Framed Vintage Beachwear

**UPDATE** Look what I won on Ebay yesterday!

$20 - yeehee!!

I first noticed framed swim and beachwear in the post I wrote on Amanda Nisbet, Color Me Coastal. I loved the idea and today I am determinted to find the perfect vintage swimsuit or romper to have framed. Maybe I'll keep it, or maybe I'll make a bunch and sell them in the shop :)

here Amanda framed a vintage romper, just as cute!

  2. love these! and would love to have a couple but they are just too expensive. I am always on the look out at thrift shops and antique places but have not found anything yet.

  3. I've framed a vintage '20s swimsuit and hung in the stairwell of our beach house on Tybee Island. And I also buy them off eBay--prices are lower in the winter--have bought them for as low as $25. I sell them both framed and unframed in my antique booth at Seaside Sisters on Tybee. The shadowbox framing is what gets really expensive. Good luck!

  5. I have framed my husbands Merimekko smimsuit shorts from when he was little, along with my little bathing suit from when I was little. Not as vintage as these, but still cute!
