So here we go with the previews of the cool vintage finds going up at Mercantile tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. central time!
First up is this sweet little Wedding crafting kit which includes a full package of vintage Dennison Wedding Seals. . .
These were an amazing find! I have been holding onto them for several months as I thought they would fit best for July 4th. They are original Independent Order of Forrester's Medals, in their original envelopes from 1907. They are in pristine condition. The photo shows the front and back views and the pin at the top is removable. If you have the heart to do it, there are so many pieces of this that would work great for jewelry/mixed media - the ribbon, the pin, the medal disc, the bouillon. They are so beautiful. I typically see these in cases when shopping, for $60 to $80 each. I got a rather large quantity of them at once and got a good deal so I am selling them for $19.99 each. . .
Our 2011 July 4th Vintage Crafting Kit has some great items as you will see, but the best are these early political lapel pins made from tin and thin plastic. . .
This is a peek at the tiny travel book kit I put together with some fun vintage finds and favorite JBS products. . .
