Vintage Metallic Trim

A while back, I posted about an incredibly lovely vintage silk jacket.

One of its many gorgeous features is the wonderful metallic braid trim.  Yesterday at an estate sale, I found a length of the same kind of metallic braid.  I am so excited to have some of my own!  There is a little over 5 feet of it.

I think it's a really lovely weave.  It's 1/2" wide.

The sale was a treasure trove of antique everything.  I heard one shopper say that because there were so many eras represented that it was more like a museum than a sale.  So true!  The house is only a block away from my house.  I've walked past it a gazillion times in the 20+ years I've lived here and never imagined what was hidden inside.
