In Which Tassie has a Booth

29 Sep antique sewing machine, makeup bag

Yesterday I did my first ever pop-up shop at my lovely friend Kerry’s fundraising event ‘Greater than Gatsby’ a 20’s themed affair at Hycroft Manor. Hycroft is bee-you-ti-ful (see below picture- which I did take off their website because I was too busy looking around to take any pictures bad blogger).

Here’s my booth. I brought my -very heavy after two flights of antique manor stairs- antique singer which I think was a nice touch.  People kept asking me if I made all the stuff on it,- which I did not because it would take 19 hours per tote bag and I would have to charge $400 for them, and telling me all about the similar machines their mother/grandmother/next door neighbor used to have, which was really cool.  I rarely get to talk enough about old sewing machines on any given day.
