Lace Snob

I admit it. I am a lace snob. It started when I was young and first began traveling. It was easy to find, easy to pack, usually not too expensive. Then it became hard to pass up at estate sales and garage sales. I always wondered, "Who's hands made this? What were they thinking about as they made it? How did it ever leave their family?" I remember a good friend who lives in New York saw me year after year buying lace as I visited her and asking "What are you going to do with all that?"
I read a few books. I learned about the different types of hand lace and machine lace and how to quickly tell the difference. My collection increased in quality as I only began buying if I did not already have a piece at home that was better.

My favorite places to buy, and all my best pieces are from France and New York. France is a no-brainer, but I think the selection and quality is so great in NY because of there was so much wealth there (still is) at the turn of the century.

My point? I just got back from a trip to Upstate New York where I hit a mother-load of lace trims,, and Lace we purchased in Paris has yet to come out, but in less than 72 will,
When you buy a piece of lace at The Red Shed, whether for a table top or a project, You will always know it is vintage, handmade, and of the highest quality. Each piece tells a story.
From our collections to yours........Join us, Saturday, Aug 28th, Dog Days of Summer Sale!

Dog Days of Summer Sale at The Red Shed

Yes, we are having a fun Summer Saturday Sale, next weekend, August 28th! Sorry to be SO BEHIND on the get ready for several blogs this week. We have been searching and shopping for you! Definitely went to Canton....had a whole clever post planned...but it will wait. let's go straight to some of the treasures we found for you!... Great Iron twin bed....
Love these BIG LETTERS! They were neon signs...but oh how cute they will be by the time you see them and take them home!
Found lots of angels...........
Though the one on the left is from Paris........

Stopped at an Estate Sale on the way and spied this great mirror....I thought I knew what had possessed the owner to paint the lovely iris's ........

They easily came off, and lo and behold....a bit of missing silvering. I wonder what the owner would have thought to know her "damaged" mirror is now the height of Vintage Chic?
