Let's face it, it never truly gets COLD in Los Angeles. So when catalog after catalog arrives bursting at the seams with winter coats, I get jealous. Not so much for the extreme weather found in other locales, but for the wardrobe.
I think I've stumbled up a good compromise: the cape. Stylish and warm, and here in LA you could probably wear one with a white tank top underneath!
Busy, busy. Doing what? Well, for one thing, I have been getting ready to participate in my first vintage fair! This Saturday, August 15th, I will have a booth at the Silver Lake Craft* Art & Vintage Fair. The Sparker Shop booth will be open for business from 10am to 4pm, so if you are in the area please be sure to stop by. And I can't make any guarantees, but the last time I was at the fair, which occurs every Saturday, the Border Grill taco truck made an appearance.
To prepare, I have been gathering lots of special goodies which include the items in my shop, succulents and herbs planted in vintage vessels (talk about a wonderful hostess gift!) as well as the framed vintage bow ties pictured below.
