Something Old, Something New

Kate's created the most lovely wedding corner in the entry to our new space-- With antique bridal veils (OMG) from her collection, lovely lace handkerchiefs, presents like linens and china, and a selection of vintage wedding dresses. We have one lovely 1960s empire gown that's chiffon with subtle lace appliqué, a stunning 1950s chiffon and lace gown with an amazing train, and a subtler 1950s gown that's satin with lace insets throughout the gown. Add to that handmade vintage-style cake toppers, and you'll go wedding mad, even if you aren't quite as lucky as I was-- Kate made my dress!

And yes, we have a veil almost identical to the one in the picture above.

Vintage Lingerie Treasure Trove!

No picts yet, but I just dropped off an amazing stash of 1950s lingerie-- including new-with-tag "panties" (think tap-pants). Gorgeous old nylon and lace blouses, gowns, and even a pair of mint nylon hose. Petite women, run for the blouses! They are really quite special. Alencon lace, some rhinestone buttons, and in perfect condition. Priced $18-32.
