Treasure Trove of Vintage Glove Uncovered

Treasure Trove of Vintage Glove Uncovered

Posted by Vivian Vassar on 2nd May 2018

What to do with all these Pairs of Vintage Gloves!?  As I was going through boxes and boxes of back stock vintage getting ready for this year's Yankee Peddler Day I came across 2 big boxes of vintage gloves that I didn't even know I had.  Long, short, orange, purple, blue, white, black, you name it I found it.    We've been selling new women's gloves for years but had stopped selling the vintage ones because it was too difficult to list each different pair.  (PS I can't wait for the person to invent creating a listing using only your brain power and no typing. That will make my life sooo much easier !)

The answer ?  I'll take them to Yankee Peddler Day of course !  That's a crowd that will appreciate the uniqueness of each pair.  Some people wear them, some use them in crafts, and some people will want them for resale.  I used to make a Christmas Tree out of white gloves each year when I had a store.  And I've seen people stuff them and use them to display rings.  So, there's lots of possibilities. 

Here's the promo picture I made for advertising the gloves are for sale at YPD. Hope you get a kick out of it :)

When a Lady Wears Gloves

"Gloves should be worn on the streets of cities and large town, when going to church, to a luncheon, dinner or reception; a dance, a wedding or an official function. They are also worn to a restaurant and in the theater.

Smart women usually wear gloves while travelling on a train or plane … or in any public conveyance.

On formal occasions, gloves are worn by the guests and by the hostess, while she is receiving."
