We love it when our friends share pics with the blogging world about their collections and one of my favorite blogs to read is Elizabeth Holcombe's "Words & Whimsies" . Her recent post about the haul she came home with from Truffle Pigs is a visual feast! She muses on all sorts of topics concerning vintage collectibles and decor and her adorable pincushions have been featured in several national publications. Be sure to check it out!

Finally unpacked now after the whirlwind of the DC Big Flea this past weekend. This was our best show in 2 years as evidenced by the mobbed booth that didn't subside until after 4 pm on Saturday. We are thrilled and optimistic that perhaps the economy may be on the re-bound. Our friends and customers have always been loyal and we pride ourselves on making items available at all price points; from the trims and buttons for 50 cents to the sterling silver chatelaine for several hundred.
We are grateful that the Flea is one of the few antique shows that allows us to sell our own sewing designs. They are made with all vintage materials and this time we really pulled out all the stops with some unique items. Our favorite part of set-up is show-and-tell when we reveal our newest piece to squeals of delight from each other. Almost all of them have found new homes so it's back to the drawing board to start planning for the next show.
Thank you dear friends for stopping by to purchase and more importantly to chat--we love catching up with you!
