Hi everyone. I got into vintage recently when I went to a vintage shop to browse. Saw a lovely skirt that was unique that I really liked and returned a week later when the store sent me a virtual coupon for 40% off. I was lucky they still had it and purchased it. I joined their reward program and received another coupon so I had to return. This time it was BOGO and I bought a beaded blouse and looked around and left with a vintage handbag. When I got home, I opened the purse to get who the designer was and found John Romain stamped with 7-71. That’s when I fell in love with vintage and started hitting the thrift shops and garage sales. I’ve found some things that are vintage and trying to date them and found some duds as well that are vintage inspired. Now I really wish I had saved my mom’s clothes and handbags. I’ve posted a few pics below. The owner of the vintage shop told me the skirt was made in Europe in the 30s handmade. There are no tags or care instructions. Stitching is beautiful and that’s what sold me in the purse.
