I am in my seventies therefore; I have been collecting for a long time. I also make jewelry and have another Etsy shop with my own creations and jewelry making supplies. Other shop is lkcreativedesigns.etsy.com

I enjoyed sewing and in my teens would sew late into the night. I am a fifth generation seamstress and made wedding dresses in the 1960s. I have a lot of dress patterns and sewing notions.

Some of my collections are old books. One of my favors books is “The Popular Cyclopedia of Useful Knowledge” written in 1888.

My butter knife collection has expanded to include spoons and forks.

In this shop you will find vintage patterns, rick rack, thread, vintage trim, linens, handkerchiefs, cup and saucer sets, vintage spoons, forks, and butter knives, old books, marbles, old pipes and dolls.

I love to search for vintage treasures at my mother’s house, garage sales, estate sales, estate auctions. If you collect something you do not see, let me know and I will add it to my search list when I go looking for vintage treasures.
