Vintage Clothing and Antique Furniture

I went to stay with my sister this weekend, and what did we do? Check out vintage clothing and furniture stores of course! As if there was any doubt!
My sister just moved to a really small town, and the place is overflowing with antique shops. I fell in love with 2 vintage dressers, and I can't stop thinking about them. The first was a 1920's French dressing table. It had these attached rectangular mirrors that move back and forth. It also came with a gorgeous little matching bench. Then there was a beautiful 1940's dressing table with a large circular mirror, no matching bench, but half the price of the other one. Hmmm. I'll have to see if I can find a little bench that would match somewhat.
Oh, and then I bought the most lovely crocheted vintage gloves. They're cream colored, and I was told they were either 1930's or 1940's. They look exactly like the gloves pictured above, except mine have a much larger ruffle around the wrist. Did I mention I also found a cream colored vintage hat to match? The trip was a success.
