Description

I am an altered metal pencil box--altered with pages from a very vintage book- about Bobby and Betty!

This chapter was about Bobby and Betty packing their trunks for a trip. Suchandsort loves to collect old books, and then hates to cut them up! This one was 'colored' with crayons a very long time ago, so sns didn't feel too badly about using up the pages~

The book is probably from the 30s- the box has been covered with pages from the same chapter- a vintage 'trunk' key has been attached to the lid of the box, with a tassel of vintage embroidery floss.

The inside lid and bottom of the box has been covered with great green paper, and a little notepad of ink-aged manila tags has been added~ attached with more vintage floss and a vintage button. A vintage green pencil , sharpened at both ends-many years ago- by suchandsort's grampa - who didn't believe in erasers!

Suchandsort had a 'The Little Family' Book fall apart, and of course, she saved the parts! The title piece is attached inside to the lid.

My size is 6.5 inches long, 2.75 inches wide and .75 inches deep and I am protected with 4 coats of decoupage medium.

I will also accept Post Office money orders, and I ask that you contact me immediately after your purchase if you plan to send me a money order, so I'll know when to expect it.

Returns & exchanges

I want you to be happy with your purchase, so I describe everything to the best of my ability. Please ask any questions before you purchase- I do not do returns.

Some items are 'as is', being that they are vintage or 'shabby'. I attempt to describe everything, but if you are unhappy with your purchase, because of breakage, please let me know- otherwise, since my creations are usually rather small, I don't offer refunds, so please read the descriptions carefully!

I attempt to ship packages out the day after payment--my little post office isn't open Saturdays- if there is a problem with shipping, I'll surely let you know asap. I ship USPS and usually ship priority. I will ship to the address on the paypal receipt. If it is a different address, PLEASE let me know in a convo.

Additional policies

If you see something and it is not OOAK - please convo me and I'll do my best to accommodate and please you!

I don't plan to do wholesale, as my items are usually one of a kind/vintage and there are no others! For that reason, I also don't plan to do consignment.
