The smaller box obviously came from a German household. In fact, I think all of the goods were from Germany.
lots of sturdy threads, some of which are waxed linen, just right for mending a uniform!!! darning wools and a folk art pincushion.
and tons of buttons, including these military ones (showing a very small portion) Some of the buttons end up here.
The big box was also stuffed....lots of binding, zips,elastics, loads of buttons, embroidery threads, cotton reels and lots more. Some vintage Canadian notions. No prizes for guessing what background this family came from.
As I predicted I made a real mess of the Etsy Expats BNR yesterday. The treasury itself went very well, lots of sales, new sellers and buyers, exciting items.
But etsy seems to have forgiven me and some of my items for sale have been featured.
A very personal treasury from bpsbagsntotes, titled My Heart is on the Farm. BP makes super totes and is the sort of shop that etsy is all about. Actually this is not the exact quilt BP showed, but its near enough, another 30s Dresden Plate.
My expat friend artophile made another personal T, a list of items she would like for her birthday (today)...hope she gets some. My Birthday Wish List includes jewelry, glass bowls, a lovely hand turned wooden salad bowl, a vintage kilim cushion and my vintage scarf. Shirley makes super stained glass items.....all kinds of shapes, sizes and price range.
What a lovely surprise to be featured in Lacey Goodies from the 60s70s...my 60s wedding dress fit right in. This was put together by bilbobabilo.....from Bilbao,Spain. For European vintage fashion look no further.
I love peeking into other people's worlds in these collections.
