I am a big fan vintage and second hand clothing but my hunting ground doesn’t usually extend beyond charity shops, vintage shops and very occasionally ebay. When I got an email the other day from Barnebys Auction House, I was really interested to see what they have to offer in terms of fashion, jewellery and other treasures. They have a whole category devoted to vintage fashion. I also love checking out antique paintings and art work.
If I am honest, I have never set foot in a real auction house, the prospect sounds a little scary. I have visions of me putting up my hand to scratch my face and ending up bidding a half a million pounds for something that I don’t even want!
Anyway looking at a website is so much safer. Here are a few of the items that I would love to bid on!
What do you think? would you every consider buying vintage fashion from an auction house?
With warmest wishes
