A vintage wedding dress donated to a charity thrift shop in England has attracted admirers from around the world - not because it's a rare designer find but because of the priceless meaning behind it.
The staff at St Gemma's Hospice Charity Shop in Leeds, were shocked to find a love letter attached to the Lace Peplum 1950s gown. It read, "I wish any lady who takes this dress to have a life with her loved one, 56 years like I did, happy years. I was a lucky man to marry a lady like mine." What a heart warming tribute to marriage!
In an effort to find the mystery man, they posted a call-out on Facebook. So many brides inquired about purchasing the "good luck" dress that they decided to put it up for auction on Ebay. As of publication, the bids were up to € 4000, and all proceeds will go towards providing hospice care for patients with terminal illness.
The kind gentleman donated the beautiful vintage wedding dress to St Gemma's Hospice this week. He is a big fan of the Hospice and is overwhelmed with the International attention that his late wife's dress is generating by being auctioned on eBay. He is so happy and proud that the Hospice will benefit from funds raised by the auction of the dress. He wishes to remain anonymous and we fully respect his decision but he is watching the media frenzy with interest and thinks it is wonderful. We have thanked him so much for his kindness and he would like to thank everyone for their support.
