These are fabulous items to use in all your art projects. Don't you love the old writing? You can cut them up or use them whole.

Take a look at the last image. Faith Lloyd used prescriptions and apothecary labels ( to decoupage the frame of an IKEA mirror. It looks fantastic!

PLEASE NOTE: Your prescriptions will differ from the ones shown. They may be written in pencil, have creases or tattered edges, crossed out words, punch holes, etc. etc. After all, some of these are over 75 years old! You may, or may not, receive one typewritten script.

We're happy to combine shipping between the two shops.

Before you leave, though, why not 'Favourite' our shop? That way you can find us, again. It's so easy to get lost on Etsy.

Etsy has now begun to charge sellers when a customer finds their shop via another site or search engine (Google, Bing, Instagram, Pinterest, etc.). We are forced to pay them 15% of the total order (including taxes and shipping!) on top of all the other Etsy fees. As well, if you enter another order within the next 30 days, we will be charged, again. It would be greatly appreciated if, when you come across an ad or listing via any site other than Etsy itself, you do not click on it. Instead, if you would simply go to and search for the item or cut-and-paste the title into the Etsy search bar and find the item that way, you would be doing all the small businesses on Etsy a great favour. Thank you very much.

Love these prescriptions! It is cool to see a bit of history. I can't wait to put them in a frame & display them. Came fast, packaged well.

I used these as part of a Christmas gift for my father, who does mixed-media art and uses a lot of ephemera in his paintings. They were perfect and arrived so quickly I couldn't believe it!
