Joanne is truly a rare find, here she is modeling the green goddess dress by Mollie Parnes. 
Anyone in the vintage clothing business knows how hard it is these days to find good quality clothing from the 20's and 30's.  The stuff is simply drying up.
 Oh how I miss the days when I could go to Value Village and come home with a few bag loads of vintage treasures. The things I used to find were astonishing. Honestly, that's how I got hooked.
 Finding fabulous vintage clothing is a lot more complicated these days. Lucky for me, having a shop means people can bring the stuff to you.
 I am thrilled to be consigning a collection of items from a local Portland woman that has been collecting vintage clothing since the 70's.  She has shared with me her lovely collection of vintage shoes and gowns from the 20's and 30's. I will be posting more items later this week.
