some of my favorite shoppes of late:
ArtLab - based in New York, way hip clothing with lots of frills and ruffles
White Owl - based in Detroit, lacey necklaces made with vintage lace, so inspirational. my favorite is the peacock sequin necklace.
Adelaide's Homesewn - based in Kansas City, vintage-inspired clothing.
Odds & Ends Couture - based in Raleigh, NC, hand-felted accessories. simply amazing.

vintage lace (image found on Google). i have piles of vintage lace in my collection now, including lace ribbon.
recycled felt (photo by Feltorama). this stack of gorgeous colors is made from post-consumer recycled plastic bottles, with the look and feel of felt. and is currently sitting in my studio, just waiting to be made into ornaments and jewelry. Felt-o-rama is a new find for me, and i am ecstatic to have found a supplier who sells recycled felt! more on that later.
combining the two. the possibilities are endless.
