Estate finds have often been in hibernation for many years, sometimes decades. They need some life fluffed back into them. A good bath, a nice scrub, a soak and some airing out is a good way to spiffy up and prepare for their new life. :-)
Scarves are easy to soak in cool water with a tad of Woolite, then a cool iron. Aren't these beauties? I adore scarves.
Even these darling floppy hats from the 70's got a cool soak along with their chiffon ties. They look all shiny and ready to wear. :-)
I love laundry day. Life comes back to us all with a little soap and water. :-) These pieces will be in the shop as over the weekend. Hats first. Enjoy!
