Vintage Fabric of the Day

OK, it already sold.... and my heart did sink a bit when I found out, but I had to include this fabulous fabric in today's post. This vintage fabric of the day is from a new Etsy shop called Lisa Jane Supplies and Vintage. It is a truly fabulous example of vintage design that you only find on the other side of the pond. Why oh why couldn't we have fabrics like this in America. I dream of overseas buying trips, that would produce such lovelies as this!

Be sure to stop by Lisa's new store and give her some Etsy love!

Until tomorrow my vintage loving friends,

Vintage Fabric of the Day

I am absolutely loving this vintage 1970's poly cotton blend fabric. Not only does it have an amazing oscillating pattern and it's in my favorite collor palette, but the slightly ribbed texture adds another level of visual impact. This little gem is offered by a newer seller on Etsy called Gollidrops and is sold by the 1/2 yard. Scoop it up quick, because I'm sure it won't last!

There wer too many great fabrics to choose from, so here are a few other pieces offered by Gollidrops:

Until tomorrow,

Treasury Tuesday: It's In The Bag a 100% VMTEAM Collection

The craziness has insued again in the McCabe household, but I promised to get back to posting a bit more often. So, I created a little treasury that might help spice up your wardrobe. The best part is... it's all vintage and very reasonably priced! I guess that would be parts, hmmm.  Anyway, happy shopping to all!

Vintage Fabric of the Day

Ok, so usually I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to vintage fabric, forgive me please! I always prefer to buy and showcase pieces that are over 1 yard in length, larger if possible. However, a good friend of mine has been urging me to consider the importance, and market for, smaller cuts. Maybe, just maybe, she's right and I should stop overlooking these tiny treasures. Therefore, my vintage fabric of the day post is actually a bundle of some of the cutest vintage fabrics I could find.

Let me introduce you to..... this adorable bundle of floral and geometric print fat quarters.

I love the bold floral prints in varying shades of green, purple and aqua, combined with an adorable lime gingham and delicate purple calico. Put together by Swell Goods, of Etsy, this bundle includes 10 fat quarters. That's two 18" x 21" pieces of each of the five fabrics. Better yet, this entire collection which equals 2 1/2 yards of fab vintage fabric, is only $14.00.

'Til next time, keep enjoying the vintage splendor,

Starting Over

Anyone who knows me well, knows that change has been a huge part of my life in the past year. My oldest child started preschool, my baby turned two and my business, unfortunately, fell by the wayside due to "sticky life situations." Personal life aside, I have been regrouping and refocusing my business, hoping to hit the ground running in 2012. So, what does this mean for In With the Old Vintage? Hopefully a new and exciting adventure. I'll be ramping up my Etsy store, (adding lots of new goodies), spending every other weekend in NYC at the Garage Antiques Market and loading up my show schedule. It will not only include Brimfield, a.k.a. "The Greatest Show on Earth" in my opinion, but also some great quilting, sewing and knitting shows. To top it all off, once I'm sleep deprived to the point of no return, I'll hopefully have time to pursue my creative side, you know, the one that's dying to escape the confines of my overcrowded brain. New products a plenty are in the works as we speak.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention.... relaunching this blog. I've always enjoyed writing down my thoughts. Sometimes I do tend to babble on, probably making my readers feel like they're on an overgrown wooded path, lost, wandering for hours, desperately hoping that a sun filled clearing will appear. You know, like I did just there. This time around, I'll try to be a bit more concise, promise! I'm smiling, just in case you didn't figure that out yet. Anyway, I look forward to sharing with you all of my adventures this year, and hope to hear a little bit more about yours too.

Here's to starting over!
