Market Publique launched its market place earlier this year, offering an alternative to Ebay and Etsy for vintage sellers. The site is still young and has lots of potential to expand but, although there are some quite interesting things up there, at the moment there seems to be a bit of an 80's and 90's bias as well as a shocking lack of menswear.
The dress featured is one of the more expensive items on the site, a silk and hand finished dress by American designer Adele Simpson dating from the Forties or Fifties. Market Publique offers the opportunity for sellers to put their clothing up for bids, or with a straight price, or both. This dress is selling for $348, the dollar price reflecting that the site is based out of Brooklyn, New York.
