Vintage Black Friday

We are officially one week away from the biggest shopping day of the year. many of us have already begun accumulating goodies here and there. I personally buy year round. But there is something to be said about the Black Friday specials that gets a lot of us up early in the morning.
A fellow Etsian and vintage loving site Gypsy Brocante recently started a Vintage Black Friday theme post thread. Every Friday since late October several store owners and blog posters have brought their versions of Vintage Black Friday to the table. The rules are simple. Post items that are black.

So below I have included a few of my Vintage Black Friday picks. Now before you get all bent out of shape, I did follow the rule mostly...I figure it is more of a guideline right? Oh give me a break..they all have black on them.

First up is this Spanish filigree styled hair comb from the 1900's. Available in the VintageVue shop for only $48.00 this comb would make a great Christmas gift. Have a Gift of Magi Christmas and grab up this comb fast!


Next up is this military inspired trench coat. Made from wool and russian rayon it is certain to provide a warm and cozy Christmas. This coat dates to the 1970's and is available with one of our favorite vintage sellers, GreatestFriend on Etsy. This coat is listed below cost at only $75.00. Add it to your wish list and if it comes down to it, downright beg. It's worth it.


Now I realize that this one may be bending the rules a bit..but I had to include it. It couldn't be helped. Besides The Stones are classic...just hum "Paint it Black" while reading and we will all still be within the rules.

Who doesn't love 80's glam rocker shirts? It is a vintage must have. Not every day can be an Audrey or Marilyn day...we have to eventually clean the house. Even though I love vintage I refuse to master the mopping in stilettos look. Therefore, rocker T's come in handy.

This authentic 1989 Rolling Stones concert T-shirt is available with RamblinVintage for $89.00. Surprise the vintage loving rocker in your life!


Those of you that are avid AlleyKat readers know that we don't do vintage posts without shoes. We aren't capable. It is something deeply engrained in us. Shoooooooes..can make or break an outfit. Shoes like this speak for themselves. Just promise me you won't mop the floor in them. Dating to the 1950's or 60's, these lovelies are made of leather and feature a metal stud design across the toe. Available with PreserveBoutique that is new to Etsy. We love the shoes and will certainly be keeping an eye out for more great finds to come.


For the Hollywood Glamour lover in your life we have a steal for you. This exquisite Betty Rose suit dates to the 1960's. Made of wool, the skirt is a curve hugging pencil and the jacket has collar outlined in authentic mink. This suit is in excellent condition and is available at AlleyKat's for $299.99. Certain to be a wardrobe favorite revisited time and time again. A vintage suit like this is a one of a kind find, only suitable for that one of a kind special person in your life.


The last offering we have for this Vintage Black Friday post is a beautiful copper colored wigggle dress. It features a lace overlay in tiers...not that it needed it. But it is the icing on the cake..only problem? It is itty bitty..and doesn't fit me. But I am betting that you know someone it would be perfect for. Sorry..I don't have a song for you to sing on this one either. I am flat out breaking the rules I guess...but I couldn't pass it up. It does have black lace..

Available in the Rbahjat shop on Etsy for $135.00. The seller believes the dress was handmade and is custom couture. For more information on sizing please contact the seller directly.


Make sure and check out all the great Vintage Black Friday finds on the other sellers blogs too! Even our Guest Author House of Hearts has jumped in on the fun, and she always comes upu with gret one of a kind finds.
