Last Tuesday I ended up at a little church op shop that I hadn't been to before... and I was so STOKED to find all these 1970s boys' clothes..
It's so hard to find them in the bigger size (3-6 years ish).. I have 4 boys - so know!!
I find it quite easy to pick up little vintage dresses and skirts for Iris - but boys' stuff is rare in my experience!
I was SO thrilled with all this stuff.
It didn't cost much and it was all in a big pile, just waiting for me!!!
|3cute little sweaters.. obviously beige and brown is a common theme!|
|I think it's rare to find good boys' stuff because the clothes probably don't last the treatment they get from the boy!!|
Do you think? That's my theory and I'm sticking with it!
|Deer cardy and a velveteen panelled one.|
|4 year old cord shorts (I LOVE these)|
A pair of brand new looking longs, that say Size 7..
|These jeans appear to never have been worn! So cool. I have a feeling we had some VERY similar ones..|
|T-shirt - I love it.|
Mothercare tracky top.
|Hoody made from a bedspread (love) and a rogue cord dress that I had to nab too..|
And the best belts ever!!
|Close up of the belts. We had belts like these. They are so easy to do up and can fit any size, almost.|
I think I'll be wearing those..
|Last is this handmade shirt, that was probably curtains before being a shirt..|
Size 5 I'd say.
And to celebrate here are some family pics from the early 70s...
|My twin bruv and I..|
Note the twin slipper thing going on!!
|My bruv, one of my sister's and two of our cousins. Paul is sporting a terrific suit, don't you think?! And I love that boat tank..|
|Paul and I..|
|Paul at kindy, wearing classic seventies boys gear... I would LOVE to find a little pair of shoes like that!!!!|
And some lino just like that too!!
