So, here I go again tantalizing you with tales of remarkable discoveries. Yesterday, Christmas Eve, found me scouting through a huge flea market in San Telmo barrio of Buenos Aires, de Argentina. Like the one in Montevideo, so many luxury relics of wealthy families of the past. Although the majority in this one is “hippie” style goods, leather, modern fur and artwork, the small selection of early mid-century treasures is excellent.
I bought, after regretfully acknowledging that I couldn’t buy everything I found, 3 handmade dresses from the 1940’s. Such fun! I’m sure that Evita would have approved.
Although it will be some time before Madge, Stella and Giselle can model them properly, I will attempt to photograph them all by mid-January. Until then, we’re still watching finds from November. Stay tuned . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
