It’s on again this year – and it’s bigger and better: from the in-box.
Over this early autumn weekend, Como’s ground floor will be transformed a boutique retro outfitter, laden with 20th century outfits and accessories to add to your vintage wardrobe! With an eclectic range of donated designer garments, haberdashery, accessories, millinery and men’s wear, the Vintage Clothing Sale has something for every taste and style.
This year our volunteer organisers have be inundated with donations, including a very special assortment of haberdashery for all the crafters, makers and collectors. Organised entirely by volunteers the proceeds of the sale will go towards the conservation and display of garments in the Trust’s extensive costume collection.
As with previous years, I’ll be appraising and pricing all the stock and they’ll be priced to sell.

When: Saturday 15th and Sunday 16th March, 10am to 4pm.

Here’s a pic of some hats at last year’s sale – rumour has it that there are a lot of great hats this year too.
