History

Happy sunday to you. I know a few kind bloggers have been posting about my Estate sale boxes and I thank them for being so sweet. I also thank them for finding the boxes new homes, as there is no doubt that all the coverage has increased sales. If you were one of the purchasers I thought I would tell a little more on the boxes history.

All the items are a mixture of vintage and new haberdashery that I have collected over the last 10 years. From craft shows, craft shops, foreign travel (paris, prague,USA), antique stores some bits I inherited from my great grandmothers and great aunts sewing boxes. All I have treasured with such a passion I didn't know how to finally decide what to use them for.

I have always dreamed of owning my own haberdashery where I could help others choose the perfect things for their projects. So when I discovered Etsy I knew I just had to share. It makes me so happy to know a box of my treasures has made someone else's day, and that with fresh new eyes and vision they will create what I couldn't.

And honestly... your photos just have me so green with envy too! They just make you want to reach out and pick things up to look at them. Brilliant!

Any chance you might be interested in selling a packet of those fabulous postage stamps?
