We are getting ready for the ‘ That’s My Style ‘ Vintage Clothing Sale being held in conjunction with the Fiberfest show at the Almonte Arena being held on Sept. 12th and 13th 2015.  Almonte is just 30 minutes west of the city of Ottawa Ontario.

I will be bringing vintage accessories like hats, purses, gloves, and the  orange vinyl hat carrier shown in the photo.   I also have a wide assortment of vintage buttons and some nice pieces of jewellery, vintage linens, furs and lots more.  There will be tons of items to browse through.  Mark the date on your calendar and check back to my blog for more photos of vintage items that will be for sale at the show.

Below is the online site address for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum which is hosting the show.  Read about all the fiber arts that will be at the show as well.

Vintage Vera Neumann Napkins

These are some of the Vera Neumann napkin sets that I have collected over the last few years.   Vera patterns are well known by collectors.  She designed patterns for scarves, clothing, linens and dishes.    She started using the trademark signature Vera on her textiles in 1947.  Geometrics, dots  and bold florals were very popular and are widely collected today.    Items produced from the 1959 to the late 1960’s also had a picture of a ladybug next to her trademark name.

Although she died in 1993 the company continues today and is owned by The Vera Company of Atlanta GA.

I am always on the hunt for Vera items but they are getting harder and harder to find so it is a thrill when I actually come across one in good condition.

Please note all the above are now SOLD except for the black and white ones.
