I admit it, I'm a bit of an ebay nut. I like nothing better than trawling for vintage clothes and accessories, old books and random knicknackery. Sometimes, however the cut and thrust auctioneering world is a little harsh. This is the one that got away; a lovely 1950s evening dress. No, I didn't 'need' it and it sold for £72 but part of me still laments it. Anyway, here is a fond mind image of me drifting elegantly around in it.
