Treasures from Paris

We are incurable treasure hunters. We hunt wherever we go for ideas, inspiration and goodies! You would expect to find treasures in Paris ... and we did. Here's some of our finds that we brought back for you.
Hand-decorated boxes with French soap labels and silk ribbons.
Vintage favor and candy boxes.
Vintage French trim on original bolts.
Belgian decorated telegrams from 1942
Vintage German die-cut sheet.
Vintage embroidery pattern ink roller.
Selection of early 1900s folk art boxes, mini frames and a carved cross with a stanhope.
Selection of old miniature books.
My personal favorite is this tiny diary/journal kept by a lady in 1858!
She had the tiniest, neatest handwriting I have ever seen.
It is just a really wonderful historical record. Wish I read French.
We are just cataloging these items and will have them in the shop shortly, and some of them on-line as well. Contact us if you are interested in any of them.
