Let's start with an older possession.
This coat was gifted to me by the same lady who gifted me the long cape. It, also, was her Mom's.
It is THE perfect vintage coat for wearing with jeans. The coat material is heavy and plain while the fur collar reminds people that you ARE a vintage kind of a girl!
(Let me go on record here by stating that I am COMPLETELY AGAINST the harvesting of fur. For any reason. However, since the vintage clothing that often comes my way does, in fact, come with fur trim, which was a trend of the day, I hope that I'm not being a hypocrite by possessing such articles.)
Now.....on to the Finds of the Day! SCORE! $3.00 for the crochet skirt and top and $1.00 for the funky hat! The gods bless vintage everyday wearable!
And finally, in the Garb Department........somebody else's MUFF!
Seriously! A vintage muff!
Just a-sittin' there in a cart full of junque! $1.50 (I added the broach.)
And you all know how I LOVE a muff! The world needs more muffage! ;)
I was almost out the door when I found the following on the floor behind some picture frames.
It was a lovely, tapestry artist portfolio. I bought it ($8) for the portfolio alone (and that goes WAY beyond my price limit but it called to me) but inside it contained the following. The acrylics are signed E. Jones.
I love that there's a ship at sea. Also, there is a print, copyright 1930 from The Art Publishing Co. Chicago, Ill. The artist is Richard Haines. The painting is titled LOW TIDE. At any rate, it begged to come home with me....so there you have it.
HAPPY JUNQUE-ING EVERYONE! xo
