Starting Out in Vintage Fashions!

Well I am finally taking the plunge. Been wanting to do it for a long time and that is to sell vintage clothing. I opened a Ruby Plaza Shop and have been adding vintage clothes for the past few months, been a little slow at it as I am finding time to be a problem.

I love vintage clothes whether from the 1700's to the 1900's. I find then romantic, enchanting, lovely and just cute! My growing up years were when I reached 17, so I can say the clothes of the 70's to the 80's were when I appreciated fashion. The 50's and early 60's, my mom dressed me, and not bad at all, she was fashionable and dressed my sister and I on a very tight budget with a lot of hand-me-downs which she altered and made to fit.

I have never lost that concept since today I buy vintage clothing at the thrift stores, auctions and wherever I can find them. I love wearing them and now I love to sell to those who have a desire for vintage clothes.

Since I am a beginner there have been challenges to purchase, many mistakes and probably will be more. I will share some of the clothing I started with, they are cute, different and very wearable!

You can find some of these pictured at my Ruby Plaza Shop here!
