At the Show - Accessories

This week's blog presents the work of the talented Lori Ann Potts of Vancouver, British Columbia. An IGMA Fellow, she describes the majority of her work as vintage "lifestyle representation" inspired by late 1800s and early 1900s fashions. Larrianne's Small Wonders shop in Ventura, CA is the exclusive retailer for Lori Ann's entire line of women's and men's finery. They share a table at Good Sam.

Lori Ann makes fabulous jewelry, elegant hats, fashionable women's and gentlemen's apparel with timeless elegance and style. Her shop tables, cupboards and displays are filled to overflowing with fabrics, trims and accessories. She works in 1:12 scale, 1:48 scale, and offers some kits. Email:  mustardseed@uniserve.com.
