Shopping for Vintage Linens - Part 3

Tonight I want to share with you some pictures of some of the lovely vintage laces that my friend Joan had on display at her shop, Mormon Trader Antiques in Salt Lake, when we visited last weekend. This should be a drool-worth post for anyone with an appreciation for old laces and linens........

Mostly pictures, few words this time. :-)

Below: Bobbin lace, anyone??


OK, gloves don't count as linens or lace, but they were right THERE, so I snapped a picture!


The truth is, for every picture I snapped, there was probably five times that much that I didn't get a picture of.......

Joan makes sure that the lace and linens are clean and crisp.

Below: Tub o' Spools....... and not the only one, I might add! Not much blog time tonight, so I'll keep it short and sweet. Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Next time I should finish up pictures of my antiquing adventure, or just about. :-) Right now, must go stitch!

Hugs,
Cathy

?Cathy I am now officially dehydrated and in need of medical care. They will take me to the hospital and I will be delirious asking for "more lace, more lace". What a shop and the prices looked right too! I think this may be a destination trip for me and some others in the near future. Thanks for sharing.

Cathy, OMGosh! Those pieces of lace are beautiful!

I feel terrible! I had 23 comments on my blog to moderate and like a dork I accidentally clicked on "REJECT" instead of PUBLISH! SO SORRY!!!
Your comment was one of those. I so want to count you in as part of the giveaway!!! Would you kindly comment again? I copied and pasted your comment from the email alert that was sent:

"Well, congrats on your 100th Post & Blogaversary! Woo-hoo!! I don't know which looks yummier, the tatting book & video or the cake. But I DO know that the tatting is better for us, and I want to try (again) to learn. LOL! Hugs, Cathy"
