I didn’t forget the guys who love Film Noir style vintage clothing and accessories.
If you are like me and want to stand out from the crowd in vintage clothing or unique handmade accessories, here is a fabulous jewelry artist that I have come across. Blue Tina from Spain.
I adore this unusual asymmetrical artisan necklace.
Please stop by and check out her website. I am sure you will find it as amazing as I do.
I have a collection of vintage knitting and crochet pattern books from the 1930s and 40s showing fabulous fashions and accessories to hand make. Wonderful 30s vintage dresses, coats, suits, sweaters and more to knit yourself.
There are also unique hats and bags from the vintage 1940s to knit and crochet.
Wouldn’t it be incredible to be able to make and wear these pieces from the past?
Here are a few samples.
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!
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.
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.”

I have been slowing letting go of some of my favorite vintage accessories from the 1940s. The Forties is my all time favorite era for clothing, hats, shoes and more.
Here are a few vintage 40s hats that I am passing along and I am hoping that someone else will love them as much as I do.
All of these pieces are authentic vintage 1940s era.
Many more to follow in all my vintage shops.

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.
