Prepping for the show.

Prepping for the Toronto Vintage Clothing Show this Sunday. Check out the link for other goodies.

A bunch of 1930s jackets each with a photo of the original owner wearing the garment. I have some other nice things from the same family including two dinner suits......a bit too heavy for our central heating.

I shall be taking this 40s cut velvet dressing gown.

and this 1960s, beautifully made evening gown.

I have to thank Tracey at The Vintage Bothy for giving me the impetus for this post. She does lots of lovely vintage fairs in UK and I steal many ideas from her.

More to come when I start on the fabrics tomorrow.
and the scarves!!


  1. Hope the show goes well! Lovely items you're taking! :) x

    Thanks for visiting, hope you're feeling better and on the mend and can get out soon to the flea markets - they are such a buzz!
