Want to buy some vintage patterns?
Update 9/25/09: I bit off more than I can chew. It’s more than I can handle. I’ll be selling these by the box. Sorry friends! More details are here.
This has been a most unproductive week and I can’t say why. I feel like I haven’t gotten a thing done and no posts out of it to boot. Again, I’m trying to get rid of stuff, specifically boxes of vintage patterns. I accumulated these when I was addicted to estate sales. I’m happily recovered from the addiction but still dealing with the vestiges of my former affliction. It takes forever to photograph and sort these things, anyone have any ideas of how to get rid of them in quantity? I don’t think I’m inclined to list them singly on ebay. I’ve uploaded photos of the first box in a web album if you want to take a look.This particular lot has an assortment of collectibles like slippers, hats, aprons and toys.
For now, I’m going to try to sell them like this. You put a price on whichever ones you like and email me the style number and brand. No reasonable offer refused. Obviously I can’t sell the collectibles for less than the cost of a cup of coffee but you may be surprised at what I’d take because these really need a home where they’ll be loved and appreciated. This particular lot was from a lady who was fastidious about keeping the patterns intact, with no pieces missing and folding them up neatly (so you know I didn’t get my mitts on them). Some I’ll give away if you order some but you won’t know which those are. Then again, if you happen to be someone who’s donated to support the site, I may not accept money from you at all and just send you stuff so it doesn’t hurt to ask.
If you happen to know someone who buys lots of these, let me know? I’d be happier to sell them by the box. Lastly, it’s like anything around here. If it’s not a square deal for you and you’re dissatisfied, send it back with no hassle.
