How Rose Petal Curiosity Shop Grows
At this time we feel the need to apologize to you for the inconvenience that navigating our shop may cause you. Etsy has had us in a "little test" mode for optimizing shopping experiences as well as supposedly enabling shop owners to work more efficiently to bring you our latest merchandise. Many shop owners are frustrated with the process as it has gone on for months now. We hope you understand that we have no control over this and ask for your continued patience and feedback. Feedback can be sent to us directly at rosepetalresources at yahoo.com or here https://www.etsy.com/help/contact?ref=help_contact. Sincere thanks!
Our story is one that might sound familiar to you. We are retired and loving it. We spend much of our time shopping and researching items to fill our vintage shelves. But where does all the time go? There is so much to learn about. Our grandchildren visit us often and in the process of running our shop we find time to teach them about the important things in life. We have an old soul, loving things of the past that remind us of life when the pace was slower. The beauty is, our work of love keeps us young.
Currently we are listing vintage printed patterns from the 1930s to 1960s. These patterns are from Simplicity, McCall, Butterick and Lister. This stash was found with uncut and factory folded patterns including hats, skirts, dresses, embroidery transfer and more.. My hubby likes to tell me the story about the time he audited an old general store in a dusty town in Texas. It was in the mid 1960s and this store had hundreds of McCall patterns from the 1940s thru the 1960s. The town was so small that in his wisdom he valued the patterns at zero. I wish I knew what I know now about patterns. With the popularity of the styles being resurrected, I would have bought everyone one of them.
We've also been quite fortunate to have acquired an assortment of demitasse cups and saucers from a previous collector that lived in Bogota, Columbia. After carefully cleaning, photographing and then researching these little beauties, they are finally ready for Rose Petal Curiosity Shop shelves. We have many brands from all over the world, with new listings weekly.
Our original passion, women's powder compact, pill boxes and sweater guard clips continues as we constantly find new ones that take our breath away.
Look for many more gifts and goodies coming to you such as Christian Dior clothing, scarves and jewelry,
Thanks for taking the time to read about us and for strolling through the "virtually vintage" and "nostalgically new" gifts we bring to you. Dave and I love filling our curiosity shop with unique gifts that are hard to find. We are so delighted when a customer takes the time to write us a note about how happy they are with their purchase or how happy it made the person they bought it for. Each item is carefully and uniquely packaged before mailing. We pride ourselves in exceptional service and fast shipping (we ship everyday).
Our hope is that something in our curiosity shop will trigger a fond memory in your heart that you’ll want, or need to share with that special friend or loved one in your life.
