Do you sell vintage clothes or fabric?



















Sorry, but everything now sold (except the blue-birds sheet - on spare bed)

I have recently been looking at the time I spend making individual listings to sell vintage French fabric, clothes and antiques - I do sell on many sites including Etsy and Ebay and some French sites.

Of course, keeping up with the whereabouts of all my stock and their appropriate listings is a challenge - it's OK because I am very well organised, but I'm wondering if my time could be better spent elsewhere doing what I love best, ie buying.

I have found a terrific supplier of vintage and antique French linens, including those fabulous linen shirts and nightdresses but of course, to get really good prices, I have to buy in large quantities. I am more than happy to do this if I can sell in quantity too, straight to my customers, without having to list everything on the various sites piece-by-piece, and the price savings could be passed on too: no listing fees and savings on postage if either I can deliver, or postage discounts.

So, to anyone interested in buying French stock for re-sale whether it is UK, USA, Canada or Australia (one of my best markets - thanks - you gorgeous Ozzies :) do let me know.

Of course, I wouldn't expect anyone to discuss their business over the open forum of my blog, so please email me direct: carol.dent@laposte.net in total confidence.

In the meantime, have a little look at some of my sold stock throughout this blog, and you should get some idea of the items I deal in, plus of course don't forget I also trade in French antiques other than textiles.

And, you don't have to buy from me in large quantities, it's just cheaper for you, that's all.

  1. Hi Carol, You have hit the nail on the head! It's photographing and listing things that takes so much time isn't it( I do so much prefer the searching and buying)? I'm trying to find the time/courage to start selling on Etsy... but it's such a daunting prospect! The fabrics and clothes you have shown are SO beautiful, I am drawn to them but don't have any expertise in that field... I just yearn! I do hope you've had lots of interest. Jane xx
