Flapper Flock on Etsy

This post was written by Lindy Shopper.

One of the few Etsy shops I revisit regularly is Flapper Flock, an Etsy store focused solely on 1920’s and 1930’s clothing, accessories, and other odds and ends from the jazz era. Flapper Flock is a division of the seller’s brick-and-mortar store in Redlands, California called Hobo’s Vintage. While her selection is usually small, there are always one or two really choice items to fall in love with.

Couple of distinct things about Flapper Flock 1) all prices include the cost of shipping, so what you see is the total cost you will pay for that item and 2) the seller will sometimes include “throwback” items, like a 1960’s does 1920’s drop waist dress. Other sellers try to do this and fail miserably, but with the items I have seen her post in this fashion it really is hard to tell, at least from the photos. I don’t see any throwback items listed right now.

Right now, Flapper Flock has some most excellent vintage shoes and some other odds and ends:

Navy 1930's dead stock shoes, size 6.5

Glorious pair of 1920's dead stock oxfords, size 6.5

White perforated leather dead stock 1930's oxfords, size 6.5

1920's beaded drawstring purse

1930's black camisole - in my opinion, older slips are almost always more beautiful than the ones you find being made today

  1. The gals at Hobo’s Vintage also do a cute Paper Moon setup at some LA clubs (like Cicada Club) – they bring out their moon, dress up in knickers and sweater vests and caps, and take pictures for a couple bucks. It’s so fun!
