Older scarves, or one that go in my Jacqmar, Hermes or Liberty collection, or just my personal favorites stay in the house.
Yesterday I went to get some scarves to list, as usual I just put my hand in the tote and pull out 6 0r 7 at random, and came up with this wonderful, rich art deco silk crepe shawl from the 20s.....sort of vaguely remember it . Its in good condition, will re hem the ends.
This morning I stuck my hand in my wardrobe to put something around my neck and out came another 20s deco silk shawl with double silk ends.
A little fragile, but still very wearable. Problem solved! I shall keep the second one and take the rust one to a vintage clothing and textile show I will be doing in April. It will look stunning.
Speaking of scarves...some one left me a message on Flickr that they wanted to buy one of my Hermes. I am a bit nervous as Flickr is a non commercial site and do not want to run the risk of my photos being removed.
