One of my favorite Etsy phenomena is when you have a vintage something in your shop--in my case, usually a dress--and you or someone else finds its twin or near-twin! This has happened to me several times now in my year of selling on Etsy, and it tickles me every time.
Two of my dresses found their near-twins in a single day recently! The first was when Becky of the wonderful BeckyDrolenVintage shop let me know that she had the near-twin of the 1960s seersucker stripe dress in my shop. Photos below--Becky's is on the left and mine is on the right. The only difference that I can see is the collar. I'm very curious about the story behind these dresses!
The same day I got Becky's message, I was reading the Capricious Traveler blog. I have been a fan of the CapriciousTraveler shop as long as I've been selling on Etsy. I saw in Mitsie's shop update the near-twin of another of my dresses. The CapriciousTraveler dress (on the right below) is chocolate brown, has more buttons on the bodice (the same buttons that are on mine), a larger print, and a nifty white border on the bottom. (I thought mine might be missing that border because it came from our big score last summer, and that lady was quite petite and hemmed everything, but I don't see the border on the hem--unless it was cut off.) Also, Mistie's dress has the label (the previous owner of mine removed the labels from many of her dresses), so now I know it's a Henry Lee.
Found any fun twins or near-twins on Etsy?
