1920s Style Party – What to Wear?

1920s style parties are popular, especially as a New Years Event. But what does one wear to one of these events?
We have gathered our pick of the best dresses and accessories to make sure you are ready to party with the Great Gatsby.
Classic flapper dresses were all the rage in the 1920s.
Just over the knee with lots of tassels and gold and silver trim. We love these Gatsby Style Art Deco Embellished Fringed Flapper Dress
For a more formal look, we love the look of this evening dress, with a jacket or the longer tassel style.
Sequins were all the rage in the Roaring 20s and this style also looks great.
And then bring on the accessories.
Nothing says prohibition like a miniature hipflask or gun attached to a lace garter.
Pearls pearls pearls!
Pearls Pearls Pearls by Zivyes
Head Bands with feathers, sequins, and jewels.
Or rock a bejewelled turban with this Satin Charleston Headband with Feather and Jewel Detail
Keep cool while you sizzle with style with a large feather fan and the right jewellery.

The Vintage Tea Party Style Guide will help you create the perfect vintage tea party

Best Typewriter Ribbons for Your Vintage Typewriter

Are you looking for the best typewriter ribbons for your vintage typewriter but don’t know where to begin? The links below are to universal ribbons which fit most machines. We use these ribbons on most of the machines we sell. The links below will take you to the Amazon site where you can buy these ribbons cheaply and easily with quick delivery.

If you have any questions about which ribbon your typewriter uses, you can get in contact with us. We are always happy to help out!

Our Pick of the Best Ribbons On Amazon

Twin Pack of ribbons – TWO Universal Typewriter Ribbons 1 Black & 1 Black/Red Combo twin spool 1/2″ cloth.

Red and Black Ink Compatible with Smith Corona, Royal, Remmington, Underwood, Brother, Olivetti, Olympia, Adler and More – 1 Pack


If you have an older Remington Typewriter with the fixed spools, you will find this ribbon works well – New Remington Quiet Riter Typewriter Ribbon (Black and Red) on Metal Spools

You can really have some fun with some colourful inks too!

Universal sized Ribbons in SEVEN colors!



We also use the lubricating oil to ensure the keys continue to work smoothly despite a machine’s age.

Liquid Bearings Lubricating Oil. Please only use a very very small amount!

We also suggest compressed air in a can for cleaning dust from any hard to reach places in your typewriter. But, remember the easiest way to avoid dust, is to keep your typewriter covered when not in use.

We often get asked which paper is best for typing. While most standard printer paper will work, it is always nice to have a block of purpose typewriter paper on hand. Here are our picks:

Scholar Typing Paper

Mead Typing Paper

We also love the range of letter writing sets you can find. These make letters to friends even more special. These Cherry Blossom Papers are our favorites.

If you want to make a copy of your work while you type, you can use carbon paper to duplicate as you type.
