Some days ago I woke up to the voice of my Grandmother asking if I was already awake. This would have been okay, if my Grandmother hadn’t passed more than a year ago. So as I was jolted into consciousness and the joy that is sleep slowly crept away, that was when I realized it was my other grandmother, who after finally being able to rouse me out of sleep, began giving me all sorts of vintage goodies - one of which was this purse that contained a very interesting (not to mention huge) one peso coin from 1972. A few hours later I went to her house to borrow some hangers for my booth at the Bazaar For All Season, and that was where I got gifted with the magic that was in the form of twenty year old lace tops and dresses (which she designed and sewed by herself)
I wore one to the second day of the Bazaar. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never seen this material in clothes being sold in malls nowadays. Wouldn’t it be nice if they did?
