    Game # 1 - The Vintage Fashion Price is Right

    This game will consist of vintage fashion ads with hidden prices. Each time a visitor guesses within 10% of the actual price we will consider that a win, their user name will then be added to the end of the title, and we will move on to another vintage fashion ad in a new thread.
    The one who gets the most wins by the end of our celebration will receive $10 credited to their PayPal account.

    How much was this 1950's Lilli Ann coat advertised for?

    We have a winner! Bonnie won this one right on the spot! Congrats Bonnie!

    Can you believe that this coat that we all know and love to this day was $145?

    This ad was from in the Evening Standard on the 17th of August 1954.

    We will now close this with Bonnie being our winner and go on to the next in a new thread. This one was pretty difficult to guess.

    Tiffany is our winner with $45. She did not hit it on the nose but was the first to come within 10%.

    Maggie did come closer to the actual price, $49.99 before midnight..lol, and PinkChandy hit it right on the nose at $50.

    The lady's jumpsuit was $45.

    We have a winner! Mary! She was the first to guess within 10% of the actual price! We will go on to round 4 within the next few minutes!

    We have a winner! Jean Marshall was very close and within 10% of the actual price! Congrats Jean! I cannot believe that coat was more than a Lilli Ann coat at that time. Beautiful coat though! I will be posting another soon. :)

    Well I be darned. I thought no one was going to guess. This one has to go without an official winner because not everyone got a 2nd try but Hollis would have won and still got the closest so while this does not count she unofficially won. Hallelujah Hollis! That was truly a closeout! Haha!

    We have a winner! Congrats to Tiffany! You were the first to come within 10% of the for sale price.

    PinkChandy wins. The actual price was $11.97! Congrats!

    IMG_8621.JPG

    StitchesandSnags was the closest but not within 10% so no cigar on this one. This gorgeous coat was $1.44.

    Just a cute dress like Sandy might wear in Grease.

    A lot of you were close some even closer than our winner but Nancylou was first to come within 10% so she wins! Congrats!

    IMG_8617.JPG
