Vintage unused tweed fabric at Rag Rescue today.

Tweed is not my normal buy but when it is offered and in an unused state, who am I to turn it down, especially when tweed was so prominent in the fashion shows in London and Paris for Autumn/Winter 2013/2024.

The early bird catches the French fabrics

Well, another early start this morning for me. Up at 5am to see Steve off to do a big carboot. We are trying to get rid of our antiques stock. He did very well last week so we had to raid the spare room yesterday. I will get my guest room emptied and decorated before Christmas, I will....I will.

I have put some more beautiful French vintage fabrics on the website this morning. Thought you might like to see them. One piece has already been sold but there are lots in the 'LargerFabrics' category. Why not have a cup of coffe, put your feet up and have a browse.
