About

Reviving a past for the present and future generations.

I was shopping in an antique store in Knoxville, TN and stumbled across these beautiful sewing patterns from the 60s that had never been used. I thought about what a shame it was that these gorgeous patterns never had the chance to be used and then I thought about Etsy. And it started from there...

Dear buyers,

I do my best to keep the planet clean by staying green. I do not print out copies of receipts nor do I buy cardboard fillers. Instead I let you look at the online receipt and I cut up cardboard boxes in my house, such as cereal boxes, the strengthen my packages.

Thank you for helping me keep our planet green!

Frequently asked questions
Do you buy vintage items?

I sure do! I am always looking for 1900-1960’s clothing and sewing patterns. I will buy in any condition but please be very descriptive about the condition and provide clean and clear photographs.

Can you make me a dress or skirt from your patterns?

At this time I do not take custom orders. Please stay tuned because that may change soon.

Gift wrapping and packaging

If this is a gift I am happy to do wrapping in colorful tissue paper for free. However, if you would like a more hefty wrapping system (bows, wrapping paper and box) please know that there will be an extra fee for that service. You will need to start a conversation with me so I can create a custom wrapping listing for you to purchase.
