I Wanted To Be Like Rhoda on The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Vintage Rhoda Style Clothing.

If you remember this TV show from the 1970s, you will recall Mary’s best friend was Rhoda.

Rhoda was a window dresser or display artist as it was called then and had fun unique wardrobe made up of quirky 70s pieces and older vintage clothing and accessories. She had a great style and was the Bohemian to Mary’s preppy classic style.

I loved her mix of vintage clothing, accessories and home decor worked in with the modern 70s. I also liked her profession.

I eventually did grow up to be like Rhoda and worked in visual merchandising(display) for 13 years.

Here are a few pieces from my shops that I think Rhoda would have worn. Enjoy!

Vintage 1937 advertisement. It made me smile. B-ettes

I found this old vintage advertisment in a 1937 magazine and it made me chuckle.

This is an ad for a feminine product that was rather advanced in the 30s, but the name of the product is a take on my shop name.

Bettes Bargains.

A full month’s supply for 25 cents!

“Wearing B-ettes makes every normal activity easier and pleasanter—you can even bathe during the period you wear B-ettes.”

Guaranteed by Good Housekeeping.

Visit all my new vintage clothing shops in the New Year. Another Time Vintage Apparel

I will be taking a break from selling my vintage clothing and accessories on Bette Bargains at Artfire.

As of January 7 th I will no longer be selling on Art Fire. The venue has deteriorated to a name calling fest of other sellers and even buyers. I have been a professional vintage clothing seller since 1994 and I will not stoop to the double standards that are being allowed to go on on on this venue. I value each and every one of my customers and I will not have your name named used in negative terms on their forums. Your privacy and mine is important to me.

I too will not be harassed and belittled by a select few there.

Please be wary when shopping with certain sellers as you may be the next.

Please visit my other shops for more quality antique and vintage clothing and accessories. Lots of new pieces will be coming in the New Year!

I hope to see you there.
