Happy spring! I’m spring cleaning like nobody’s business and preparing for the second annual ann wood virtual stoop sale. There will be a couple antique garments, some vintage fabric and paper (the usual suspects) as well as some original art work and a truly odd assortment of other things. The sale is happening on etsy : https://www.etsy.com/shop/annwood on Sunday evening, March 23rd, at 8 pm (new york time). As always – you can refer to my calendar to know what’s coming up. There are some previews below and maybe more tomorrow if time permits – this is always more work than i think it’s going to be.
The beading on this wretched antique cape is all black glass, hand done and super detailed – there are lots of different designs and cool dangly things.
Below – another detail form the cape beading, paper mache flatware, a drawing of a ship, a celluloid flower pin from the 50’2 and some art deco chandelier crystals – they’re lovely and I have a bunch.
I think I’ve mentioned before – I had a pretty serious puppet phase in the mid 90’s – the little theater and odd little cast of characters has been in a box forever – maybe someone will enjoy it. I also made tons hand puppets and gave them away, the remaining spare parts and almost finished puppets will be in the sale on Sunday too.
And shells – lots and lots of shells – some I collected, most I purchased. So many possibilities……….
