Until recently it’s been rather difficult to find Victorian era style clothing. Now it’s 2010, my friends, and retro clothing just got much, much older. The Victorian era style is coming back!

Mable’s guide to Steampunk Clothing is a great place to start when putting together your own custom costume.

Check out BuyCostumes for their Steampunk kits; if you’re just looking for a quick one-night costume.

Of course there is even the now famous Steampunk Emporium if you are looking for high quality everyday wear. They have excellent outfits ready to buy for many Victorian/Steampunk characters.

Where do you buy your Steampunk gear?

7 Pro Tips For Doubling Profits on Your Vintage Clothing Auctions Here’s a gift for all of our readers who dabble in the noble art of selling vintage clothing online. If it weren’t for you, our closets would be drab and monotonously modern!

There’s a lot of competition out there, and we want to share some expert tips for selling success. Follow our 7 Pro Tips For Doubling Profits on Your Vintage Clothing Auctions and watch your sales explode.

Here’s a succulent sample of what you’ll learn…

Creative Copy: It’s a fact of sales: People buy on emotion and rationalize with logic. As a seller, it’s your job to engage your customer’s emotions to help them get excited about your clothes. When you truly understand this, your sales will skyrocket. Use bold, descriptive, and conversational text in your auctions. Paint “word pictures” to transport your customers from their computer screens directly into your clothing. What will it be like to wear that gorgeous mint condition 1970s Boho dress? How will they feel? How will the world respond to them? What celebrities or movies/TV shows have been rocking that look? What kinds of clothing and accessories would really compliment the outfit? Write as though you were telling your best girlfriend about your newest thrift score.

Ready to learn more and double your eBay profits? Read the full article and you’ll be on your way!
