Heintzman House Boutique Sale

My spring hat season was off to a great start last weekend. On Saturday Heintzman House was bustling (which is not really supposed to be a 19th century costume reference, but what the heck). Ladies of all ages and a few good men hummed through the house, fortified with complimentary coffee and cookies, doing some spring shopping with vendors of many ilks sprinkled throughout, to benefit the house's ongoing preservation and refurbishment.

The historic Thornhill property is beautiful and intriguing. Ontario's first mud (adobe) house! Since 1817! My indispensable right-hand man Scott and I were shown a piece of this under a movable panel in the front parlour. Techno-nerd that he is, Scott also found an old intercom in a room next on the list for refurbishment. We hope it stays. It's so cool!

Auxiliary ladies modeled spring fashions throughout the house. Thank you to those who borrowed pieces from me to top off their looks!

We had many visitors to our display and two charming roommates in our second-floor eyrie -- Wendy and Inna, jewelery makers both. A long but very pleasant day, all in all, in gorgeous surroundings.

Thank you to Sabina Margitta and the ladies of the auxiliary.

Maya in the gold hat, Naomi in the blue, and their mums.

Olivia tried on just about everything. Here she is in a small selection.

Where did Sarah go?

There she is!

Dorit looking quite fab.
