These baby shower cards are from a party held on August 14, 1962 in what was then a working middle class neighborhood of St. Louis, MO… I got lucky, the shower invitation was in the box! It was thrown at the mother’s home, by her mom.
“A Baby Shower is on the way, So please jot down the time and day.”
I found these early 1960s Baby Shower and New Baby greeting cards for a girl in with some early 1960s baby clothes. The previous owner swore she didn’t want the cards from her baby shower back… so I kept them and scanned them.
I really love the fonts, and the little illustrations and rhymes inside the cards are too cute!
I’ve had some fun taking pictures of this vintage ice skating dress, especially once I found a model who wanted to pretend to ice skate! Only the main picture here is retouched- this vintage dress is in amazing condition. As you can tell, this would make a great costume or pinup dress, too!
You’re buying a vintage 1960s ice skating/figure skating dress with matching original belt. It’s made of corduroy and zips with a metal zipper up the back.
The woman who gave this to me said that it was her sisters, who died in the late 1960s, and she thinks her sister wore this her senior year of highschool. Besides my models wearing it, it’s probably only been worn once or twice. It appears to be in excellent vintage condition – just some random loose threads and lint from being stored, but no holes or spots.
