wearing their vintage finery. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet, but thinking about Thanksgiving, as takes place here in the US next month, I want to show my appreciation for all my great customers. Have anything I might use? Please let me know by emailing me at mwilds@qwest.net. Thank you very much for your help!

80s vintage black dresses

I've been exploring 80s fashion recently, and want to alert you to a couple of current items in my inventory. This stunning dress has less than a day left on eBay:

This one is new on eBay...I so love the sleeves, the cut, the back neckline...

A few 80s items previously loved and sold:

Pinch me, I'm loving the (best of the) 80s again!
