Finally, after much deliberating on my part.....our fabulous new business cards have arrived, well actually there are 11 different ones. We all loved the swap card business cards but it was becoming difficult to source so many great cards and it took hours to put stickers on the back of them all. So our customers don't miss out on the fun of picking out their favourite we have decided to print 11 different cards. All the images are from our collection of trade cards from the 1880-1890s and our post card stash, mostly from 1905-1915. To celebrate their arrival I have done some shots of new stock with each card in the collection. You may notice there is only 10, unfortunately I ran out of light and battery power so I will post it next time.
So you can celebrate with us we are having our first give away competition, yayyyy!
Simply post a comment about which is your favourite card and the first three will receive a lovely gift of co ordinated goodies to complement their choice of card.
We will announce the winners in the next post.
To complement our lovely icy aqua velvet ribbon I have grouped together vintage aqua Swiss straw braid, vintage silk and velvet leaves and some of our lovely new silk blooms.
We have so many lovely shades of French blues and vanilla at the moment, lots of navy too which is fortunate as it seems navy is going to be big this spring. This collection includes more divine vintage Swiss braids, a silk and organza rose, a lovely delicate rose in the loveliest shade of bluish grey organza, and of course my new favourite Dior blue vintage silk leaves.
More lovely blousey silk flowers and some antique Belgian linen threads.
This handsome devil is accompanied by pinky mauve silk and organza roses and a lovely bunch of pink and burgundy silk blossoms.
These pretty vintage Swiss braids are a little over exposed, apologies I was rushing to finish before I ran out of light and power, they are actually lovely shades of yellow a little like pale corn. They are complemented by a black silk and organza rose.
Two gorgeous new fabrics from Moda's recently released Grace range.
More silky blooms with pretty lilac coloured vintage velvet ribbon.
Light upholstery weight French toile de jouy also available in blue and black, and at the top of the picture is Indian hand printed cotton, similar to lawn, perfect for summer dresses or sleepwear.
Prettiest shades of vintage pink rayon ribbons dating from 1930s-1960s including the new roll in mauvey pink called Heliotrope, second from the left. We stock a large range of antique, vintage and new ribbons, including Belle Epoch French silk ribbons, early to mid 20th century French rayon ribbons, up to 15cm wide and a select range of lovely contemporary ribbons.
Have fun choosing!!
