We just got back from a buying trip to New England where we found some interesting items for antique collectors and crafters both. Our best finds were an assortment of ephemera. Wonderful miniature books and chapbooks, old schmaltzy valentines, an old penmanship book and handwriting workbook, some interesting WW2 envelopes and an collection of 1940s holiday telegram blanks.
|WW2 Envelopes -- some with censorship stamps|
|Fantastic Telegram Forms for a Variety of Holidays|
|Penmanship Book and a Handwriting Workbook|
|Old Valentines -- including unused and postcards too|
In addition to the ephemera, we found a number of other treasures.
|This is a pair of Grapevine Molds|
|Porcelain Paint Powders in Vials|
|Early 1900s Ribbon Medals -- mostly double sided with celluloid images|
|A Couple of Beautiful Italian Religious Triptychs|
This old rubber stamp set is very complete and large. It includes letters and numbers, plus a whole lot of words and images. Alas, this is going in Susan's studio. You'll see these vintage images on cards and tags she makes. Just wanted to share it with you.
