Today is Vintage Black Friday hosted by the French Cupboard (click here to join). I had a few pieces to share today, one for fun, the other has memories.
My friend Jess that has the store Tinsel Bright, was out scavenging one day and came upon a place that had three storage buildings full of goodies, all owned by an elderly couple. One of the things she found was this costume piece. We think it was part of a dance hall gal's costume. Surprisingly it is in good shape, but nonetheless fragile, and is now viewed under glass with a tiara sitting on top of the frame.
My next treasure is a pair of train bookends. Marked Japan in gold lettering, my husband remembers having them on his childhood bookcase. After his dad passed away, they came to our home. The train plaque/wall vase was a recent find at Goodwill for $1.99. It is also marked Japan.
Speaking of things that are Black, I am finally ready to post the shower photos. As you will recall, it was a black and white theme. Unfortunately, there had been a glitch in my camera, and I have had to wait for photos from others to use. I will have everything ready for Saturday to finally post. It had been a wonderful shower and I was glad to see that the bride-to-be was so pleased.
See you tomorrow. Please don't forget to stop by and see what everyone is posting for Vintage Black Friday. The corset and train graphics were courtesy of the Graphics Fairy.
Have a good day.
