I have been lucky enough to be buying things from a nice lady, she promised to put some things by for me, today she brought these for me.
Two very pretty embroidered silk shawls in lilac and pale orange
The lady used to be “in theatricals”, which perhaps is why this lovely number seems to be an original crepe dress with additions.
A very, fine cotton turn of the century bridal veil, very plain but hand sewn with dainty mitred corners. I recently sold a length of heavily embroidered cotton net that is to be worked into the train of a wedding dress.
A very nice quality tooled leather clutch bag with a little stamp and card holder inside, that has the inscription “if you can not call please telephone to return”,
A lovely boned bodice, Victorian in the main, again with later additions.
I was lucky but then again I am very polite and chat to people barter with people as we are all trying to make a living.
That was yesterday, and today, as M was off playing golf I found furniture which always happens when he is not around so I have to cart it back to the car! Again I found some handbags, fabrics and some nice vintage dresses, some 50’s wallpaper, and the most fantastic lamp with a 1950’s Italian street scene design shade, I will post a pic later.
So all in all some nice new/old stock.
A busy week this week with a visit to the Old Pill Factory and preparing for Exeter Brocante on Saturday and Shepton flea on Sunday.
