Happy with this little gem. After taking the 'older' purse off and cleaning the frame, it's a very nice piece. Thanks for the quick delivery! Haven't decided yet what kind of pattern or color it calls for. Will send a pic when it's brought back to life! Thanks again - Pam

About

Love of Paper and History can Fill a House...or a Website!

When I started attending auctions regularly about 20 years ago, I noticed I was always drawn to documents, old greeting cards, and ephemera of any kind. Antique valentines drew me like a magnet, and well as anything Christmas. I used that big auction site that is a household word, and had some success, but it wasn't until I discovered Etsy, that I really found my niche! I learned that while I have a good eye for great graphics and interesting items, I truly don't know what to do with them. It is a joy to supply all your Etsy artisans with vintage and antique paper items to use in your craft projects, scrapbooking or digital endeavors. It is not all I sell, as I love jewelry, and am a sucker for vintage figurines, particularly Lefton, and particularly Christmas. It has given me great pleasure to unite some of you with a memory, and restore something lost. You can't imagine the number of times people have told me "I had this when I was little, and lost it" or "When I was a kid we had a fire, and this was destroyed." The stories sometimes are funny, and sometimes bring a tear. Old books,especially wonderfully illustrated books "speak" to me too. So browse my shop, and feel free to ask questions, or inquire about something you are looking for!

    Born and raised in New York, I lived in St. Louis for 16 years before I met the above wonderful man who was raising 3 kids alone in the middle of nowhere! 22 years later, here we are, and I am able to work from home, and indulge in my antiquing!

    Steve and I live in in a rural community. I was a city girl, and was raised by antique dealers. Moving here, it was easy to find auctions, flea markets and fairs that yield ephemera of all kinds. Greeting cards are my favorite and I pass them on!
