Lainey and I had big plans to do some estate sale-ing this past Saturday, just like old times. Instead of cramming as many sales in as possible before lunch, we ended up going to the City Antique Mall flea market and I hit the jackpot. Not only did I find several wrought iron planters for my new house, but I came across a huge piece of fabric that I had to have.
The fabric is cotton with handmade crewel embroidery. There’s a large medallion in the center and a border that goes around 3 edges. Perfect for my guest bed (ok it’s a little long on the sides but I don’t care)!
This piece of fabric was made in Kashmir using a technique that is at least a thousand years old. I’m not sure how old this particular piece of fabric is, but it is unique and the price was right — $25!!
We did so well at the flea market that the other sales that day weren’t going to be able to measure up, so instead we cut our shopping short and saw “My Big Fat Greek Wedding.” Not as good as the first one, but cute and entertaining. Best of all, I got to spend the day with one of my favorite people!
