New Purchases!!!!

I love to go to all vintage clothes shoppes when I visit a big city but when I don't travel it's hard to find vintage clothes around my small village. It's rare to find 40's-50's clothes in Flea Markets in Europe but I can easy find accessories like costume jewelery, hats, umbrellas, gloves, fur collars, bags.
So when I'm home my favorite shoppes are and!!!!

Here are my 2 last purchases from Ebay and Etsy newly arrived from the USA...

You can see this amazing 40's hat made of wool with beautiful silk and velvet roses!!! I purchased this beauty from my friend Niki. A really nice girl from Chicago, I met her a year ago during my last trip in the USA...

We spent a nice day together along Chicago's streets...

and we visited the best vintage shoppes in town!!!!

I bought this hat from her Etsy shop BombshellShocked!!!
Please visit her shop often, she's a professional and friendly seller who loves and wears vintage. You can trust her on the condition, the era and the measurements of her clothes!!!

My second purchase is this 50's purse from Ebay just arrived in time for Autumn!!! I really love straw purses, this one is made in Occupied Japan. Fit perfectly with my new hat!

The suit is also quite a new purchase, I bought it in Bruxelles this summer, it's made in USA and never worn. I wear it for the first time for these pictures.

Are you Ebay and Etsy addict like me? Which one do you prefer?


  1. Wow, I love your purse!!!
    Oh, and yes, I´m an addict,too. I like them both, from time to time you can find some nice pieces here in Germany too, but ebay & etsy offer so many beautiful things every day :-)

  2. Yeah! I'm so glad it arrived safely! It looks beautiful on you.

  3. That hat is amazing! Oh wow. And the purse is really lovely, too. :D

  4. Thanks for all these compliments!!!
    Susan, I don't speak really well german altough I live at 15 minutes from German border. Where are you from? I love flea markets in Germany and would like to go to Berlin in a near future.

  5. I will do a vintage shopping trip to Berlin soon :-) I´m from Nordrhein Westfalen, so the nearest neighbouring countries are Belgium and the Netherlands...I´d like to visit Belgium too, but first I will enjoy Berlin (again) ;-)

  6. You are sooo fabulous! That bag is amazing, you have a real eye for things!! lovely blog!

    Please check out our blog too if you have a minute :).

    Kisses P&C xx

  7. I like the bag, but the hat is simply gorgeous!

  8. Wow, I have just been looking at your blog - it is fantastic, formidable! I used to buy a lot from etsy (I prefer that much more to ebay which I don't use anymore). However, I had to pay EUR 80 then EUR 40 in douane (import duty) for my last two items delivered in France, so that has 'cured' my etsy addiction. As a result I am saving LOTS of money and my husband is very happy!
