A trip to our local thrift stores was in order yesterday. I had not been for a month and was having withdrawal symptoms.
Besides, I needed to replenish my stock. I picked up a load of beautiful old silk scarves, like this floral 1950s number. Some are making their way into my etsy shop.
But, these two are staying with me. An vintage black wool shawl from India, exquisitely hand embroidered in pastel silk thread, from the 60s or before I think.
and a long silk crepe scarf in the most gorgeous shade of delphinium blue, with hand inserts at the ends.
Oh, and 3 Liberty scarves for my collection, and a couple of very interesting souvenir scarves.....more on those at a later date.
A smashing Norwegian sweater. Ethnic sweaters have been selling very well at the markets this year.
An Aran hand knit in an unusual bright guardsman red. Aran sweaters are a constant seller for me.
. I am a label person, specially when it reads 'made with love by Jean'
