Anywho, in an attempt to post some me-made pictures, here are some recent finds. The brooches are all from a vintage fair that happens every Sunday in Boston, and the shoes/galoshes are all from different places.
As you can see, I have several pairs of vintage slippers and vintage galoshes - but no regular vintage heels (besides the first shown, which are a wee bit tight and fragile)! And this is not for a lack of trying. I'm starting to wonder if all the size 8 foot-ed women of the 30s and 40s only saved their non-everyday shoes.
Hope you are all enjoying the start to your weekend!
|A gramophone. I've gotten a lot of wear out of this one so far.|
|A little poodle!|
|I just love this one! The best detail is that the dog's eyes actually roll around when you move, they're those bobble eye sorts you can get at craft stores!|
|A grape vine (the purple of the beads have faded). I don't know if this is very vintage, but I still like it. The grapes swing around when you move.|
|I just got these galoshes in the mail a few days ago from Junque Gypsy on Etsy! They're deadstock from a department store that closed in the 40s.|
|Also not exactly new, but I brought these with me to Boston. They were my first pair of galoshes, and they started my galoshes obsession! From Tiddley Wink Vintage on Etsy.|
|My second pair of Daniel Green slippers, oh how I love them! I got these a few weeks ago at Bobby From Boston. My other pair is at home in Atlanta.|
