Today's Yard Sale Catch O' the Day: with winter just around the corner, we managed to pick up a slew of men's scarves in wool & rayon. Most were the trad patterns: paisleys, pasileys or how about some paisleys; not that I have anything against paisley (unlike Hal Rubenstein, author of Nothing Goes With Paisley) but sometimes we get something different.

We popped in to wish Ian Drummond (the Ian Drummond Collection) felicitations on moving into his new digs out Islington Way. Ian's space is open to film & tv costumers and his incredible collection of vintage clothing is for rent only. He does sell a few times a year: at the CAFTCAD Shows, next one OCT. 23/10; and at the Christie Antique Show, coming up September 11, 2010.
Sharing this space with is Ian, is the lovely Caitlin whose The Wear & Now also rents to film and tv and has found a niche by supplying all kinds of uniforms.

Found this week, a pair of vintage Russian army goggles, should go well with a steampunk look, I think.
Other news on the horizon, we're starting to get ready for the Toronto Vintage Clothing and Textile Show at the CNIB campus on Bayview Ave in Toronto on Sat September 25, 2010
Unfortunately there's another show on that day which has very small vintage component but a large advertising budget so our show may get lost in the shuffle. Their show is all weekend, so visit us first!

Let me clarify that title a bit. Some lowlife took mine from my bike (probably ended up at Igor's, who knows.) This one is 1920s '30 vintage I believe. It will be chained down.
