As you can see from the title of this post, I DID exhibit at Bathurst in the end. The event is only every 3 years so the thought of missing something special which might be on sale was just too strong. So I've just updated my embroidery and life blog (click on link on left sidebar) where I have photos of the underwear pieces which I exhibited at "Bathex" at Bathurst, NSW on August 4th and 5th, 2007. Every piece is wonderful but some of the camisoles or corset covers are just beautiful, and my Edwardian lacey petticoat is exquisite. I'm very lucky to have these pieces, right place, right time and all that. I've been told about some more items which might be coming onto the market soon, so if I get them I'll be so excited. This collecting costume habit is a curse, isn't it? (You know I'm kidding, right? I wouldn't have it any other way!!!) Oh and I bought a celluloid collars box, with a detachable collar, some studs and metal sleeve bands inside for a really good price from a china and bottles dealer. She didn't really know its value, lucky for me. So you see, I was meant to go to the Show, if you scroll down 6 or 7 post you can read a full report of my weekend trip.
