It has been very busy at the booth. Also I turned everything around inside and outside to create new displays.
This is a lovely print of a Duke of Devonshire engraving in a great frame.
An older gentleman, Dr. S., found it in the frame bin at GW and simply insisted I take it.
Going back to thank him again, I discovered he had found the other print of the pair, but refused to buy the one I had or let me buy the one he had.
We will resolve this at a later date, Dr. S!
Never too late.
Never too early.
Yards of 60's era pleather and a stack of wood banner pieces.
Oh, yes, a fish!
I do not know if counterpanes were once popular in other parts of the country, but in our family we put them on our beds on Easter weekend.
embroidered sets were made of a lightweight cotton and consisted of pillow shams, a spread, and a coverlet to lay across the bed pillows.
This set is missing the spread and has scorched marks and a few tears.
However it did not deserve being tossed so I rescued it.
I wonder how many handmade items are tossed each day?
Love the quirky fabrics used in this machined quilt.
Another quilt - this one was headed to the bales also.
It is not truly quilted - there are French knots holding it together.
I thought it was a two-fer.
