Some special purchases:

Our friend, Priscilla, was able to find a few Shaman's Coats while on her trip to Vietnam. She has a connection with an antique dealer who has been successful in scouting down the coats. They are not old old, but definitely vintage. They are made of handwoven fabric and the figures are all hand embroidered.

I couldn't decide which of the saris from Priscilla's recent trip I liked best, so I bought three of them.

One of the vendors at the GardenScape show was True Blue TC Collection, selling blue and white cloth art. I bought four yards of their wonderful fabric. They also had several items for sale, such as tablecloths, purses, totebags, and jackets.
And for those interested who missed the show, this vendor will be back in our area for the Lilac Festival and the Park Avenue Festival.

And, also at GardenScape for the 3rd year in a row, I managed to find lots of pottery I liked at the Nica-Art booth which offers handcrafted pottery from the village of San Juan de Oriente, Nicaragua. These are the two pieces I selected this year.
