I have had an exciting day today, I have collect some item destined for my shop and for vintage hire from a 95 year old lady who is moving home.
From lovely old suitcases to chunky chests of drawers I have sourced some lovely finds to share in my shop soon.
The best surprise of the day though was when I opened up two of the old suitcases to find a treasure trove of vintage fabrics! From 1960's far out spots and flowers to elegant silks in purples and blues to meters of tweed I practically did a happy dance! The best pieces had to be the liberty fabrics still with their labels on and a beautiful piece of gold fabric covered in brightly coloured embroidery...
I felt a funny feeling whilst collecting the items and riffling through the fabric. I started thinking about how much life a 95 year old had seen and experienced...I guess that is why I love vintage stuff so much, you couldn't buy a piece of furniture from a superstore that had a story behind it!
