* VINTAGE 1960S NEW CE SOIR LACE WEDDING GARTER BELT FROM THE BROADWAY DEPARTMENT STORE
This lacey luxury white lace spandex garter belt was purchased at the Broadway Department store many, many years ago and one can tell by the price of the garter belt which is still attached to it. There are lace-covered garters and it is just so delicate and beautiful - New Old Stock. Hook and loop in back for closure. The manufacturer's tag says" Lace Garter Belt - From Ce Soir's sensuous collection of beautiful intimate apparel. Ce Soir. It says it all."
The Broadway Department Store was founded in 1896 and went through many transformations enlarging it. I moved to Los Angeles in 1961 and went to the Broadway on 320 W. Fourth St., southwest corner of Broadway often. At that time, the downtown Los Angeles was thriving with restaurants and department stores. We spent a lot of time there working, shopping, seeing the sights, going to the fabulous marble-floored huge movie theaters with balconies and dining in fabulous restaurants.
Unfortunately not like today and the Broadway Department store has been gone many decades ago.
Very interesting to note using an inflation calculator on the internet, if the price of the garter belt was $11.00 in the '60s, today adjusted for inflation "$11.00 in 1960 is equal to $104.31 in 2022. Annual inflation over this period was 3.69%."
All you need with this is a frilly lace pair of panties and it will look ravishing! Would make a lovely shower gift for someone getting married!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
