I had lunch with Gina and Linda at Bouckville Monday, and both of them had some treasures in pink to show. I do not think of any of us as necessarily pink people (not that there's anything wrong with that) but more as people who buy pink to sell. Pink always sells. Most of my pink treasures came from my second day at Bouckville; hence the name of this post. Also, it keeps me from using a cliche (in the pink!) or having to think too hard. At left, pillowcases; at right, a feedsack.
My favorite pink find by far was a quilt top; Dresden plates in 1930s prints on a pink background. With pink blanket stitching for good measure.
In addition to great florals, there were occasional novelty prints.
My apologies for the last fabric. I'm sure we've all seen quite enough of fabric with elephants playing croquet.
I picked up a few samplers and such.
And a great piece of fabric, regrettably small.
Day 3 of Bouckville was really good. I bumped into a few friends, and I met up later with Gina and her husband Paul, and Colleen and her husband Chris. I think of Bouckville as kind of a class reunion, if you went to a high school where you actually liked the people. (And if you went to a high school with 2,000 antique dealers and lots of great stuff.) More to come!
