If you "like" A Joyful Handmaiden's Facebook page you would have seen that earlier this week I found a vintage coat at one of my least-likely-to-visit thrift stores (that changed!). While I normally try not to buy an item that is full priced from the thrift store, one can't even buy a modern coat for $11 in pristine condition.
We have some snow, so this morning I convinced one of my brothers to follow me outside and grab a few pictures.
As you can see, it has enough fur on the collar and sleeves to keep anyone toasty warm!
The coat has a tiny label on it, but it doesn't give very many clues as to its age. I think it looks 1930s after finding some images on pinterest. But then again, if you look for 1970s coats, they look interestingly familiar to that of the 30s.
Looking at the notched collars on this picture found here, the belted waist, the double breasted buttons and such, I still want to believe that it's from the 30s. Does anyone else have a clue?
Now I just need to find a suitable 30s style hat (that fits my large head!) to sport around. ;)
