Nathan Turner's Spring Bazaar by Erin Ferucci, Designs 4 Living

A week ago Friday, Nathan Turner hosted a Spring Bazaar for industry insiders from his divine and diverse antique shop.
In a city that still seems a little sleepy these days it was a wonderful two day event that featured four vendors and their distinct wares.
The lovely Minnie Mortimer showed her first line of clothing which was very young and preppy.

Carolina Irving, the one time style editor for Home and Garden Magazine, showed her new line of home fabrics and Irving & Fine clothing line. Her unique beach cover-ups were fresh, current and offered in great color combinations of turquoise, green and coral. Apologies for the blurry shot taken from my IPhone.

Legge & Braine were featured with venetian glass bracelets, cuffs, rings and necklaces. All the pieces were hand blown in Italy and are only available in London and at this two day event at Nathan Turner's shop.
There were also treasures from India, truly the most beautiful jewelry I have seen in a long time. The quality of their gold was some thing you would see only in Florence Italy on the Ponte Vecchio Bridge. Raw diamonds, mixed with hand crafted gold. Some of the pieces looked like antique treasure. Seriously, it was the kind of jewelry you could find yourself getting into trouble with - one piece just isn't enough. Treasures and Jewels by Vinesh flew in from India just for this event.
As always, Nathan's shop looked lovely.
This shot makes me want to reorganize my coffee table.
These are all textiles imported from England, I can't wait to go back and go through them.I still can't get enough of Suzani's.

The first few pictures actually didn't leave me with much impression. But the later few pictures just jumps out at me. It looks like an amazing oasis of hidden treasures.
