Any discerning vintage fashionista will now be planning what to wear this autumn/winter and you're certain to expand your wardrobe at this sale.

For the more theatrical, there's even an American 'checker board' cloak (£60-£80) and an early 1900s court jester costume with bells on (£40-£60).
Lots also include some beautiful 1950s cocktail dresses and a stunning collection of costume jewellery by Alexis Kirk comprising chokers, cuffs, necklaces and earrings starting at around £100.
