On June 17, 2:00-5:00 p.m., at Taylored Venue & Events at 115 Shelby St. in downtown Kingsport, Judy Murray will present for purchase a selection of authentic Victorian- and Edwardian-period finery, in addition to linens and laces, from her Heirloom Collection of vintage textiles.
Allison Bass Russell of Shabby Allie’s Boutique & Catering will provide an English-inspired Afternoon Tea with sweets and savories. Harpist Sandra Parker will enhance the event with period-music.
A Kingsport resident, Judy has enjoyed collecting and marketing vintage clothing and textiles from Georgia to New England for the last 35 years. Her Heirloom Collection spans the decades from the Victorian era through the 1950’s. She has presented pieces from her collection in scores of fashion shows, trunk sales, and national vintage textile exhibitions, including a 1920’s exhibit at the B. Carroll Reece Museum at East Tennessee State University.
At the June 17th event, Judy will offer selected garments, accessories, linens and laces from the late 19th through the early 20th century. In addition to fine white cotton garments embellished with lace and embroidery, she will feature a number of vintage calico and indigo “country” dresses as well as natural linen “walking” and “motoring” pieces.
Attendees will find items fitting for bridals, special occasions, portraits, photo-shoots, home decor, historic venue displays, vintage collections, doll & teddy bear dressing, textile crafting–there’s something for everyone!
Reservations can be made and $15 tickets purchased from Allison Russell at 423-367-0957 or through “Shabby Allie’s Boutique and Catering” facebook page.
