New to the Etsy shop – Beautiful brooches

I have this lovely batch of 1930s celluloid brooches coming to my Etsy store. The Navy ‘Buddy’ is 1940s – WW2 era and very rare to find intact and has already been sold. If you are interested in the black swirl or red manta email me at as those 2 are still to be listed.

Vecona Vintage – 1930s inspiration

Some of of the beautiful 1930s loungewear inspired items that Vecona Vintage carry in their range. I want them all!! The sailor pants are especially gorgeous. I wish more companies would start doing the ‘low rise’ cut in ladies trousers again. So much more stylish and comfortable. The ‘Cap Calloway’ cap is also a winner!
