Getrödelt, Gefunden, Gefreut: June 2014

As we didn´t make it to any flea market yet I want to share with you something I won on ebay last month for 8.80 € (Hey, big spender!). It´s a pattern catalogue for, again, SOGRA patterns dating from 1940. The catalogue came with a pattern sheet for 16 of the shown outfits - which of course was the main reason for me to buy it.
I have to say that I was slightly surprised by how prices for pattern magazines have developed during my absence from ebay. I had always considered them to be rather high but lately they have become just a little bit ridiculous. I think I might need a safe for my collection! (Of course they are still cheap compared to some of the american mail order patterns I see online.)

Without further words, enjoy 1940s latest fashion :)

And as always, check out what the other Trödlers have found.
