First shop update of 2015 and Etsy vacation news!

1940s Cornflower Blooms crepe day dress

  All these vintage lovelies are now available in the shop! I'm so pleased to be able to offer these older pieces, especially the '40s dresses. They are both so beautiful in person!

1940s Scotch Buttons plaid skirt

If anything takes your fancy, be sure to act fast as the shop will be closing on Wednesday (7th January) at 2pm GMT until the beginning of February while I take a trip back to the West Coast (as I said in my last post, the to-ing and fro-ing isn't over just yet!!). I'm looking forward to sharing my American vintage hunts here soon!

Happy 2015!

Hope you've been enjoying a lovely festive time over the past few weeks! Last January, I shared some of my favourite sales of 2013 and I've just put together a little round-up of my 2014 faves below. It's been lots of fun sending these pieces out into the world! 

January: 1970s Indian hand-printed dress / February: 1990s denim dress / March: 1970s patchwork suede bag

April: 1980s Regina Kravitz Dress / May: Vintage Levi's jeans / June: 1960s maxi dress by Dorothy Perkins
July: 1970s Indian hand-printed wrap skirt / August: 1960s evening gown by Carnegie of London / September: 1970s day dress by Richard Stump
October: 1980s midnight blue clutch / November: 1930s velvet embroidered purse / December: 1960s Victoriana dress
I hope to make 2015 the year where I concentrate a little more on Elly Maggy Vintage again after  the various logistical upheavals of the past 12 months (and the 12 months before that too!!). There is a little more to-ing and fro-ing planned for the first few months of the year but then I hope to be listing lots and lots of lovely vintage for you and blogging more frequently! Over the past year, this blog has tended to be a place where I post shop updates but I'm wondering about changing that a little bit. What kind of posts would you like to see on this ol' blog? Don't be shy, all suggestions welcome!! I'll also be hunting for more vintage soon (although I have plenty waiting to be listed too!) - if there are items / eras that you love more than others, let me know! Thanks for reading and Happy New Year!
