Vintage fashion is an expanding area at Peter Francis Auctioneers and in the auction market in general. Our regular antiques & collectables auctions often feature vintage fashion items including fur coats, handbags, silk scarves and early 20th Century clothing. We never know what we are going to see from day to day in the saleroom and every auction turns up something interesting. We have had everything from an Edwardian driving outfit to 1970’s Welsh tapestry cloaks come through the sales. Currently there are still bargains to be had for buyers who will find prices with us to be less than in vintage clothing stores.
For sellers all of our items are online and as such are exposed to a worldwide market. Valuations are free and are held every Friday in our Carmarthen salerooms. We have held two specialiston vintage fashion auctions. For the first specialist auction we were lucky to have a large consignment of pristine vintage fashion come from one small bungalow in New Quay with fashion from Edwardian era up to the 1980's for the auction and we were pleased with the results. The second auction had more mixed success and we have largely been putting items into our regular auctions since. However if we got another large consignment in we would possibly re-visit this method of selling.
Recently we had some lovely 19th Century and early 20th Century clothing in our Autumn Fine Sale which did remarkably well. For rarer items this is another option for selling.
We are currently taking entries for our next specialist vintage online sale to be held early next year.

Vintage fashion is a family affair for me as my brother used to have a vintage shop in Carmarthen (The Dandy Lion) which I helped to buy the clothes for. As well as having my own online vintage shop on Etsy and ebay.
