A gift within a card: OOAK vintage hankies & more

Top shop for gifts.

Buyers bought gifts from this shop and gave them 5-star reviews!

Announcement    HUGE SHOP SALE. All cards have been drastically reduced in price. Shipping on all cards is 1.50, and .50 for each additional card. I am phasing out of hankie cards, and moving into a different area of sales. (Cards will be sold "as is", and the tags that are attached will not be customized as is the past) Enjoy browsing and stocking up! <3

Bolsters Mills Stationery grew out of a love for antique hankies and sewing notions. Every hanky that goes onto a card of mine is true vintage, unless otherwise stated in the description or title. The buttons are all antique or vintage, that have come from the 1900s-1950s.

All cards are 5 x 7, blank inside for you to pen a special message, and come with a matching envelope inside of a cellophane sleeve. I make every attempt to choose hankies that are blemish-free, and free of any staining or holes (if they are "imperfect", I will disclose their condition in the listing), Sometimes one may get away from me, but I always will replace the hankie if that is the case.

These cards are assembled in a smoke-free, pet-free environment :)

If A Hanky Could Talk...

Bolsters Mills Stationery grew out of a love to preserve vintage and antique linens; to preserve their beauty and timelessness in a new way. Starting with a stash of antique hankies, these greetings were fashioned and sent to admiring friends who encouraged me to share them with others.

I love looking at a hankie and wondering what its story could be; who carried it, and what their lives must have been like: was it a girlfriend of a soldier at war who would dab her tears as she thought of how she missed him? Was it a mom who was sitting in the front pew of the church at her beloved daughter's wedding? Or ~ was it a gift from a husband to his wife on their wedding anniversary?

When a bride contacts me to do favors for her bridal tea or wedding, I love the challenge of coming up with a color scheme that will not only compliment what she is thinking about, but help her tell a story to her guests.

Creative moms planning their child's baptism or first birthday, always seem to love what the end result is.

Keepsakes are still in vogue, and hankies are a special way to capture that part of the past. A hanky still can bring about that longing for the simple life.

I continue to be captivated by what once was… and what can be!

Thank you for your interest in my shop. I do custom cards for brides, baby showers, birthday parties and other special occasions. Please feel free to convo me with any requests. Tags and sentiments can be changed upon your request.

New cards are listed weekly. I do not hold or save any cards for customers unless previous arrangements are made that BOTH parties agree to in advance. Once a card is paid for, it is purchased and taken out of my shop. I will then do any changes you would like to the card.

All of my hankies are O O A K vintage. I make no attempt to alter them in anyway. I am sorry, but I DO NOT DO EMBROIDERY.

I gently launder and iron all hankies (if they have not already been through that process) before they are assembled in my cards.

I will always strive to sell the most true vintage hankies, that are blemish free, no tears, holes, rips, or marks of any kind. IF there is a flaw in the hankie, I will put that in the description. If you are unsatisfied for any reason, I will EXCHANGE the HANKIE for another.

My cards are assembled in a pet-free & smoke free environment.

I can do custom cards. I can make a tag to say anything (within so many characters.) Please feel free to convo me with any requests :)
