I'm opening up a space at Old Glory antique mall next month and picked up some old Glamour issues today to sell. Before I let them go I wanted to save my favorite images. It's funny how modern some of them look.

My personal history detectives

 photo Marchfinds140_zps03001019.jpg

When I shared a photo my newly purchased flag last week, some of you spotted that it looks a little odd for a 48 star, and suspected it may be older. Well you were right! Inspecting it closer, three of the stars on the outer edge were hand stitched on, whereas the rest were machine stitched. Making the flag a 45 star dating from 1886-1908.

It had a few patches already, and I've been adding to it all week, I believe it's a woven wool, so it wasn't immune to moths. Can't wait to hang it up!

Thanks for your help, you guys are awesome!  


Today I found...

I got to buy some items from a theatre company today and there wasn't much in the way of vintage clothing, but I did find these treasures.  

Most exciting was this carpet bag. I've wanted one for years but the Victorian ones are rare and usually very expensive. I'll name her "Jane" after Jane Marple.

Quality cotton Victorian costume, I couldn't pass it up, but need somewhere to wear it. Reminds me so much of Lark Rise to Candleford

1940s uniform, I think it's nurses, but could possibly be waitress? Probably nurse. It buttons and snaps up the front, and look at that Peter Pan collar! Will need some cleaning but it's just darling.

48 star American flag. I passed it up, but kept thinking about it after leaving so we went back for it! It's beautifully thin and faded, and I'll be patching up a few more places this week. But it's huge! Will make a great wall hanging.

Last but not least a little 1940s dress for my nine year old cousin Pearl. She loved it, so after I mend it a bit I'm sure she'll rock it.

It was only after I got dressed I realized I looked like Wilber Wright and the Eleventh Doctors baby. With 
Mary Poppins as a Nanny. 

It's officially a look now. 

Also, today I listed some items on Etsy from my closet, things are going fast so good luck!

{City Guide} Vancouver Washington

I've pieced together a city guide for my hometown, Vancouver Washington. Whether you just moved to the area or are passing through, check it out for my favorite uptown and downtown haunts. 

I'll be adding to it regularly, and hopefully have one for Portland done this year as well. Enjoy!

March Expo

 photo Marexpo028_zps27c6170c.jpg

This weekend I went to the first Antique Expo of the year in Portland. I miss the days of finding great deals on loads and loads of clothing, but I did find some goodies, and had fun with my mom! 

I met lots of people I'd never seen before, and ran into friends like Janey and Julie and some expo regulars. Saturday I didn't find too much, most notably a 50s suede fringe jacket, and Sunday I went back and hunted for some bakelite spacers (those are the thin ones). About a year ago I saw a woman wearing only spacers stacked up her arm and loved the look of it, so I've been collecting those lately. 

I wore this outfit Sunday, and on my way out the door a women stopped me and showed me a beautiful VFW uniform she had been saving under the table when she saw me walk by earlier. She thought I might like it, and she was spot on!
