Vintage Cherry Sweater

Today I am participating in Rednesday over at Sue's blog It's A Very Cherry World.  I have many, many red items in my house.  Most have now found themselves wrapped and stuffed in a moving box but not this cute little sweater.  Two weekends ago I ventured out to an antique store about 30 miles away.  I always seem to find good deals at this particular store.  I immediately fell in love with this sweater when I saw it.  I was so nervous that it wouldn't fit and anxiously tried it on.  To my delight it fit just perfect.  I paid $15.00 for it.  I thought it was a little high for a vintage sweater but this was one of those purchases that I just had to have.  I'm so glad that I purchased it. :)  Today I was browsing ebay and saw the exact sweater with a current auction bid of $42.00.  Now I feel even better about my purchase!  Enjoy...




I'll be adding a couple more vintage sweaters to the blog later in the week.  I believe that I have started yet another collection!!

I love this sweater. It is so cute and, even better, what a deal! This looks so well made too. I'm looking forward to seeing more of your vintage sweaters.

Hi Ann! Oh, from one collector (of many things) to another collector, your sweater is beautiful! I am so happy to see the weather warming up finally! I'm already seeing yard sales and estate sales popping up here and there, and I love going to as many as I can find time to! Happy Rednesday to you! ~tina

That cherry sweater is such a find! It evokes memories I don't even have... a previous owner tying her hair into a ponytail with a red ribbon, popping into her saddle oxfords or penny loafers, slipping the sweater around her shoulders and running off to a sock hop. Vintage charm all the way. :)
