Niagara-on-the-Lake dinner and fancier shopping than I usually doPosted: September 4, 2014 Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: chandelier, etched mirror, Niagara-on-the-Lake, teacups, teaspoons, Woolrich blanket 3 Comments
Wednesday night in Niagara-on-the-Lake in the summer brings Wednesday Supper Market at the Village. The Chamber of Commerce website says “this fantastically fun event features food trucks, prepared foods, oysters, cheese, fresh local produce, artisans, live music, Wineries of Niagara-on-the-Lake, local breweries, and more.” Yes, indeed it does!
I’m not even showing the other food vendors or the desserts, including to-die-for maple bacon donuts. That’s because I got fixated on the coffee vendor’s setup.
After dinner and coffee we wandered across the parking lot to Refuge Antiques & Giftery. The first thing that caught my eye was an apron made from a vintage sheet.
Then there was the chandelier made from teacups and spoons…
and a huge etched mirror.
I fell in love with a vintage plaid blanket. It’s double bed sized, but, but, those colors! How could I resist?!
The most fun part of the shop was a long worktable in the back where you could create your own jewelry from a large assortment of fun findings. We didn’t have time to linger. Maybe you’ll have time to sit play when you visit.
Interesting that they put a new binding and label on that blanket. I frequently see old blankets with the satin bindings in shreds but it never would have occurred to me to just put on a new binding. Duh! Too bad I can’t sew. 😉
Do you know anyone who can sew? Maybe they’d be willing to help you out. Adding seam binding is a fairly simple project. Good luck!
Love all these bits!
