Vermont Road Trip

Feb 12, 2011 by

OMG….has it really been 2 months since I have posted?  So much has happened…trip to LA for 2 intensive days with Sarah Shaw, R&R in St. Barth’s, first trade show @ NYIGF, and just this week road trip to Vermont to purchase vintage grainsacks so orders placed at the gift show can be filled.

46 grainsacks on kitchen table

Drove 5 and 1/2 hours to meet Textile Trunk owner Wendy Lewis at her lovely antique home in Shelburne VT.  I was in textile heaven…vintage and antique grainsacks and other textiles piled everywhere….and Wendy there to explain provenance, textile content and likely age (most over 100 years) of the grainsacks.  We spent about 2 hours selecting the sacks needed.  They have now moved from my kitchen table to the laundry room where they are all being washed…then shipped out to our contract sewer in LA and eventually to you, our customer.
