I want to make buying from me as easy as possible, and therefore I am listing everything in my Etsy shop now. Easier to add the different shipping costs, no chance of me not removing a bought item and somebody else trying to buy it, etc etc. So from time to time I will use this blog to show you the new things I have listed, to keep you up to date.

Quick update

Well, it had to happen of course, life has a habit of interfering with the best laid plans. Sick hubby, middle son's 30th birthday, baby sitting, rotten weather, they all contributed. Couldn't get any new listings done. Sob sob. Hopefully tomorrow I will be able to, although now youngest son, who still lives at home, is coming down with the same rotten cold which floored hubby.

So here are just a few pics of what I did manage to photograph, and what will eventually appear in the shop -













Until tomorrow, hopefully, lol. Toodlepip xxx

Lace bundles

I listed three collections of lace in my Etsy shop today. They are all unused old stock with their original labels and these labelled bundles are becoming so rare at the brocantes. They meant for your lace collections or vintage sewing item collections and should just be part of your vintage sewing basket display. It would be a shame to use the lace and ruin the lovely old labels.

Collection 1 -




Collection 2 -




Collection 3 -
