Look what I found whilst out thrifting yesterday. 4 lengths of 1950s border print cotton, fresh and colorful, ranging from about 5.5 yards of green to 2.5 yards of blue. They look so summery and neat I will take them out to a few shows.
a sweet London souvenir hankie, possibly pre war.
and about 15 interesting vintage scarves. Of course there had to be one Liberty to add to my collection, it has a bit of color bleed from another item, but it is one I do not have. (I think!)
As I buy, on average, about a dozen scarves a week there are always a couple with flaws I overlook in my excitement. These slightly damaged pieces go into a box for my wholesale customers who use them for crafts and upcycling projects, mostly dresses and skirts.
I would love a customer who would use them as lining for evening bags.....wouldn't that be lovely?
I also found some old quilt blocks and piles of pre-cut patches from the 40s. More on those at a later date.
