Ruby’s Vintage Treasures

Lyn also sells vintage clothes, accessories and jewellery under the name of Ruby’s Vintage Treasures – you may have seen her stall at one of our own events or at other vintage fairs during the year.

It seems a waste not to utilise this website to sell some of her stuff – she has been asked for website details before – so here is a first attempt!

Do let us know if you are interested in any of the items shown below – email for more details.  You can pay via bank transfer or Paypal



  1.  SOLD  Novelty print skirt dating from the late 50s/early 60s (?) in a waffle cotton.One small mark which may come out with a soak (I haven’t tried) but it is lost in the pleats at the side.






2.  SOLD  Trifari L’Orient enamel pagoda brooch pendant in perfect condition with all dangles present and correct. 2

3.. Classically elegant Boucher goldtone brooch dating to 1948.  Good condition.  £25.00+ p&p







4. SOLD  1980s bling brooch in shades of pink and blue.  Fabulous condition and a real show stopper.






5. SOLD  1950s style shoes from Hobbs in gold leather and leopard print.  Size 39/UK6.  Good condition with some marks on heels.  Perfect with capri trousers, palazzo pants or your favourite summer dress.  £15.00 + p&p











6. SOLD  Jackie Kennedy tribute watch in faux baguette rubies.  New battery, complete with original box and certificate.  Never seen one like this before.    £75.00 + p&p



7. Groovy 1960s/1970s cape in warm nubbly cream material, fully lined in satin.  No fastenings but you could use a sweater guard to hold it together if you wished. I would say this would fit a size 12/14 best but please check measurements below:

Shoulder to shoulder 17″
Shoulder to hem  30″
Width across as widest point  27.5″
As a comparison, I am a small 16 and I feel a bit cramped in it
8.  This is a dress from my personal collection but one that my boobs are never really going to feel comfortable in. A rare 1930s corduroy day dress with art deco pockets and beautiful pleating in the bodice and the skirt.  It has a side zip as well as buttons.  Belt loop but no belt. It is a true rich maroon, some of my pictures are making it look lighter.  Any marks are fluff on the material.  It comes with a little tartan neck bow which I took off.  The label shows Letty Lynton, Melbourne.  As the film of the same name starring Joan Crawford came out in 1932, this and the detailing leads me to think that the late 30s is the correct era for this dress although I could of course be wrong. It hangs beautifully and would look spectacular on the right figure.  The pockets are to die for and what made me buy the dress in the first place.  Plus it matches the colour of our vintage car.
Measurements are as follows (please compare with a similar garment that fits you:
Bust  40″ (I moved the buttons over slightly)
Waist  30″
Hips  44″  approx.
Shoulder to waist  14″
Length  47″
Asking less than I paid for it – £100 plus p&p
