Give Me Liberty!

I mentioned I was going to an antiques festival this past weekend and hoped to come home with some great finds. As always, even when you go with an idea in mind, you never know what you are going to come home with.

Liberty antiques festival is actually pretty good. I was looking for things like vintage feathers and pins but didn't come home with either of that. I did buy a monogrammed pillow made from vintage grain bag fabric and a folk are mini vanity mirror. I also got this adorable little silverplate pitcher for $5.

I shined it up a bit. It isn't perfect but that doesn't bother me. I like how the silver looks like gathered fabric.

On the fashion front I got two vintage bags. This first one is a red, probably '80s, leather clutch.

It's a good large size but not over-sized and has two compartments. I think it was $20.

I also got this adorable little faux croc bag in black patent. It's very petite but just adorable.

I wouldn't classify it as pristine but I'd give it a good 90 - 95%.

Liberty was the source of my vintage lizard bag. So don't overlook the antiques festivals. Typically it's furniture, jewelry and housewares but this year there was a dealer who had only vintage lingerie. Miss C went with me and she got a lovely piece there.

You never know what you're going to find!
