How to find vintage dresses from the 1940s to the 1950s for $50 and up on eBay article The world’s most iconic pair of vintage jeans can now be found on eBay for just $50.
Blue boutique has been selling the original blue jeans from the 1920s to 1950s in a range of styles, including a classic pair with a blue and red stripe, plus the iconic red and blue striped ones that inspired the iconic 1940s-style dress.

“They’re the first pair I’ve seen on eBay and I’ve been in the business for 40 years,” Ms Wilson said.
“The first pair that I saw were a pair of blue jeans, the second pair were a red one, the third was a yellow one and the fourth was a white one.”
It’s one of those things that you just can’t get a hold of them.
“When you’re talking about a brand, it’s so iconic, they just get a bit old, and you just have to go and get them.
You have to be patient and just get them.”
Mr Wilson said he started selling vintage jeans about three years ago.
“I had a friend come up with the idea and she got the idea from an old couple who lived in the same house,” he said.
The jeans have since sold for $300,000, making them one of the most valuable items on the site.
“If you look at the price, the most you can get is a pair or two,” Mr Wilson said, adding he believed the value of the vintage pair could be up to $500,000.
“A lot of people say that you can’t buy vintage jeans, but that’s because they’re not available.”
You can get the old ones that you see on eBay, but there’s a lot of different kinds of jeans.
“Mr Jones said he could buy a pair for $200 to $300 a pair.”
We do have some very good vintage styles, and there are also some great designs, but they’re still not very expensive,” he told ABC Radio Brisbane.
