Antique Textiles Vintage Fashion Show & Sale

...yesterday i went to the antique textiles vintage fashion show & sale in sturbridge, massachusetts and had an amazing time! andrew took me and i don't think he realized what he was getting himself into, but he was pretty good about it.  i read about this show in the may issue of martha stewart living and being from canada the shows they talk about are always too far away for me to go.

...but this time it was not!  only 40 minutes away from us here in boston so we had to go. i had it planned a month ahead but little did i realize just how good it would be.  i discovered these handkerchiefs there and it was love at first sight.  i didn't buy them nor did i think to take into account who designed them.  after a little online research later on in the day i found the name of one designer who (i'm pretty sure) did the first handkerchief shown: Pat Prichard.  but who did the others, does anyone know?  i've decided to start collecting these awesome handkerchiefs, eventually...

...i did buy one thing though, and the lady selling it gave me a deal, thank-you to her very much!  it is an original drawing, probably from the 40's but there is no signature or anything.  i love it soooo much.  i can't wait to frame it and hang it up in my studio.  



...this saturday we're going to the brimfield antique show, i've been hearing good things!  2 weeks today is the move date, starting the 3-day trek back to canada.  maybe 3 more weeks and house hunting, possibly/hopefully? maybe it won't be too much longer before i'll have a studio to call my own.  :)
