Arrived in great shape and as described. I was lucky that my mother kept my Barbie's dressed well and now it's my turn to do the same for my grand-daughter. Arrived in great shape and as described.

Strange Notions - Vintage Rescue, Art and Inspiration
...Welcome to my Strange Notions. I adore junk and I am an admitted hunter and gatherer. My favorite styles are vintage altered art, the "Somerset" look and steampunk style. I love to make things and I love (maybe even more!) hunting down the bits and pieces that are waiting to be rescued and given new purpose. I gather much faster than I make so I am delighted to offer up a share of my treasures to the like-minded folks who embrace the vision and see something where others see nothing.
If you would like to follow along on my adventures there is a link to my blog below.
It is my heart's desire that my shop inspires your next great thing! I hope you and your muse will enjoy your visit here.
Around the web
I try to describe every item as accurately as possible. Since most of the items I sell are vintage, they are sold as-is.
Inspiration Kits: My Inspiration Kits contain all original materials. There are no photocopies unless specifically noted. Nothing is permanently attached to anything else. Everything in my kits is intended to be repurposed into your own artwork. Vintage paper is ephemeral by nature and some pieces may be fragile.
Vintage Patterns: I do not iron the pattern pieces. I believe it accelerates the deterioration of the paper so they are in "as found" condition.
Colors: I make every effort to accurately photograph everything I list but due to differences in monitors actual colors may differ slightly.
Copyright Considerations: I make no claims regarding the copyright status of anything in my shop. I do strive to select items that are beyond copyright limits but I make no guarantees to that effect. I retain all rights to the photos used in my Etsy listings.

Accepted payment methods
- Accepts Etsy gift cards
I am happy to combine shipping. My "with another item" does not always reflect the accurate amount because my items vary so much. It will never be MORE than the amount shown but it may be less and I always refund if the difference is more than $1.00. If you don't want to wait for a refund just convo me your zip code or country and I will be happy to set up a reserved listing with the accurate postage.
I re-use boxes and packing material whenever possible because I think it is the right thing to do.
Insurance is optional at Buyer’s expense. If you would like insurance let me know prior to paying and I will update your invoice. Seller is not responsible if uninsured items are damaged or lost during shipping.
A NOTE FOR INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS…
If your location is not listed please contact me for a shipping quote. Import duties, taxes and charges will not be included in the item price or shipping charges. These charges are the Buyer’s responsibility. I do not mark merchandise values below value or mark items as gifts. US and international government regulations prohibit this practice.
