the baldwin hair removal glove

Does it get rarer than this???
The Baldwin
Hair Removal Gloves:
Have you ever wondered how "ladies of leisure" removed their unwanted hair? We have discovered the answer. The Baldwin Hair Removing glove seems to be what they used. Each is in the original packet with a fabulous retro picture of a woman using her "glove". The packet back states: "A pair of pretty legs in sheer Nylons and smooth silky arms. All ladies desire these...." These "gloves" were manufactured in England. What vintage stocking collector can go without these? After all it's the preparation for the stockings we all love!
We recommend this product for collection purposes only, not for use.

Beautis  girdle anchors

Vintage Girdle Anchors:
Circa 1950 Fabulous "Girdle Anchors " by Beautis are exactly that, anchors! In the original cellophane packet* which states "Stockingless Women, hold your Girdle down with Beautis Girdle Anchor". These anchors were used when a woman would want to wear her open-bottom-girdle but stockings weren't needed. The problem arose as to how to hold the girdle down. So, girdle anchors were the solution. Slip them onto your upper thigh and these comfortable knit, flesh colored anchors provided something to hook the garters onto and hold the girdle down!! How ingenious! No label to tell what they are made from but the fabric is knit (almost like a sweater) and has stretch to it. These anchors are new, unworn and in excellent condition. These are definitely a rare find and a must for any collection!
*Packet is in good to excellent condition

Vintage 'Markline' Rayon Seamed Stockings:
During WWII all available nylon was taken for the war effort. As a result, the hosiery industry suffered. To replace nylon, they used rayon and cotton. We are offering you these wonderful stockings from yesteryear! Fabulous design, color, shine! The body is made of Rayon with the heel and toe of Mercerized Cotton. The seam runs from the top of the heel to the bottom of the welt. Needle 'holes' run alongside the seam at the calf area. Each pair of stockings comes in a poly pack which we feel someone placed them in to protect them as the packet is for nylon hosiery and has a different name on it. However, due to this careful packaging, these stockings have remained in pristine condition. We have opened the packets for measuring purposes. All stockings are new and unworn, black in color and have printing on the toe. Circa 1940
