Vintage Clothing Show ~ Chateau Laurier

~~~
There is an amazing Vintage Clothing Show in Ottawa, Ontario every November. This year the 24th annual Vintage Clothing and Textiles Show will be held on Sunday November 9, 2008. I have updated this post to announce that I will be a vendor at this year's show!
~~~
The show is held in the beautiful Chateau Laurier Hotel in downtown Ottawa.

This pretty castle has certainly inspired me to find some stunning Vintage Dresses.


I love this blue Tulle Prom Dress


Tulle and lace make a lovely combination!


So pretty and delicate . . .




My daughter hopes this one never sells . . . . LOL



Lace and rhinestones are beautiful too.
and I couldn't resist this little pink and white cutie

Hope to see you at the show !

Hey Jenn! That would be great if you could make it. I am located in booth #2 (still to be confirmed) at this point. It is second on the right as you enter the main doors of the Ballroom. I would love to meet you!

I just acquired the most beautiful off white strapless prom dress from way back. It's gorg! In fact, I took a close up shot of a necklace for my store and liked it so much I had business cards made. I'd sure love to come way up North and visit you @ the show! Love all your dresses. Esp. the blue. My fav color!
