Antique Shopping in St Jacobs

Just a quick post today, as I am in the middle of exams. Sorry if the writing is not the best, but my brain is fried.
On Tuesday, I went to St. Jacobs for what will likely be my last antique shopping trip before I move. I woke up very early, and hopped on the bus. I decided to start the day with a stroll along the Mill Race trail, and had a quiet picnic brunch. It wasn't much of a picnic but it was quite lovely.

Leftover falafel and a latte. Yummy!

Then I got back on the bus to go to the antique mall. There weren't many people there at that time of the day which made wandering around quite pleasant. I'm trying to save money, so I didn't buy much. However I couldn't leave behind this 1950's/60's wool dress. It's a dark chocolate brown and 100% wool (with a lining). I only have one winter dress so this was very much needed.

Not sure why the colour looks so weird in this picture.
It's actually a dark, dark brown.
My only other purchase of the day was this silk scarf. It's not in the best condition, but it's 100% silk and from the 1953 Coronation. Normally I'm not a big fan of this type of thing, but it was just too cute to leave behind.



One last thing, dear readers. As many of you know, I have started another blog about small business (with some millinery stuff thrown in there). I have been planning to write a post (after exams of course) about why small business is important. I strongly believe in the importance of small business and would love to share my thoughts on the matter. However, what I want to know is why YOU value small business. If you could leave me a comment, or better yet send me an email at purlsofthepast@live.ca, I would to love include everyone's views in a post. I will of course give credit to your answers and link back to your blog or store if you wish.

That's All.
