Some scarves, recent finds

Nice pastel colours in this Daniel Hechter scarf: mauve, turquoise blue on white
now sold.

Unusual silk scarf with tarot cards - in French - in glowing, jewel colours

Now sold
No label, but made for the French market as the titles are in French.

Another black silk crepe mourning scarf
Now sold
It has that wonderful 'scrunch' that good silk crepe has.

This large red and white scarf is a souvenir of Paris

and has the Eiffel Tower as the 'A' in sold

This is a 1950s/1960s mantilla - to be worn to cover the head when in church

Now sold
In black spotty net and a lacy style edging.

A silk Christian Dior square
Now sold
In lovely almost pastel colours, with a smart navy frame

and finally a long scarf from Pierre Balmain

Now sold
which always reminds me of the Peter Sarsted song 'Where Do You Go To My Lovely...'

Not that you would want to wear a scarf in 40 degrees C! We managed to get to two vide greniers today but didn't really find many treasures. All the stallholders were too hot - some had very little shade, and there was a lethalgic, languid feel to the proceedings.

Still, we should enjoy it while we can - sorry to anyone with rain - can we swap please!

  1. 'Your clothes are all made by Balmain', I remember it well. Love the Paris scarf.
