These were shipped quickly and arrived quickly. I wish there had been a description of the finish; I did not expect that they would be so shiny. To be fair, that was my own problem...

About

Seed Packet Labels and Burlap Sacks

David and I have worked together as vintage traders for twelve years. We started by sourcing vintage French country items in France to sell at antiques fairs in England.

Eight years ago, we found a stash of vintage French seed packets and seed packet labels in an old seed merchants. This prompted us to launch our own website. The seed packet labels were featured in the Emporium/Shopping pages of Country Living magazine in England and Better Homes and Gardens in the U.S.A. as well as other publications.

That same summer eight years ago, we also found the burlap Puy Grain and Puy Lentil sacks originating from the Fournier Bastide mill that started a major trend for decorating with burlap. We are considered to be a leading source for these original, highly decorative grain and flour sacks.

In February 2010 we joined the Etsy community. Our business has evolved since and we now have two Etsy shops. simplyfrenchvintage, which is our original shop, and BurlapGrainSacks.

Other than the seed packet labels, which remain enduringly popular, our offer changes. One thing that never changes though is that we only sell the real deal. There is a place in the market for reproductions, and many of these are done well, but our heart is in searching out true pieces.

As a footnote, we do still sell at antiques fairs in England. The internet is wonderful but nothing beats meeting our customers face to face. If you would like to know when we will next be selling at I.A.C.F. Ardingly or Sunbury Antiques Market (both at locations on the outskirts of London) please send me a convo.
