Beautifully illustrated 1940 catalogue celebrating Charles F. Berg's 10th anniversary in their still standing Art Deco building on SW Broadway in Portland, Oregon.
The charming descriptions of the clothing are an excellent compliment to the lovely illustrations. Further proving there is nothing new under the sun and if we wait long enough, all fashion trends come around again.

Returns & exchanges
In over a decade of selling items over the internet, I have never offered returns unless I made some error in the listing. So far it's happened twice. Flaws are noted and photographed when needed or available upon request. As a seamstress I excel at measuring garments, recommend you measure something of similar style and am always happy to walk you through how something might fit.
As I specialize in items from 1968 and before, everything is sold as found in used condition.
Should I make an error, returns may be accepted with notification of the problem and the customer agrees to pay shipping both ways. A 15% restocking fee will apply.
Please note that our vintage clothing is shown on models who fit it properly. Any pinning or modification to fit will be noted in listing.
