I have always loved vintage buttons on their original cards, but lately I've become interested in all types of notions and craft supplies in their original packaging. Here are a few examples of items I have acquired recently...
This is a vintage advertising pinkeep that was given to me by the fabulous Kimberlee Edgar of Edgar and Edgar. If you haven't heard of her, I suggest you visit her blog, and take a look at her "House of Edgar" and "Office of Edgar" photos. She has some extraordinary collections, including taxidermy, creepy dolls, Santos crowns, and antique costumes. You will be amazed!
Notions notions notions.
Not just any sequins, but fancy ones! Because of my business name, I love finding anything that says "Fancy" or "Fancy Goods" on it.
This is a wrapper for some vintage crepe paper, purchased from the Etsy store of the above mentioned Kimberlee Edgar.
This is the backside of the crepe paper wrapper, showing that you can make yourself a crepe paper gown. Oh my!
More crepe paper. Don't you love the label? Again, it is from Kimberlee Edgar's Etsy shop. She just has one listing for the paper, and you have to convo her about what colors you want, and if you're looking for a specific brand. She has lots of it though!
I have a few more "original packaging" items on their way from another Etsy seller. I will be sure to post photos when I receive them.
