Vintage Christmas Shopping

Christmas shopping — vintage style. Two women doing some shopping in New York, some time in the 1930′s. I love the way their parcels are wrapped in brown paper and tied up with string. I’d love to do that in my store — and probably would if I had a brick and mortar shop — but I don’t think that kind of wrapping would be practical for posting nowadays. I’m still thinking about it, though.

Look at that woman’s handbag — shaped like a shell — too cute.
