Description

Make sure you've had caffeine BEFORFE YOU READ THE FOLLOWING , lol! Update on SOLD ones:The third red from top in 3rd photo, the 3rd and 5th, 6th blue and purple respectively in 4th photo have sold. (no more purple but one more purple blue available, which is the 4th from top in photo 4.) Please use these photos to tell me in the convo which one you want. You will need to convo me for more than one and I will adjust listing.
Eight are still available!

When I was a little girl, one of my fav things to do at my Granny's house was to play at her old secretary desk. I would organize my school supplies in the nooks and cubbies. This brought to mind a fun Christmas vignette I incorporated last year into an old antique roll top desk I have. I opened it up and set up a vignette on the top and in the cubbies of old vintage Christmas wrap and supplies. (Paper, ribbon, seals, stickers, cards) It was so beautiful and nostalgic to look at during the holidays. Or you could set one up to look like an old Christmas general store!
That is one idea of how to use these old Christmas ribbons. (Pricing is for one bundle, 11 are available) They are secured with the cute, cute , cute (: original foil bearing an elf or pixie like image and say "Twinkle Ties." Foil is in great shape and is shiny silver and blue. I believe they are 1950s 60s era. Each gives a number of feet (6, 7,8 10, or 17 feet). The back says: 10 cents (cent sign) American Greetings, Cleveland 2, Ohio and Los Angeles 16, Calif (Not sure what the 2 and 16 mean..) Some also say, "Cut Edge Rayon." I am unsure if the amount on the label is exactly what is on each though they appear to have not been opened as ribbon is very pristine and straight. The colors range from red to blue with white stripe to purple to a two-toned olive green, golden brown. Bundles are between 6 and 6 1/4" long.
This listing price is for one bundle. You can view pictures 3 & 4 and let me know which one you want. If you want more than one, convo BEFORE checking out so I can adjust shipping for discount and adjust pricing to reflect number you want . You will see that widths vary, from 1/4 inch (the two thinner red bundles) to 1/2 and 5/8 inches. Just let me know if you want top red in first photo or 2nd purple from bottom in 4th photo, etc. Please convo with questions if you need to know exactly how wide a certain bundle is.
Note: I also have vintage christmas stickers, seals, boat loads of vintage cards, some gift wrap, if you need more Christmas goodies for a vignette of your own. (: Convo if you have questions or want me to put together a grouping for you!
Shipping is for mainland U.S. Convo for Alaska or Hawaii with zip code so I can figure shipping BEFORE you check out, thanks!

I also specialize in bringing you original sea themed art & sea jewelry and vintage beach/sea/shell items for your beach house (or wanna be beach house!) decor. It ranges from tropical to nautical to kitsch to elegant and primitive. I have books, bookplates that make great art, old bottles, letterpress, glass, ephemera, etc. Not all is sea themed. I have birds & botanicals. And I hand paint old signs, many beach themed ones, using architectural salvage wood.
Come sea! (:
Wonderful unique OOAK things to inspire you to decorate & create or to use for a gift for the hard to buy for or beach/ocean lover!
