Vintage Clothing Auctions

The Charles A. Whitaker Spring Vintage Clothing & Textile Auction is taking place May 1st & 2nd in New Hope PA. If you can't make it, put on your drool bib and check out their Online Photo Gallery

I also received notice of a vintage clothing and textile auction in TN. Even if you aren't able to attend, you can check out their online catalog to get a look at the goodies -
The University of Tennessee invites personal and institutional collectors, dealers, and the general public to the sale of a wonderful collection of antique, vintage, and ethnic clothing, accessories, flat textiles, dolls, and print material. Over 400 items, dating from the mid 1800s-1970s, will be offered in 270 lots. The sale will be held in the Carousel Theatre on the UT Campus on April 14, 2007 at 10:00 a.m., with preview and registration beginning at 8:00 a.m. However, if you cannot attend, absentee bids can be made, or arrangements can be made for a proxy bidder.

***Geek Alert- The new Harry Potter book Deathly Hallows is going to be 784 pages. What? Is that all? Only 784 pages? How can this story be wrapped up in 784 pages. I thought the book would be close to 1000 pags or more. There is so much to find out and that is so little pages to cover everything - we have to find the rest of those horcrux, we have to find out who RAB is and what happened to that horcrux, is Harry a horcrux? We have to see Neville get his revenge on Bellatrix LaStrange and will he be able to 'cure' his parent's insanity? What is the signifigance of that mibulous mimbl-blah-blah plant? What was that veil that Sirius fell through and what were the voices they heard? Does the venum from Aragog have any purpose? What did Lilly & James do for a living and how did they become so rich? Were they 'Unspeakables' and what are Unspeakables? What's Peter Petrigrew going to do with that silver hand of his? Will he kill the top werewolf, freeing Remus from the curse? Is Remus really going to end up with the annoying Tonks? Who's gonna die? What was Snape's real worst memory, and what was it that made Dumbledore so sure of Snape's loyalty? How will Harry be convinced that Snape really is a good guy? Is the last word of the book still 'scar'? So many questions. Oh yeah, and she also has to squeeze in the battle-to-the-death with Voldemort.
And then . . . what do we do after we've read page 784?

I've just looked at the catalogue for the 1&2 May Auction in PA. How I wish I lived there and could go and view everything. I'd want to buy it all.

I shall browse through your blog archives now, having just found you, and will pop back again.
