Welcome to Past Panache, a menagerie of upcycled, one of a kind wedding accessories, apparel, and vintage finds. I have always had a wild imagination and a curiosity about the story behind handmade items. Now, my passion is to recycle vintage items and let them tell their own new story.
I just ended a 40 year career in advertising, wedding planning, floral design and catering. Each job had something wedding related within it. Plus, weddings seem to be a common thread in my family that goes back generations. Besides having many family needlework artists, even my great grandfather was a wedding designer. He would go to the woods and gather huge bundles of smilax, magnolia, wild ferns and gardenias to create wedding decorations Martha Stewart would envy. Like him, I love 'all things wedding'.
It's natural that…
