    Hello VFG and a big thank you for letting me register with you!

    Looking around here, I'm becoming really excited about getting to know you all more and joining in with the theme. Only been here an hour or so and my head is buzzing already!

    I'm in the business of selling really great quality handmade vintage leather bags. Also been involved with 'internet stuff' for quite a few years so will be delighted to give any assistance that I can with other on-liners.

    Looking forward to what's coming! Thanks again
    Trevor

    Hi -
    I am a new to the forum but have been using the label resource on VFG extensively for my vintage clothing business. I have a brick and mortar store in Lambertville NJ as well as an etsy shop. Clothing has been my whole life - I've been sewing since I was 10, got a degree in Apparel Design and worked as a Technical Designer in the Philadelphia and New York garment industries. I have been wearing vintage for over 25 years and selling it for the past 6 years.

    Hi - newbie here! My name is Heather and my business is called FrockLobsta (any fans of the B52s?). I also LOVE Schiaparelli. Hence the name.

    I started working with women's vintage clothing and accessories but have moved into men's accessories. Ties, cravats, braces, shoes, tie pins, cufflinks, bow ties, scarves. I adore 1920s and 1950s men's neckties and cravats and I find it very hard to part with many of my items - but the bills need to be paid!

    Greetings all,
    I'm working with a vintage/historic collection on a college campus with items dating from the 1880s through the 1970s - it's a wonderful collection! I'm photographing, cataloging, and describing every item in the collection. Right now I'm working with the hats (over 300) in the collection. With the hats are the hair net/veils with decorations on them. I'm not sure what they're called or when they were worn - my guess is the 1950s? I've looked in a lot of reference books and on the web but I could use some suggestions.

    Hi, I'm Holly. I collect vintage neckties. I found VFG while researching makers tags on the ties and I've been haunting the site ever since. I started purchasing ties for a sewing project I had in mind...but never started! The idea was to cut up the ties to make other clothing items and purses but I just couldn't bring myself to destroy them. I fell I love with my "ugly" ties and started a page for them on Facebook.

    Thanks for adding me to forum. Eager to get reading!

    Hi! I'm new here and my name is Estrella! I'm a costume designer and I love vintage stuff and costume recreation! My favorite period is the 1940s.

    Hello. I have been given access to many old pieces of costume jewelry and clothing - I am aware they are worth some money, but need to learn how to determine how to identify what I have and then how much it could be worth. I think the word "vintage" is tacked on to things that are not, and that just makes this process harder to get through. So, I'm going to be learning all I can, and when I meet the requirements of a seller then I'll apply for membership. I do love this stuff, particularly jewelry, hats and purses.
