It takes an army of sewing notions to run a vintage store.

  • Tons and tons of trim.  Pretty flowers and ribbon for summer…exotic furs for winter.
  • A faithful sewing machine is a must.  My 22 year old Bernina is a workhorse.
  • A rainbow of threads.
  • Always on the lookout for sewing notions.

Vintage clothing and arts and crafts were part of the merchandise mix.

Gray skies did not keep fairgoers away.

Some chose to shop in the cozy and warm indoors.  The more the merrier!

This is one of our first blog entries so I thought I would start with some photos of the shop.
