I adore coming across vintage pieces for children, usually at flea markets and occasionally at a yard sale. Finding pieces for my kids to wear doesn’t happen very often as my 9 year old is taller than most girls her age and my boys are well boys in every sense of the word. Rough, tumble play in the dirt boys so finding something that isn’t delicate is hard. However I came across these children’s coats a while back and I just finished cleaning them before listing in the shop. I may keep the bigger coat for one of the boys to wear.
Now the blue coat has flower buttons on it so I believe it is for a little girl, however my 3 year old was gracious enough to try it on for me. (please don’t mind the crazy hair and clothes he wouldn’t let me change him before taking his picture)
The other yellow coat was to small for him to even attempt to put it on.
I also love infant clothing, sometimes a pregnancy center I donate to gives them to me because they can’t give them away to their clients and nor do their clients want such things. So we trade, I give them a box a diapers and they give me a small bag or box of vintage clothing, that is my kind of barter system. Here are a few pieces I’ve found in those bags or boxes.
The peach cardigan actually has a pair of booties with it and the blue outfit has a matching hat as well.
I can’t wait for this next baby to be born so I can dress him or her up in pretty vintage pieces.
Until next time,
