I have lots of fun vintage fabrics to share with you since, apparently, I decided to take the entire month of May off. LOL ( I blame yardwork and gorgeous weather) Anyway, Mom and I had a girls weekend in the middle of May and headed north for the Springfield Antique Extravaganza. I was able find a few new pieces to add to the yellow pottery collection that I recently started (I'll share those in the next post), and found a couple of cute 60's fabrics.
We also hit an amazing antique mall in the Columbus area (thanks Stephanie!). They had some killer furniture and industrial pieces that I would have loved to take home, but didn't bring the truck this time. But I did find a fun feedsack that reminds me of the atomic sputnik or starburst shapes of the 1950's.
I also made it out to the Lawrenceburg Antique Market this past Sunday. It was a really good day for fabrics! I found these cute fabrics all in shades of blue red and green.
A couple more feedsacks (the gray is from the earlier trip).
A pretty sunny yellow fabric from the 1940's and a tan with yellow daisies.
A lovely Japanese silk wisteria print from 1955. Don't you just love it when they print the date on a vintage piece!
And my two favorites of the day...a lovely pink sheer organdy lawn or batiste fabric from the 1930's and a cute printed dress fabric dating to the 1920-30's.
The dealer told me that several of these fabrics came from the same estate. They are in absolutely amazing condition, 3-5 yards each and not so much as even a dust mark on the fold or attic smell!
I have many of these listed on the website already and will be getting the rest on later this week. Click HERE to see all of the newest listings.
And on a completely different note...this new blogger interface is driving me batty! So if my posts look a little wonky, its because I got too frustrated and just gave up trying to make it look right. lol
Have a great week, everyone!
