Vintage 1950s Catalogs and Vintage Shoe Styles

I collect old vintage fashion catalogs, especially from the retro vintage 1950s.

Montgomery Wards, Speigel and others.

I use these to date and identify my vintage clothing, shoes, handbags and retro finds.

Browsing through one of the vintage catalogs on a rainy day is like taking a trip back in time. I also love to use theses “Wish Books” as they were called to help decorate my 1950s vintage den.

Here are few pages of 1954 vintage shoes styles from a Speigel Spring and Summer book.

I have also included vintage shoes from my Bette be Good Vintage shop that resemble these styles.

You don’t have to spend a fortune either. I have all price points and eras.

Don’t forget the little ones. Darling vintage childrens clothing.

Finding larger sized children’ s vintage clothing is always such a pleasure.  It brings back memories of my childhood or the old movies with the cute dresses, hats and shoes for boys and girls. Most times one only sees baby vintage clothing but I have a large selection of larger sizes for boys and girls.

Stop by Bette Be Good Vintage and take a stroll through your childhood past.
