Shop Vacation

A wee holiday notice! Elly Maggy Vintage will be on an early summer vacation from Monday 3pm GMT until 12th July. So, any final orders should be placed tomorrow / Monday morning to ensure shipping and I'll be back in July with some extra special listings and the third part of my summer collection update... featuring swimsuits for summertime beach pyramids with friends! Yippee!

Shop Update Part 2 - Summer Separates!

1940s Country Garden cotton skirt
 In addition to the lovely summertime frocks arriving in the shop this week, I have put together a mini collection of summer separates and accessories in a variety of styles and sizes, spanning the 1940s to the 1970s. 

1970s embroidered tunic
1970s Californian Poppies wrap skirt
1950s Bull and Roses novelty print skirt by Pam Foster - SOLD
1950s raffia clutch
 I think my absolute favourite of the bunch is the [now sold!] 1950s circle skirt by Pam Foster, who also designed clothing for the 1962 Seattle World Fair. The print features white bulls running at bright pink matador capes and brilliant big, bold roses. The skirt was one of several finds brought back from my last trip to the U.S., which are slowly but surely making their way into the shop. There are more to come in future updates. And Part 3 of my summer update is coming soon, after a wee shop vacation (details coming in the next post...)!

Shop update - Summer Dress Collection!

1950s brown batik print cotton dress - SOLD
  Hello! It's been a wee while since I posted here but I'm stopping by to let you know that Elly Maggy Vintage is back with a special summer dress collection... These dresses have all been chosen for wearing on long, warm days out in the sunshine. The first was snapped up very quickly but the others are currently available in the shop - just click on the links for all the details!

1950s cotton candy pink dress by Lucinda of California
1960s paisley print shirt dress
1950s navy and orange print day dress
 With the weather warming up this week (at least momentarily!), I've started to gather together lots of cool, airy pieces and these dresses make up the first of three planned summer shop updates. I'm already working on the second, which features a selection of cheery cotton separates. I'll be posting details here as soon as the new listings are up so keep an eye on this ol' space.
