Vintage Clothing Show

This year's Vintage Clothes Sale was held at the Convention Centre, rather than the sumptuous and highly  nostalgic ballrooms of the Chateau Laurier Hotel. You can't stop change, but you can certainly lose something in the name of progress.  Still, the lovely vintage clothes and accessories still have the power to make the heart skip a little faster.

And some of the vendors definitely have the knack of displaying their merchandise to its best advantage.

Pretty pink shoes placed just so and an ivory pillow with ballerina flounces.

Adorable bunnies made from vintage fabrics.

A hat plumed in the most delicate shades of feathers.

More hats of all descriptions, from pert and perky to flowery extravagance.

A table filled with handbags.

A profusion of flowered tapestry handbags to choose from.

But let's not forget the clothes...

Beautiful cottons and linens with embroidery and lace.

Delicate concoctions from days gone by.
