I’m back! I’m jetlagged and should be in bed in right now, but instead I’m trolling the net and I just came across this:
I love Angels: it’s an amazing theatrical costumier in London. The owner wants to clear some space and has filled a Wembley warehouse with boxes and bags full of vintage clothes from the 1920s, 1930s, 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, to be sold off at rock-bottom prices at a one-day sale next month.
Style blogger Mademoiselle Robot says:
It will feature items from the 1930s till now and they will not be priced individually but by bag. You will be able to get a medium bag for £10 (able to hold a suit and shirt, or three dresses) or a supersize one for £20 & then fill it with pieces from BIBA, Quorum, YSL, Bus Stop, Jaques Azagury, & Jean Muir or high street labels of the past thirty years like Chelsea Girl, Jaeger, Joseph, French Connection, Stirling Cooper, Artwork Blue & Stefanel.
Period military uniforms and costumes featured on BBC shows will also be for sale. Angels has published full details about its vintage clothing sale here, and here’s the skinny:
Date: 6 December 2008.
Time: 9 am to 5 pm (frankly, I’d get there early).
Venue: 3 Boundary Road, Wembley, HA9 7ND.
I wouldn’t miss this for the world, but 6 December is also my husband’s birthday so I’m not sure how I’m going to work it…
UPDATE: See this later post about the Angels sale, for details of a prize draw plus their list of rules for would-be buyers.
