An Avalanche of Vintage purses, Clothes, Shoes Finds in Nashville Tennessee

Vintage purse needle point and more

I just discovered years of vintage dresses, skirts, blouses, sweaters, shoes, hats and much more. Word of mouth got to their family members that I would be interested in buying some of the vintage clothing from not one but three sisters each with a very different sense of style. For the record the ladies did not believe on throwing anything away. While riffling through the mountainous terrain of cloth meet threads, buttons and zippers I found pieces right in line with spring, fall and summer’s hottest trends from the ‘30s, ‘40s, ‘50s, ‘60s, ‘70s, ‘80s, ‘90s and I could only describe the clothes as an avalanche of wearable.

As an Etsy-obsessed as I am, I will be sharing some these beautiful finds once they are washed, soaked and ironed and at times steam cleaned before they will go on Etsy. So wish me luck!


And yes there’s more……………

WOW I'm so jealous, I can't imagine trying to choose what to buy amongst all that bounty. I especially love those embroidered/tapestry purses, let me know if you decide to sell the one on the far right (oval shaped).

@ Foxy J. I try to buy shoes in excellent or near mint condition, so ussualy just a quick wipe down with leather cleaner or lint remover will do. Hope that helps!

Oh by the way, all the shoes came with their original boxes and were stored in a cedar closet! :)
