West Coast Bound

Things have been a lot slower in the shop than I hoped over the past month. I've been shipping orders but, due to work and personal reasons, there has been no time for listings since the start of the year. I hope this is set to change very soon as I have some really great pieces to share - a couple more 50s dresses from the stash I have been adding to the shop (take a look at the first three here, here and here), some lovely Liberty print and various other goodies. But, before I get back to regular listing, I am returning to the West Coast of America for two weeks! It feels like such a long time since I was last there in October...
I have decided to shut up shop while I'm away as it's a long time to delay shipping and I'm not sure how often I'll be online to answer messages. Elly Maggy Vintage will close tomorrow afternoon at 5 pm (GMT) and will re-open when I return on Sunday 16th February. Look out for new listings and a shop sale when I get back!

Happy New Year!

January: 90s-does-60s denim dress / February: 80s floral leggings / March: 90s grey tunic dress

 Happy New Year from Elly Maggy Vintage! I took a break from the shop over the Christmas holiday but I'll be ready to list new items over the next week or so. There are also a couple of shop announcements coming this month so I'll be posting details here. 

It's been great selling vintage over the past year and, although things have been pretty hectic with a changing work schedule and some time spent away, it's been very rewarding to hear from customers enjoying their new items of clothing. Here's a little round up of some of my favourite items which I shipped out over the course of 2013. I'm looking forward to finding more pieces in 2014!

May: 90s red rucksack / June: 90s embroidered tie blouse / July: 80s-does-20s gingham dress

August: 60s Oaxacan Mexican dress / September: 70s Jaeger maxi skirt / October: 70s chestnut brown knit

November: Chinese crochet knit top / December: Mid-century leather gloves & 60s Welsh tapestry coat
