Yesterday at the Wychwood Barns Vintage Clothing and Textile Show. I managed to whiz around before the doors opened..
10 minutes before opening time and this young lady looks as if she thinks she will never be ready... but,she was and her booth looked smashing.
all ready and ship shape here.
shoes, bags and accessories were big this year.
My friend Monique, whom I have known since she was in high school has recently opened a vintage clothing store in the area where we live, and was there to sell and promote her pretty shop.
Part of my booth with a 1930s large 'grandmothers garden' quilt, and a rack of specially priced ($75) vintage quilts. Alas, there was no interest in them whatsoever and I barely managed to pay for the day. Not sure what went wrong as the show was very attractive, lots of well thought out booths with wonderful, well displayed items. Seemed well attended too.
I also had this springlike yo-yo 30s quilt. If I hear some one say 'all that work' again I will scream.
Actually, I think in the days before TV, quilt making (and other needlecrafts) was often a source of great pleasure and satisfaction to most people.
