As you will see from the following photographs, the cottage now resembles a vintage fair!! I will explain all.......
32 Eiderdowns and quilts, 11 hatboxes and vintage hats, leather flying helmet goggles and scarf (for you know who!!), vintage leather handbag and evening gloves, cushions galore........
Vintage mannequins galore!!!!
Our dining room is no longer a dining room!!!
An absolutely divine table top mannequin that is a keeper, complete with her original 20's top.
A Georgian leather fire bucket.
Baskets to look through!!
Boxes to look through!!
Now I will explain.......The lady I bought Ava from is moving abroad and cannot take her collections with her. She very kindly offered the remainder of her wonderful collection to us rather than it go to auction. She has been collecting for over 30 years!! Andy and I have had to beg, borrow and steal to raise the money to buy everything (although I can say it wasn't an extortionate amount). I think she wanted the collection to go to people who would appreciate and cherish it. A lot of it will stay with us as we are collectors first and foremost, but there will be some goodies for sale once we have ploughed through all the boxes, too numerous to photograph!! I am tooooooo excited as you can imagine!! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Will post again soon and let you all know how I am getting on.
