Saturday I’d planned to visit a shop in a nearby town that sells a particular type of belt I’ve been looking at online. At the last minute I decided to stop in Hendersonville, which was on the way. What I had forgotten was this was the weekend of the annual antique street market. Can you imagine that? My mind is really slipping.
I never did get to check out the belt, as I got involved with browsing through the booths, looking for that next wonderful thing. Purchases include a white linen dress from the 1950s, hand embroidered in red in Puerto Rico. I bet someone bought it as a souvenir of her trip to the island. I also found a peachy brown suede handbag from Jana, and a little dish that matches the china I use at Christmas.
I’m getting better at taking photos of things that I like, rather than thinking I have to own it all. A little tour:
I loved this wooden bag with the travel theme.
I almost bought this basket seat, and I’m hoping I stop thinking about it soon.
It was an Enid Collins day. I saw three different box bags, all reasonably priced.
I hate it when some kid’s doll has traveled more than I.
This poster from Springs Mills was part of a controversial ad campaign developed by the company in the late 1940s. I wrote about this ad campaign for my website.
I took these photos for Lin of Vintage Voyager. Yes, these are made by Delill.
Note the skirt of the woman fishing – made from a blanket. I wish I had taken a better shot of the canteen behind it.
Cute box of skates, but what every kid needs is her own roulette wheel.
Great Kedettes sigh!
How cruel is this? Who would buy their kid a lunchbox called “The Exciting world of Metrics?”
No words necessary.
