You Have to Be Kidding! Overpriced Vintage Site of the Day
Over the course of the last few weeks, I have been trying to find a vintage bathing suit in excellent, if not mint condition, with a price tag that won't 'break the bank.' During my Internet searches today, I found this website and this lovely 40s suit costs $499.99 USD! Wow, *only* 500 bucks, huh?
The bathing suit's description goes on to say that despite the musty smell and the fact the suit looks like it was crushed in one spot, it is in excellent condition! I am speechless. Like Temperamental Broad stated on her blog a few weeks ago, vintage clothing is still USED! So if an item is vintage and used, why in the 'H-e-double hockey sticks' would I pay 500 dollars for a musty suit? I want to know what is going on in the heads of the vintage retailers who think it is acceptable to charge these insane prices.
Here is the link for the website:
