Over the 6 or 7 years I have been poking around this market it seems to be changing from bric a brac to mainly second hand clothes. My other complaint is that many pitches display their goods on the ground....fine if you are just looking, but for me, if I bend over to pick up an item I can barely get up again!
Two very appealing stalls at the Nelson Saturday morning market.
First up'Piccalilli'. Deborah makes enchanting clothes for little boys and girls using re-cycled vintage blankets. ( lots available, and kiwis know their wool)
They are very well made and have a lovely, gentle, old fashioned look....... A.A.Milne or 1930s Nursery Rhymes . Heirloom garments for sure, that also sell on Felt, the NZ craft site.
Note the handmade buttons and the blanket labels.
I was also very taken with Atticusfinch. Using up-cycled fabric, specially wool, Shelley's hand made clothing and accessories
I have a passion for vintage textiles, I even have a degree in printed and embroidered textiles (many decades ago), and I still find them intriguing! I hope to be able to share my thrift stores and market finds from all over the world. Toronto has been my home for 45 years.
