For me, a shopping trip to any vintage shop is a time for inspiration and an opportunity to think creatively about texture, colour and style.
Every box or shelf holds the key to the start of a new project, just like these black and white zig-zag lines which caught my eye.
I liked the colours and fonts of the books and the angle they were stacked.
These vintage shoes looked like they were just waiting to be embroidered.
Cracking Bakelite was inspiring a new wet felt project or a piece of embroidery..
Shape and Form
The orientation of pieces can hold inspiration or offer different ways to display work, for example, hanging from the ceiling.
Inspiration can be found in the most unlikely of places. A wander around this shop had sparked one or two new ideas for pieces and ways of displaying them too.
