My husband then found an antique shop over several floors in a town near where we were staying called Concord, which happens to be the capital of New Hampshire .... Ooh my as soon as I walked in I knew that I had found stitchery heaven ( not quilts that comes later in the holiday) I found some wonderful things there including the two head dresses that I spoke of last Friday ( see the post on the
Vintage Bazaar) also there were cotton reels, mother of pearl buttons on there original cards and beautiful cards of popper studs as well. I found some original leather theatre gloves too that are so dainty and small you wonder what size these ladies were.....
I bought lace, ribbons, buttons, spools which I might add were clarks and JP Coates and some stunning book plates I had a whole haberdashery by the basket full..... this was one happy lady I can tell you. I kept walking around in absolute heaven.
I had such a great time buying and of course selling them at the Vintage Bazaar. Not all have gone so I am think of putting them on Etsy to sell at some point and some will be keepers for me. I think a little haberdashery and quilt shop with some of my makes thrown in will great or I may well push forward with my website that was shelved because of being busy designing for publication this year.
I was still on the hunt for quilts and feed sack fabrics, whole sacks and of course quilts made from them as well.
But that is another story for you all tomorrow........ Lets just say you will not be disappointed with the beauty of what I purchased and some of the stories to go along with it. Learn about an absolute beauty of a shop in Connecticut and a funny story about the bike ride!
Have a great day and as alway Happy Stitching!
