Bygone Times - Bluezenn Vintage Underwear

Aloha my cherrypies, so this Saturday my boyfriend and I decided to take a trip to Bygone Times which is in the Preston area, for those of you that don't know Bygone Times is amazing place to shop for vintage and antique nick nacks. The shop consists of 6 huge rooms filled to the brim with individual stalls selling all sorts of vintage from clothing to home wears. So while there we ventured downstairs to Bygone 3 which is the 3rd room and I happened to see a flash of pink silk behind a screen! So naturally as any girl would I went to investigate the source of this pink silk and it was there that I found the Mecca of vintage underwear! There were girdle and bullet bras galore all in pretty pastel colours, its safe to say that I had entered heaven!

After seeing my mesmerised face the owner was quick to come over and explained that the store had only recently opened as it had previously been in Scotland. I adored this store at first sight but I loved that it even had a little exhibition on vintage underwear showing rare pieces from the 1930s, which were made before elastic had been invented so the knickers had to buttoned which was really fascinating. The owner David was very knowledge able about all the history of vintage underwear which was great and I particularly loved that he had lots of vintage packaging and advertisements from the past which were simply beautiful. I fell in love with the whole store so I just had to take some pictures to share with my readers and of course I couldn't come away without snagging some pieces for my own collection! I managed to get my hands on a beautiful blue girdle with trimmed lace and a matching blue bra which I adore! If you are in the area I definitely recommend checking out this little store, and it's also worth a trip to look round Bygone Times too, I'd recommend giving yourself a few hours to spare as there are so many wonderful things to see.
