Seen at the Alameda Antiques Fair
I snapped just a couple of photos at the Alameda Antiques Fair yesterday--the red and black blanket is entirely crocheted, really gorgeous workmanship. The vendor had two matching blankets, he wanted $120 for both--he said they were crocheted in South America. Unfortunately, they were made with a scratchy wool that I could not imagine actually wrapping around myself!
The other shot shows some amazing woven chairs and hats, they look African but the vendor wasn't around for me to ask questions about how they were made or where they came from.
