Vintage Textile Fair - tactile and visual heaven
I think it is the third year in a row I have gone to the Auckland Vintage Textile Fair and it is so interesting to observe what I am drawn to. Bright colour, embroidery and hand woven textiles this year. I love the fact I can reach out and touch everything, I am such a tactile person...it drives me a bit nutty that I can't touch anything in Museums and Galleries, I have to jam my hands in my pockets! Such a feast for the fabric and textile loving senses. And so very fabulous to see everyone all dressed up in their vintage finery. My favourite stall was this one below. I had a wee chat with Pania from Fuzzy Vibes and she is just lovely. Her collection was beautifully curated and made me want to linger.
I will leave you with a mini photo essay called 'What took my fancy'. xx
