Vintage fashion is an expanding area at Peter Francis Auctioneers and in the auction market in general, with many auctioneers having specialist auctions. Our antiques, interiors & collectables auctions regularly feature vintage fashion items including fur coats, handbags, silk scarves and Welsh tapestry capes. For the first time we featured some 1920’s vintage fashion in our antiques & fine art auction with some success.
We never know wht we are going to see from day to day in the saleroom and every auction turns up something interesting. We see anything from an Edwardian driving outfit to 1970’s Welsh tapestry cloaks. Currently there are still bargains to be had for buyers who will find prices with us to be less than in fashionable 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.
Vintage fashion is not limited to clothing and the largest emerging market is in handbags and accessories, with modern designer handbags and vintage rarities being highly collectable. Neither is it confined to Ladies fashion with Gentleman’s top hats reliably selling well!
