It was nice, some stuff were pretty cool

And i had an ENORMOUS crush on this pink vest ! i turned around it, i tried it, i asked for the price…but there were a lot of stains on it 😦 so i left it…

and since then i ‘ve been trying to convice myself that it was a good thing… it was…it was… was it?

But there is one thing:  i was a little disapointed while walking around all those cute stands…

why on earth are vintage clothes so freaking expensive?

I mean, if someone already wore the stuff, i really don’t wanna buy if for double the price it would cost me in the store…

am i crazy here?

  1. No, I don’t think you’re cray, but then again I think maybe I am. 30 years ago or so I was in the middle of a multi-year spree of buying women’s clothes. I loved trying them on on the stores. Many many years later, a little at a time I would up giving away much vintage clothing to charity, and did sell a few items dirt cheap to a woman from a vintage second hand shoppe. Now, when I see the prices some vintage clothes fetch I’m bewildered as well. The colours of the vintage dress in the photograph above in your post are beautiful, and what a nice list of links to the stores that were at the vintage fair. No, I don’t think you should have gotten the vest with the stain. it’s a shame, but oh well. I will have to decide what to do with what vintage womens clothes I have that are too small for me, including the blouses which I only wore in the photos I posed for on my websites. I wonder if I should just do contest giveaways of some sort.

  2. Oh, the pink vest looks totally adorable! I love how it has some oriental feel to it, too bad about the stains really!


  3. Travaillant dans le marketing, le concept de “vendre quelque chose de vieux au prix du neuf” est un de mes favoris (avec “vendre quelque chose qui à la base était gratuit”).

    mais c’est peut-être aussi parce que sur le cercle de la vie je suis à l’opposé de “mode” donc ce facteur m’échappe quant à la rationalité d’un achat.

    mais j’y travaille.
    ma soeur m’a montré ça :
    et j’aime beaucoup.
