My wife and I have collected womens WWII items way before collectors realized how cool their "stuff" really is. We have been selling a lot for the past few years at the Show of Shows. I really don't want to die with all this...well, maybe some of it!
My question: We have several tables this year and wonder if there is an interest in our civilian womens clothing or is it a waste of time and space? We don't want to come back with it so everything would be reasonable. Most is appropriate for USO events.
Always appreciate your opinion. Of course, we will have lots of womens uniforms and some special treats we are giving up.

Yes, there are a lot of vintage clothing buyers that come through there. You should do well.

Great! Thanks.
I just pulled out 17 1940's dresses and suits from $14 to $25. My wife will have tons of home front items from her collection plus WAC, ANC, USMCWR, ARC, etc as usual.
Long live the SOS!

There are a lot of vintage clothing buyers at the show but they are all hunting men's pieces.


But who knows maybe non-vintage buyers will like the pieces for period dances or something similar.
