Mum and I abandoned the family today for a trip to Auckland to the Vintage Textile Fair. We werent sure what to expect but we were not disappointed. It was amazing! We spent a good couple of hours rummaging piles of antique fabric, emboideries, scarves, clothes, sewing items and old treasures. It was great for people watching too, lots of interesting thrifted and altered outfits.
Piles and piles of embroidered linens
I heard the woman at this stall say she had two storage units and was condensing to one. These antique printed feedsacks were stunning but very expensive.
Some of the clothes featured exquisite detailing.
Racks of fur garments, some complete with heads.
Fabrics of all types and era's
The same goes for Allium which thankfully was open because it is filled to the brim with bright and beautiful things for every room.
And this sweet mug. LOVE!
We also loved The Poi Room and Texan Art School which showcase the work of some very clever NZ artists and crafters.
It was a great day, thanks Mum.
Happy day xxx
