Vintage buttons at Rag Rescue today

Sorry this is late. I just had to go to bed early last night after spending the afternoon on the beach with my mother, daughter and grandchildren. Forgotten how heavy a 17 month old is to carry around or how heavy a fully laden pushchair is to push up and down a sand filled ramp.

Anyway, the above buttons are now on the Rag Rescue website.

Antique lace and embroidery at Rag Rescue tomorrow

I've been sorting though my many boxes of lace this week  and so will be listing antique and vintage lace one day a week for the near future.
I am also trying to clear some of my stock so am having a sale in a couple of weeks time of vintage fabric. Now that my mother is living with me I have less space to store my stock and with more coming in each week my stock room is now getting full.
Hope you are enjoying the Summer,
