Old-fashioned Bathing Suits
Recently, I read an article in the Ocean City PATCH about old-fashioned bathing suits for sale right here in Ocean City.  The store is Coastal Postal Design and they are located on West Avenue.

According to the article, "...The shop offers a glimpse of history and introduces a new item popular for 2012: framed bathing suits from the 1920s to the 1950s. Each suit is authentic, not a reproduction."

The accompanying photos show vintage bathing suits framed with historic photographs of beach scenes, fabric, and the like as a backdrop. What a unique idea - turning a real piece of seashore history into a decorative item for the home.The price for these items starts at $150.

When enjoying your Ocean City vacation at the Scarborough Inn, visit this local shop if you're interested in history or are looking for a conversation piece to display in your home - or both!
