Lovely Hand-Embroidered Collar

I saw a small huipil yesterday in the sale pile and had to bring it home; the huipil itself was nothing special, but the collar was beautiful! It's all hand-embroidered, which is relatively uncommon. It features roses and three little people.

what a pleasant surprise to find something of your interest at a thrift shop!

Well, it's not a thrift shop, it's a store here in Guatemala that sells used textiles (among tons of other things). All the huipiles I buy are used, so it is not unusual. It was just a good find because it was on sale.
