Label Love: Vested Gentress

When I first heard of Vested Gentress I was a newbie vintage seller on eBay and had come across the label and immediately fell in love. Novelty prints and preppy things are just two of my favorite things in vintage. Wow, imagine if I had to come up with a list about all the things I love about vintage... Might be a long list. Yeah, maybe.

Vested Gentress was established in 1961 and was based in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania. Their factory was located in Trappe, Pennsylvania, about twelve miles from Valley Forge. The company was known for whimsical screenprinted fabrics. These fabrics were made into dresses, slacks, and skirts. They also had a line of golf wear. The company closed in the late 1980s. - courtesy of The Vintage Fashion Guild Label Resource

I've had a couple of Vested Gentress pieces in the past - this one was one of my favorites. My model sister is sooooo little in this. She's in college now! Sigh.

Love owls, love pink and green, love maxi skirts. Someone needs to snap this up quick.

I've never seen a top by VG. This is a great shape and print and I love the sellers title - farmers market top - perfect description!

Love Vested Gentress and Lilly too, and have collected a nice assortment of both. I enjoyed looking over your page.
