Always a thrill when I stumble across a new thrift shop. This was on the way to our cabin. I scored big time on the scarves.
including this Richard Allen. I believe he designed for Jacqmar and I have several tucked away somewhere. I will try to collect them together and list them on flickr.
Unfortunately, in my excitement, and given the fact that I had a very impatient R sitting in the car, I made quite a few mistakes....as in this interesting Sorbonne scarf that has tons of color bleed. Still, they will all go into my craft box.
Scooped up some delightful, sell able fabrics, like this 1970s piece
4 yards of quilting cotton and some ticking...one is a pillowcase and quite old I think. The other is a remnant and I never know whether to even it out.... as it is quite difficult to describe or show a piece that is cut into.
I will certainly make a return visit as I spied a great pile of old blankets .... next time I will allot more time
Once at the cabin I mended this 30s star quilt as much as I could ....I am not an expert restorer. Already up on etsy, although I do not know why I am bothering to list when the postal strike is ongoing.
