Good Morning Salvagistas

Our tree has arrived and the house is full of the scent of Douglas Fir.There is so much to be thankful for and so much in store for the new year. We've been in the studio with the elvettes cranking out rusty,lacy,glittery and ruffley confections for the holidays. Hope you will stop by our etsy shop to see what's on tap or visit our little nook on what has been called the greatest shopping street in the country:
Foundry Square, 4310 Magazine Street, New Orleans. We've also been spotted at outposts of cool in the San Antonio Area and just sent a huge order of Storyville Clothing to a shop in Austin. We love Texas and have been invited back to Round Top for Spring and will be in San Francisco in February. More details to follow.

Peace & beignets,
Kerry / BayouSalvage

southern gothic plaid wool neck cuff

There is a bit of chill in the air so have been trying to make things with my stash of vintage Pendleton wool fabrics and kilts and my salvage pile of fabrics. I love how these feel around the neck. Are they right for NOLA? It is supposed to get down to 40 tonight. BRRRRR. I'll have these at the PoBoy festival, the Handmade Nation event at the Big Top this coming Wednesday Night and at Elysian Fleas on Saturday. Stay Warm yall!

Bayou Salvage now @ Foundry Square 4310 Magazine Street!

originally uploaded by rustchic.
So excited that you can now shop to your hearts content at my new spot at Foundry Square, 4310 Magazine Street, Tuesday through Saturday. Nestled in between Nirvana & Cassamento's (best kept secret in town), you can while away the hours checking out local art and trying on my salvage art to wear in person. Velvet and tapestry coats are going fast and new items are added weekly to the mix to keep it fresh. When you are done, just head over to Ms Mae's for a cocktail or keep shopping amongst New Orleans' fabulous antiques and vintage clothing district.
