I was in a park with my children one warm July evening. I was sitting at a bench and watched the kids play. In the corner of my eye I saw another mum. She had a big bag in front of her and the bag was filled with Romanian blouses. You can imagine that I found it hard not to look, or should I say stare !
Eventually, I couldn’t hold myself and initiated a conversation.
“That’s an impressive collection of IA you have”, I said.
We introduced each other and she is Raluca Partenie and she is a designer and collector of old hats. You can find her at : https://www.facebook.com/palarii.vechi
Raluca showed me her wonderful collection of IA, there at the playground. She told me that she had just had an exposition at a library and therefore she had her IA with her.
It was a very beautiful moment ! Thank you, Raluca !
