Vintage Gloves Are Making A Come Back!

As fashion styles revolve and do fashion accessories, and vintage gloves are making a come back! Whether to wear to an opera opening...
to a friend's wedding...
or to a photo shoot... Some people like something historically special, as these post WWII black kid leather gloves from the U.S.A. zone of Occupied Germany...
I had been amazed when I first saw the stamp inside... gloves have returned to the fashion world...isn't it better to buy vintage? Vintage gloves are a wonderful accent to a special outfit, to make it stand out... Vintage Ladies Cream Hand Sewn Gloves Bead Trim Size 6 1/2
they come in so many color choices and fabrics... Vintage 1940s Ladies Long Navy Gloves MWT Size 6 1/2
and some have never been used. They are in mint condition...still with the original tags attached, as these two pairs of gorgeous vintage gloves! Vintage gloves, with a vintage hat and, don't get me started.... :O)

Luv2LuvAntiques 'The Vintage Linen Restorer' Is A Happy One Indeed!

I am a restorer of vintage and antiques, and I especially luv to restore the vintage printed tablecloths and tea towels of the 1930's to 1960's. It is especially gratifying to find others who appreciate vintage linens of the past, and really like using the lovingly used ones!
I found these two vintage towels at an estate sale, thrown willy-nilly, with a bunch of other linens on a long table. They had horrid stains, and most people would think they were destined for the 'rag bag', but not 'this' linen restorer! After hours of soaking, and suncrofting on the line outside, they had but a few very pale spots, and the lovely bright color of the Chicken Today towel caught the eye! The poor Carousel kitchen towel was so faded, but with the much needed TLC...the textured fabric just 'popped'! The lady who purchased them from my etsy shop, left feedback saying how much she loved the towels! :O)

Luv2LuvAntiques Will Help You Reminisce!

Luv2LuvAntiques is truly a 'vintage picker' with a passion...a passion for collecting! So, as I collect 'new' old things...I must part with some of the 'old'! Two of my favorites may take you back to the 1950's, and help you reminisce...or for the younger set, help you discover the fabulous '50's!

Vintage 1950s 45 Record Case to help you remember the start of Rock 'n Roll!

Those lazy days of the beach!

Luv2LuvAntiques The Finder of Lost Vintage?

I've had yet another heartwarming experience to share with you! A lady contacted me by phone, about this lovely Vintage Schumann Dresden Flowers_Empress_Demitasse Teacup and Saucer, that she had purchased from my website. She had been searching for it for a long time. Her cousin had found it on my website, as she had been enlisted in the hunt! Apparently the vintage teacup and saucer that arrived at her home today, will take the place of the one, that has a chip on the cup, and a lovingly glued together saucer. She has the teapot, creamer, and sugar, to go with the original teacup and saucer, that had been a wedding gift over 36 years ago! This gives her the chance to use her tea set again! Apparently the original is sitting on display in her china cabinet...too broken to use, but too loved to part with! :O)
