Milford Memories Summer Festival

I am so excited to tell you about a wonderful family orientated summer festival located in Milford Michigan! (I will be attending and selling my handmade bags and accessories in space 155). Aug 9, 10, and 11, 2014

There will be so many fun activities and yes of course an awesome art fair featuring artists from all around the country .....check out the link I have included

Milford is located in southwest Oakland County in Michigan, the Village of Milford is home to many fabulous family-owned shops and independent restaurants in a downtown surrounded by green spaces and flowing rivers. 
The downtown area is on the National Register of Historic Places, yet the places and spaces beyond it are just as memorable, including both familiar retailers and Milford-exclusive spots.

Every year the Village of Milford hosts this popular festival.... It provides many area groups and organizations the opportunity to raise much needed dollars and a way in which to promote themselves. There are many family orientated activities!

I want to share some of the items that I will have for sale....

Wristlet sets


 Variety of wristles, cosmetic bags and coin purses

Be sure to stop in my Etsy shop for many others....

"Leaving on A Jet Plane"

As summer approaches many of us will be  traveling and as requested from many customers I have designed 2 new products to help keep you organized.....

 1.    The Clear Front Travel Pouch....
     The  Medium Clear Front Travel Purse  can be used as a First Aid bag, an Organizer for Backpack or Diaper Bag..... It's  is a great bag for someone who loves to travel....Perfect for those 2-3oz personal items...

2.   Travel Hipster Passport Bag

    The newest addition to the Antiquebasketlady family is our Mini Hipster bag, perfect for travel and everyday use to hold important essential items, keeping them close at hand and organized in one place.
     The Hipster accommodates your passport, debit/credit cards, cell phone, extra cash, small camera or other small items you may need to keep within easy access whether traveling, stepping out for an afternoon of shopping or taking the family to the park.
     The hipster can be worn on the shoulder or across the body with its comfortable adjustable strap. Each hipster is made with stylish coordinating fabrics, layers of interfacing and is padded for extra cushioning to protect your items within. It is a practical mini bag for busy women on the go satisfying multiple purposes.

                       These little bags are so cute you might want more than one!

Alternative Fabric Options

Well I stepped out of my comfort zone with this fabric....who would know burlap came in so many colors.....I was purchasing fabric one day and noticed about 20 bolts of burlap....Hum.... what could I make...what type of bag of course!
Well here are a few bags....

 I added a removable fabric brooch to dress up the bags

Chocolate Brown
 Light Sage Green
 My favorite Parisian Theme with a vintage glass button accent

Sage about this as a rustic bridesmaid bag?

I must admit it is messy fabric to work with ...but I love the texture?  How about you?  Which is your favorite?
Coming soon to my Etsy shop:

I soon will be working on some vintage fabrics...Barkloth yet another fabric alternative.
