Happy 4th everyone! I hope you all have a wonderful and safe day spent with the ones you love!
I would like to apologize for not being as attentive as I should be with the blog lately. I own a small vintage cottage style shop with my mom and we've been very busy gearing up for the "season". I will try to be much better about this in the future!
I wanted to share something with you today which is an example of American ingenuity, and one of my favorite finds to boot: a vintage PINK Lloyd Loom hamper.
Lloyd Loom furniture looks like wicker but was actually made from twisted kraft paper in a process created by the founder Marshall Burns Lloyd. You can read more about the history here. Lloyd Loom can be recognized by its destinctive weave, its sweet feet, and its signature trim.
Once again I was out with my mom and it was her sharp eyes that spotted this at the booth of a man at the Waynesville Spring Antique Show which is held on the streets of Waynesville, OH. I shrieked when I saw it. The sweet man, had marked it $16 dollars but told me I could have it for $14. I still have a hard time believing it! This is my second piece of Lloyd Loom ( I also have a smaller rectangular shaped turquoise hamper). which is often gold.
