The shop owners wear 1940s dress and there will be lots of vintage clothing and memorabilia on sale.
This year I have been asked to make a series of 1940s Art-ccordion Picture Books.
Each book contains original 1940s imagery including advertisments, pictures, buttons, coins and music
This pic shows a close up of the locket set in the cover of the book. The locket is half open and contains a photo of a young man.
Set in the cover of this book are vintage buttons, pins and original hook and eye fastenings. The photo below, one of my favourites, shows a page from the book. It is from a film showing a man drawing a seam line on the woman's leg - stockings were hard to come by!
All of the images in here are from 1940s magazine ads. You know how we complain about the nonsense that is touted to young women today? It seems it was no different then! Try 'SLIM on the famous BREAD AND BUTTER DIET with the National Slimming Campaign (?!) I had great fun putting this together!
All of the books pictured here are for sale at Oh La La vintage boutique.
What a fascinating project to be involved in! You must have been far too busy enjoying sifting through the ephemera to do any creating! That would be me, anyway - reading everything I uncovered!
The accordian books look wonderful, and I love the half-open locket treasure on the cover x
