    Hi everyone, what an amazing collection of people and clothes! Thanks for hours of enjoyment here. I was born in England, but currently live in Spain, and my love of fashion is thanks to my mum :) She was in her late teens, twenties during the WW1, so she dated American soldiers who were posted in England, and jived at the 'Palais' with them, they gave her silk stockings and parachute silk, and she made blouses and dresses out it, she drew a pencil line up the back of her legs, to make out her stockings were seamed, and all her hand sewn suits were Dior inspired, with hats and gloves of course. What a glamorous era. So just thinking 'vintage' makes me happy.

    Caroline, what a great lot of memories! I know what you mean about 'vintage'—just the word gives me the chills.

    Hi,
    I've been buying vintage clothing for years ,mostly to wear for myself but in the past 5 yrs I've been buying some to resell as well .
    Mostly vintage denim and leather but also some vintage sports jersey's and jackets . I have also been buying antiques and collectibles for years and started that as a teen working with my parents that were into that as well . I've found some good information on this site that have easily identifiable tags on clothing but the tags on clothing or markings on antiques that most people can't identify seem more interesting and takes a bit more time .Thanks to the people that have contributed to this site for the world to see and learn from .

    Annette here, new to the forum! I love vintage fashion because of the fabrics the structure and the stitching. I love to follow vintage patterns. Vintage sewing and tailoring instructions too. It's also fun to learn new tricks of the trade.

    Hi all !

    I'm Eileen, living in the US but originally from Ireland. I happened upon my first pair of Ferragamo heels recently by chance; they are too tiny to ever fit my size 11 however I couldn't leave them behind !
