I want to share with you some of the exceptional places that I come across from time to time. These places are gems and not to be missed if you are in the area, or they could even be a destination. Most have a “garden thread” to them. “Places To Know” can be retail, restaurants, nurseries, and other. Whatever the place, expect the unusual.
Meet Kathryn, owner of Kathryn Originals, at the Saturday Vista Farmers Market in North San Diego County. She creates magical blouses, jackets, skirts, aprons, and more out of beautiful vintage fabrics. Original vintage fabrics that were once tablecloths, drapes, embroidered linens, and chenille bedspreads are transformed by her sewing artistry, into a beautiful piece of clothing.
Each of her pieces are unique. She sews amazing clothing details, using thread colors, quilt-like fabric combinations, and vintage buttons. She carries all sizes, and styles. Her designs are perfect gifts for the gardeners in your life, year-round, and for the holidays.
If you can't make the Saturday morning Vista Farmers Market, Kathryn has her designs and creations available online, too, Kathryn's Originals, (tel) (760) 643-1127. Her line of original clothing made from vintage natural fabrics are all works of art in themselves. Stop by and see Kathryn, and tell her VintageGardenGal sent you.
