Treasure Chest

I bought this chest from my facebook garage sale group. It was advertised as having children's costumes, dance outfits and formal wear. The seller was basically selling the chest and the clothing was free. Although the clothing wasn't exactly what I thought it would be, I had fun digging through it and hopefully something will sell.

Dance Outfits:

The cheerleader outfit had too many issues, so that ended back up on the garage sale group. The other 3 I listed on Ebay. There were actually 2 of each outfit, a medium and a large. Right now, I am running auctions on the mediums.

You can check out my auctions here.

There were a couple of outfits and hats I had to redonate. Maybe someone can fix them but I do not have the time or the ability.

The best part of the chest was finding the vintage clothing. This was marked in a separate box as formals: wedding dress and capes. I didn't find the wedding dress or the capes and these were the only formal dresses. They both look hand made.

The strap on the blue dress needs repair and unfortunately when I washed it with the pink dress, some of the pink coloring stained the blue dress under the arms. I listed the pink one on Ebay.

I wish some of the dresses were my size. I really love this black and white party dress. The black is velvet. You can see it here

Found some dresses from the 50's I think

I love the white flowers on the bottom of this dress


Lorrie Deb yellow dress

Youth Fair Petites

This is another velvet dress. I love the bead work on the bottom of it.

If anyone has any keywords or suggestions to get these to sell, please let me know. I don't list a lot of clothing but thought since I had it, I might as well give it the old college try.

  1. I've always been drawn to retro dancing costumes, I suppose because they're so unique :) Love this set you scored here.
