I’ve finally accepted that I need to sell some of the silly number of sunglasses I own (and I am also selling a few pairs of Naomi’’s sunnies too!)


Yet another pair of sunglasses here! This is an example of a sensational pair of 50s cats eyes.


These sunglasses are an amazing curved cats eye design. The wing of the catseye coming round the side slightly. These sunglasess are in a clear brown colour which is slightly mottled in design.

I am also listing another pair of these but in white

Condition: Excellent. These sunglasses are in pretty much perfect condition. They look barely worn, If at all.

The sunny weather of the last week has rather inspired me with my listing meaning I have lots of beautiful summery clothes on offer. Almost all from the 50s (and a few sneaky later pieces too) I’ve got swimwear, sunglasses, sundresses, the lot!

 Two dresses by the iconic brand Horrockses and some amazing novelty print pieces. I am hoping to list some dresses by Blanes, Alice Edwards, Laura Ashley, Susan Small et al. in the coming weeks!

 A little bit of background on me: I am an obsessive vintage collector and have amassed a huge collection of vintage from Victorian right through to the 1980s. I am about to embark on a rather pricey masters at the Royal College of Art (studying design history) and henceforth I am having to sell off large portions of my collection to fund my studies. Over the coming weeks I’ll be listing everything from glamorous 30s evening dresses, to novelty print 50s day dresses to 60s beaded shift dresses. I can’t believe myself quite how much I have amassed! I am also selling items from the collection of Naomi Thompson, including items that featured in her recent Style me Vintage: Clothes book.

If you are interested in my collection visit for more information or “like” my Advantage In Vintage page on facebook where I will also be putting up previews of some of the items coming up on ebay.


Please note: I have had a lot of parcels go missing recently which means all parcels will be sent 2nd class recorded delivery to try and combat this. If you need an item more quickly please ask and I can send 1st class recorded at an additional cost. If the item you are purchasing sells for over £100 the item will be sent special delivery so please wait for an invoice. 





Most items are styled with petticoats underneath. These are not included in the sale.
Items may be pegged or pinned to mannequin to show fit more accurately
 Most of the items I sell are vintage, this means they will not be like new items and show some age, but where possible I will always mention this! 
 I will accept all types of payment inc. cheque and postal order, just let me know!  I expect payment within 5 days, if this will be a problem please ask, I don’t mind waiting longer just so long as I know.  
 I ship worldwide, just message for prices. My shipping price listed is for EU. Outside EU PLEASE CONTACT FOR PRICES   
I do not accept returns unless goods are faulty.   
Good luck and happy bidding
