Shoulder Bags, Shoe Stretchers and Shop Stock

I've been using some of the lovely vintage hand embroidered pieces that I bought from Jill , in my work this week.

There are several shoulder bags...
Each with an embroidered central panel, and vintage floral fabrics surrounding it.




This one was a little embroidered case, which makes a handy pocket on the front! 
I've also covered a plain pair of vintage shoe stretchers in a beautiful antique French fabric and velvet ribbon.

The dresser is in the shop now.
It would make a great storage/display piece in a sewing room.

(We live in hope of one!)
Gorgeous hand frame knitted mohair shawl.
Oil lamp sold today - thank you!
Its the 'Shepton Shop SoUlstiSSS' 
tomorrow and Saturday - More details can be found on Belinda's blog here. 
Enjoy the rest of your week,Niki x
