Friday Morning Market, Ebay and Amazon
This week I got lots of stuff! So I thought I'd combine them all in one post.
First I got an order in from eBay, from a seller that sells vintage glass jewelry and buttons from the Gablonz glass region. These necklaces where dirt cheap.
My order came in a cute little box and was very well and cutely packed.
I bought three necklaces and a set of simple navy blue glass buttons. The set of self-shank buttons (also navy) in the seal bag where a surprise!
|Dated ca 1950s|
|Undated, probably not very old.|
|Dated pre 1948|
So cute! The dye comes in a glass tube with a cork stopper and comes with instructions.
Then, again from eBay, I got this pattern, Simplicity 4987, from vintage4me2
I ordered two books from amazon 3 weeks ago; Gertie's New Book For Better Sewing, and Vintage Swimwear by Sarah Kennedy. The swimwear book has not been delivered yet, but I was certainly happy with Gertie's book finally being sent ahead. I have browsed through it a bit and am already excited about the topics she addresses. I can't wait to make the Tiki variation of one of the dress patterns.
And ofcourse, my weekly friday morning market purchase. I got two packs of shampoo, two packs of black snaps and 4 pieces of blue fabric from a "50 cents a piece" pile. And a skirt marker!
According to an online database the Castella shampoo was produced from 1940 to 1968.

I also finished Butterick 4919, so I will give an update on that soon!
