thrifting and a new home for Wally
I like to go thrifting at the beginning of the week, if I can. Today I went out for the morning, first time in well over a month. Cleaned up on 50s hand knitted curling sweaters (or Saskatchewan smoking jackets) and Irish hand knits. I also bought this beautiful English silk scarf, the sort I like with 2 selvedged edges.The old label read 'made in England by J.H.Buckingham & Co Lmt London England' I wonder if it was printed in Macclesfield. I had a wonderful day out last year at Paradise Mills and the Macclesfield silk musuem, where I was treated like a queen.
Im in love with these antique laundry labels from alpenhimmel
