Hot Resale: Vintage Prairie Dresses

Here’s an example of an unexpected hot resale. Maybe  Old West reenactment clubs are quite popular or perhaps women in 2016 just don’t have enough calico and lace, but I just had no idea there was such a market for prairie dresses. Also know listed as: boho, 70s, corset, and romantic dresses. These words are important because if you find one of these  beautiesyou need to use those terms in your title.

The most popular brands are Gunne Sax and Laura Ashley, bringing $30 and up, even if they are poorly photographed. The most beautifully modeled dresses go for over $100. However, if you find a vintage 1970s dress that looks the part, you may be able to get a good price for them even without the brand name.

The more trimmings on these dresses, the better. Look for corset laces, lace trim, crochet, gathered or ruffled hems, and prints. Each of these example links to the original listing in the caption so you can see all the details.
