Thank you to all of you that left wonderful comments on my last post, I really do love reading them. I have had a busy week going through all the items we have bought and somehow finding room for them here at home...so much for trying to be minimalist...HA!! Knew it wouldn't last... Somehow 32 eiderdowns have been stashed away and several mannequins absorbed in to the downstairs rooms!! I have decided to sell some of the items at the next fair I am doing on the 27th of November (Cotswold Vintage Fair).
I have decided to keep the table top mannequin as I don't have one, the feather fan and the little evening bag were also from Lesley.
I absolutely adore this vintage Stockman mannequin. Underneath the vintage house coat (that was a purchase from a couple of days ago) she is the most divine plum colour with Stockman written in gold lettering down the neck finial.
Another beauty, complete with original corset.
Yet another beauty, dripping in pearls and corsages.
A pair of beautiful original Edwardian kid evening gloves (very Downton Abbey)
A vintage Stockman child mannequin that I will part with as I do already have one. She will be coming with me on the 27th.
Pepe is sporting a rather fetching vintage straw hat which I think looks lovely until Andy said she looks like she has just walked out of a Victorian gin palace and into the arms of Jack the Ripper!!
Some rather beautiful antique wooden boot lasts that will also be for sale. Andy had bought them for some vintage boots he has just purchased but unfortunately they are too large!!
Just a handful of some of the gorgeous vintage textiles I bought.
This week was also hubbys 40th!! He can't believe it and neither can I. I remember his 21st!! We had a lovely day out on Thursday and I promise I will post some pictures when he has taken them off his iPhone. We spent the day driving between our favourite antique haunts in the Peak District. Firstly we stopped in Belper where the gorgeous house coat came from, and then onto Matlock, then we stopped in Bakewell for a rather lovely lunch, and finally to Alfreton where there is the sweetest little antique shop with lots of cabinets to gaze into. It was a wonderful day out and a rare treat for hubby as he works so hard and rarely takes time off.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and enjoying the fireworks.
