With hosting two WWII dances at the Commemorative Air Force Minnesota Wing, my collections began to grow even more. In addition to Civilian clothing, I started collecting vintage Military items with my husband. I'm finding there are quite a lot of people interested in dressing up for the dances...so I decided to start my own Etsy site for vintage stuff. I only just began posting things...so you will find purses, jewelry, records and such. You can expect to find coats, dresses, and more very soon. Eventually, I will be creating a site for people to rent items specifically for dances and other functions. My thought is that while many people may attend these "Retro" bashes, they may not want to invest in the piece. So, why not rent it for the night just like you would a tux or dress for a formal engagement!
Stayed tuned for that...I'm thinking that is a great Winter project to get going. In the mean time, check out the Etsy site called Amelia's Vintage Closet. The site is named after our little kitten who is enamored with all of the sparkly things hanging in my closet!
