Dawson Creek, British Columbia, Canada ~ 1974
In the summer of 1974 my parents decided to take us on a road trip from Oregon to Alaska. We made it as far as Dawson Creek in British Columbia, Canada. There was a flash flood that washed out the road and left everyone stuck right there. It's a little hard to tell but that is a LONG line of cars behind our camper in the above photo. We never did make it to Alaska but it has made for a good story that has been told for years!
Below ~ My mom, Rosemary and myself Kris in the camper. My sister Lisa and brother Pete sitting on the bumper. I only have very vague memories of this trip.

Featured Shop ~ Alura's Studio
Alura's Studio is run by Alura from Derby Line, Vermont. Her shop is filled with antiques, vintage finds and rare books.

Antique Fortune Telling Set

How did you choose your shop name?
"I recently changed my shop's name from Alluring Antiques to Alura's Studio. I felt that using my name would be best since it's pretty unique. And now that I've been able to set aside a room to use as my studio, it makes it official too!"

Antique Victorian Book

Why did you choose to make/sell what you do?
"I've always been drawn to antiques, even as a child. Especially old books, which are my specialty!! I just adore the way old books feel and look."

Edgar Allan Poe Hang Tags

What inspires the designs/creations you make?
"As for my cards, tags and trim-I am inspired by a few things. Halloween, Edgar Allan Poe and Marie Antoinette. Most of my handmade items revolve around them!"

Hand Stamped Seam Binding

What new designs/creations would you like to add to your shop in the future?
"I am adding more vintage clothing-especially 70's and 80's clothing. I'm also trying my hand at silk screening fabrics. If I'm successful I will be printing reproduction French fabrics!"

Vintage Teacup and Saucer
