    Hello all,

    I joined last week, and have been all over the boards, and realise I didn't properly introduce myself.

    I'm Ruth and am in London, England. I'm a vintage fanatic, have been wearing it for awhile. I started in the Victorian era - the dress that really started me off was a 1890s bustled walking suit - and moved forward from there (missing out the twenties - I just don't have the figure for a flapper). As well as Victoriana, I love the forties and fifties.

    Now my wardrobes are bursting, and I've started selling some of my own collection, but I can't resist buying more even when it doesn't fit me, so have recently made the decision to become have a go at trading - I think this is probably a familiar story to you all!

    So I'm so very glad to have found the fantastic VFG, it's great to know there are other people as obsessed as me! What a wealth of knowledge there is here, and I hope to become a good contributor.

    Best wishes,

  2. Welcome Ruth~

    You're singing my song - I, too, gradually acquired a few lovely pieces, kept picking up lovely things - my size or not, because I couldn't walk away from them, and now, here we are!

    With all of the knowledge, resources and shared love of vintage here it's my favorite place~

    Welcome Ruth -

    I lived in London in the early 70's and that's where I really got the vintage bug. I was right off King's Rd., so while others were doing their Carnaby St. thing, I was happy in 40's dresses, which were fairly easy to find back in the day.
