The name of my blog has changed to match the name of my Etsy shop Andy's Vintage Attic. The URL has not changed for the blog.

Oh my, another collection...................

It's time for me to take a little vacation. So I am leaving
you with a look at my dress clip collection.

Some of these may actually be shoe clips but most are
dress clips.

I started collecting these over 30 years ago.

As you can see they come in many sizes, shapes,colors,
and styles.

I used to wear them all the time.

I would button the top button on my blouse and put a
clip at the top. It was so much fun and I got many
comments. Usually about my "broach".

I've also used them as a scarf clip and worn a pair as
shoe clips even though they were dress clips.

Aren't the stones pretty? It isn't always easy to find one
that has all the stones.

These are my favorites. Can you tell I
like red?? Who would have guessed?
And the blue one is just so sweet and
Hope you enjoyed the show. I'll be back later
and show some pictures from my trip. In the
meantime, stay safe,
