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 held our first ever vintage fashion auction this year and were very pleased with the results. 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. We are hoping to repeat our success with another auction next spring and will be looking for entries in the autumn.
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!
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.
Last year I catalogued my first online vintage auction here at Peter Francis Auctioneers and am hoping to do another one next year.
