Treasure hunting weekend! And boy, did I come home with a loot!
The wonderful Emily and I went to our local Flea Market and had a grand old time! We also stopped at Nobody’s Baby, a vintage shop incredibly dear to my heart where I know all the lovely ladies by name. And finally, I drove out to Coburg to peek at a new vintage store, Retro Rejuvenation, which was amazing! The young woman who owned it was so sweet and had a great stock for only being open a few months. Okay enough chit chat, here is what I got!
…..I know. I may have went a bit crazy. Here’s all I got: 6 headscarves, 5 hankies, +/- 100 buttons, 5 needle craft magazines, 3 postcards, 2 brooches, 3 pairs of shoes, a lipstick, a 1928 beauty notebook, a coin purse, a 1950’s purse, 1940’s hat, an apron and…
This stunning titanic-era blouse that is in impeccable condition. I will admit to trying it on, but mainly it will sit on my wall as I day dream about tea parties at Downton Abbey.
Wait, isn’t this a knitting blog?
Yes, lovlies, and I’m sorry I don’t have anything fun to show you at the moment. I am almost done with the back piece and finished the stripes on the front. Next blog will have some progress pictures, I promise!
