Vintage Collection


I love vintage clothing. About 2 years ago, I began collecting vintage wedding gowns. I have some of these gowns on display in September's Bride.

I enjoy looking at the design and workmanship of each gown. I touch the fabric reverently, wondering about the bride who first wore the gown and what direction her life has taken. What dreams did she have when she chose or made this garment?

Some gowns I find tucked in the back of antique stores. I take them home and carefully clean them before determining if I want to add the gown to my collection or resell it.

Sometimes someone will bring me a family gown that has been carefully stored. I love these because I get to know something about the original bride.

Stop in and see some of my collection!

September's Bride...a fresh approach to formal.

I hear Karen found her dress and bought it last night! I cannot wait to see a picture of it. Isn't she gorgeous? Tall, slender, beautiful dark hair, cute button nose. Gosh, it sounds like I have a girl-crush on Karen. She really is a great gal! :) I miss working with her.
