This is my first visit to the antique textiles fair. And boy were my eyes spoiled! These ladies were representing the Bunschoten-Spakenburg museum (two Dutch towns famous for their traditional costumes).
These gentlemen also wanted to pose for the photo. Unfortunately I can't exactly remember where they're from, I thought from Urk if I'm not mistaken?
Old silk embroidery yarn; amazing so many colours and still in their original packaging.
Also antique silk... it almost makes you greedy.
Beautiful fabric. I love those colours.
Old hats. I forgot how much history we still have here in the Netherlands.
Here they sold cotton lace per meter. Very pretty. They also sold Zealandish (Zealand, the provence in the South-West of the Netherlands) apron fabric.
At Sanny de Zoete I saw these very pretty samplers. I absolutely loved the one in front. A bit a lot expensive for now, but still beautiful.
At Sanny's I bought this sample book with tea clothes. Really great, even the pricelist is still there. A tea cloth sized 70 cm by 70 cm cost 46,5 cents. Sanny said the book is from the 1930's up untill the 1950's. She had more household sample books, I almost couldn't leave them behind.
I bought a couple of small pieces of fabric from these ladies.
My historical Dutch costume fabrics. I'm pleased with my catches today.
In mijn volgende berichtje vertel ik je over mijn antieke quilt vondst op deze markt!!!
In my next blog I'll tell you all about the hidden antique quilt I discovered at this fair!!!
This fair was organized by the Dutch costume society (kostuumvereniging)
I asked all the people for permission to take photo's of them or their boot.
