These beautiful vintage handkerchiefs would make very special gifts for the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom.
From 1947 until about 1955, SRG made miniature metal dinosaurs for the natural history museum shop market. These cool vintage toys are a throwback to a time before plastics toys became the norm. Get one of these T-Rex before the listing goes extinct.

About

Vintage Librarian

A librarian by training, I naturally love the process of acquiring, cataloging, and making things accessible to those who need or want them.

At the beginning of the "Great Recession," I lost my long-time librarian job and was tossed out into the great sea of the unemployed. After a long fruitless job search, it became crystal clear to me that I would have to make my own way in the world. But how, what, where?

I knew I wanted to do something interesting and engaging on many levels. I wanted the flexibility to be involved in my young daughter's life -- the time to volunteer in her school, shepherd her love of learning, ferry her to dance & piano, make nutritious dinners -- all the things I couldn't do while I had been working full-time with a dreadfully long commute.

Looking around me, I saw my knitting and crochet work. I saw my collections of books, textiles, decorative items, and thought, "Could there be a business here?" And so, my Etsy experience began.

Some see dust, rust, and torn pages. I see history, and the potential to use old things in new ways. I love to uncover the stories of the items I carefully collect & curate for my shop.

If you are looking for something special, let me know and I'll keep my eye out for it.

I'm also long-time practitioner of tai chi chuan, and teach the martial art at a local kung fu academy & YMCA.
