Vintage Compacts

Standard

IMG_1316IMG_1317I wasn’t going to buy anymore vintage powder compacts! Ha ha! I couldn’t resist this one that was for sale at this weekends show. I only payed £3 and it’s so pretty.  These days I’m much more decerning over what I buy.  My rules for collecting these gorgeous compacts are:

1) price. I check out on the internet what they are worth and how much I’m prepared to pay.

2) Make or manufacturer. I only buy “Stratton” compacts these days.

3) Condition. Many are unused and have never seen powder in their lives.

4) I do limit the design to floral these days. ( I do have others but only buy if exceptionally nice)

So, I have built up a small collection. They are ideal to collect as they are small, pretty and increasing in price.
