It’s been a sobering but interesting year for the nation as we have remembered and reflected on the events of the 2nd world war and the fifty year anniversary of the D Day landings.
At Vintage to Vogue we have always had a real interest and a good stock of military clothing and accessories together with a great collection of 1940s fashion. We recently had great fun using our shop stock to recreate this land army girl look.
A more concerning item from our stock is this World War 2 Air Raid wardens rattle (a design used by both football supporters and for bird scaring} which, when heard would have had people scurrying to safety.
