Everything old is new again. For us, this often rings true upon discovering a vintage gem that finds new life in our wardrobes. Handcrafted garments from decades past satisfy cravings for one-of-a-kind pieces with timeless appeal. There is a world of vintage and antique childrenswear that awaits discovery and repurpose but knowing where to look is often key. Elise's Depression-era netting dress is one of many treasures you'll find in Mary Beth Hale's scrupulous collection of vintage apparel. 'In with the old' I say!
These vintage treasures find us immersed in nostalgia. We're transported to simpler times, wading barefoot along the banks of Lake Champlain. A hunt to find perfectly shaped shale ensues and we try our hand (rather unsuccessfully) at skipping stones along the water's edge. I'm left to wonder if these garments could talk, might they tell a similar story? One thing I'm certain, Mila's dress may actually hold such memories from my own childhood. My Mother diligently cared for and saved a wonderful collection of clothing, now sprinkled throughout the girls' wardrobes.
Thankfully we don't need to scour store racks or attics to find pieces like these. Mary Beth Hale has done the work for us with a stunning collection of unique and pristine childrenswear from the past century and beyond. From hand embroidered baby bonnets to velvet rompers and fur slippers, I can assure you, it won't be easy to browse without temptation. But if you simply must, she's offering readers 10% off at purchase with the code BlakeAcres.
