OK, a quick shopping trip yesterday won me these treasures! The very cool vintage box of Fairy Tale film strips complete with records which tell the stories,
diary from 1902 ( many entries but also some stretches where the woman didn't write... but there's also a ledger in the back listing costs of things which is so interesting! ) Isn't her writing gorgeous? The book is in excellent condition with a tight spine. I was shocked when I realized the book was over 100 years old! Oh, and get this... this woman had a daughter with the same name I had chosen if I'd had a girl! Clare Elizabeth! What are the chances?
Anyway, I also got all these cool laces, trims, ribbons, etc... many retro, many sparkly, and as you can see, some very cool vintage pieces. The bright colors remind me of "Day of the dead". I'm thinking of selling this stuff... although I might have to get a snippet of each of the vintage trims cuz they are so gorgeous!
any thoughts? My only concern with the Film strip box of goodies, great for altering, is the weight and size would be sufficient postage costs, I'm thinkin'. Of course, if someone didn't care about the box, they just wanted the canisters of films and records for altering, then maybe postage wouldn't be an issue. What do you guys think?
