My collecting compadres know that antique shops took a real hit during the recent Great Recession. A drive across Missouri on Highway 36 is filled with the ghosts of antique shops past - so many are gone now.
Look at this wonderful little utility quilt. My cupboards are full but one of you should go buy it. I thought it was a wonderful way to use up dark plaids. And red sashing is always to be admired.
The other fascination for me was this little pillow, made of chiffon yo-yos. Chiffon, how odd is that!
I decided the next time they ask what I am looking for, I will reply Bizarre Textiles.
