Surprise sellers this season have been ponchos! I can hardly keep them in stock for my market stall.
Of course, they have to be very nice ones , homemade, ethnic, hand woven perhaps....no yukky acrylic for my customers.
Nice old handknits are going well too. My sweater selection has had to expanded as real old Cowichans are getting increasingly difficult to find.
On the etsy front I am surprised at how well the cashmere sweaters are going. I inherited two large boxes from my daughter from the time she was selling vintage.
And.....after years of being piled at the back of the garage mini-warehouse my 100+ year old, hand woven, somewhat primitive blankets are starting to move as well. I have always had a soft spot for these.
On the other hand, my collection of vintage aprons has gone nowhere.
I have a passion for vintage textiles, I even have a degree in printed and embroidered textiles (many decades ago), and I still find them intriguing! I hope to be able to share my thrift stores and market finds from all over the world. Toronto has been my home for 45 years.
Where to find me
Saturday mornings 8 - 1. Brickworks Farmers Market, Toronto
