All in one booth at an antique mall, I found some great treasures.
I couldn't pass these two photos up because those crepe paper decorations look so cool! Must have been so much work. I think these are by a photography student, the back of the top photo reads "Existing light 4 P.M. F/4 @ 1/25 no tripod." The bottom one reads "Existing light 4 P.M. F/4 @ 1/25".
This lady looked so cute, and I love her dress. The palm tree setting (looks like southern California) doesn't quite match the look of the dress. Looks like early 40s.
My favorite finds are these dresses. A 1940s Hawaiian evening/wedding dress on the left (Holoku I am told), and a 1940s Flamenco dress. I'm kind of obsessed with the Famenco dress.
This belt is amazing! While sitting on the floor of the booth looking at old photos I saw this tucked under a shelf. It's a 1950s elastic belt with ballet dancers painted on, and the back reads "ANITA PIENOVI SCHOOL OF DANCE ARTS". From what I can find it's from a dance school in Beaverton Oregon.
And last but not least, a couple of 1943 rationing books. I've been trying to read up on rationing during WWII, and how it works, so it's nice to be able to hold the real thing.
