Fabulous collection

Last weekend I purchased a vintage clothing lot ('lot' being a collection of items sold as a package deal)... containig approximately 120 pieces of 1930s'-1960s' clothes!! I was looking for some good vintage mens wear (for styling) and stumbled upon this great lot (containing mens and womens wear.) I went to see the bunch last week, and after short consideration picked it up last saturday. I already gave away some items as gifts, kept a few pretty things myself and brought some pieces to the fleamarket last week.
There are dresses, cardigans, jackets, tuxedos, blouses, suits, trousers and coats in the lot. I was really thrilled to find some really good thirties and forties pieces. Unfortunately not all in my size, but I spoiled myself enough with other pretty things from the lot. Here is a little preview of what is now hanging in my clothing room., and to think that is only a small part of the entire lot.... (L)

I'm planning to use the items in this lot in a few different ways. Like I said, I needed mens wear for some upcomming styling jobs... and I also wanted to collect a few good jackets to dress friends and family for our wedding. Since I feel there is a lack of good 1930s-1940s vintage sellers in the Netherlands, I wanted to gather some good pieces myself to pass on to other fashionistas in the vintage scene and for potential sales (yes... I busy planning a vintage webshop!) And of course... finding some nice items for myself and my love was a nice extra haha.
A special thanks goes out to the lovely people
selling this gorgeous lot to me!
