Vintage Block Bilt Leather Jacket 1930's 1

Sold on eBay: Vintage Block Bilt Leather Jacket from the 1930’s

Block Bilt was producing some gorgeous leather jackets in the 1930’s and 40’s. You can see another example of this jacket here. I’ve got a hunch that the massive asking price most likely drove away some of the biggest potential buyers forcing the seller to settle on the sale price of about $1,000. That sale price is a guess because we don’t have access to the exact sale amount.

From the listing:

“Another AWESOME FIND from PortlandStation®.. You will be proud to own it! A fantastic look, and a popular style. Honestly, it looks even better than our pictures.. Be sure to review all of the crisp photos and double check your measurements with ours, provided below. Don’t miss out.. and be prepared for all the compliments!”

Vintage Shawl Cardigan Sweater 2

Sold on eBay: Vintage Shawl Collar Cardigan Sweater

Wow. What a sweater. So, if you’re like me, you love yourself some amazing vintage shawl collar cardigan sweaters! This one is no exception. No doubt it would have sold for a better price in the autumn season – it’s a strange time to be selling such a great winter item.  Selling this item in the early fall would have raised that price to $800+ I’ve gotta believe. Looks to be in terrific shape – all it’s buttons exist and there doesn’t appear to be any holes or snags.

This vintage shawl collar sweater is another terrific pick from seller ‘ozarkdrygoods’. They were also responsible for that beautiful Harley Davidson Turtle Zip Sweater that sold a few weeks back. This Iowa Letterman Sweater looks great. The fabric looks to be in amazing condition with no mothing or separations, it’s too bad some of it’s buttons are missing. Eight stacks seems like the going rate for this piece.
