Vintage textile fair and toile de jouy.

Two weeks ago I went to the first vintage textile fair in this area of Brittany.
It was a delight to find so many people who like me love vintage textiles.

There were a lot of things related to Breton costumes, the culture here is very strong and Breton dancing and music is enjoyed by many young and old.

I just loved the hangers with the faces - I think if they were made again today they would be wanted by so many.

I came away with a few treasures which I'll be using in my work.
I found some smallish old pieces of toile de jouy - just love them.

I was delighted to find this linen braid and I shall use it when I make some more bags.

The red and white damask napkin will stay just as it is and be added to my others. Some with red embroidered with red monograms.


  1. The fair sounds like fun, lucky you finding the old toile de jouy as it is getting harder to find now days :-)
