And now I get to share some of the goodies I acquired last month.
I know that I didn't post a June Pattern Showcase, and right now, quite frankly, I forget what I bought in June! I actually don't think I got many, if any patterns that month. I've been on a kick of getting goodies for the apartment. And yes, I'm still waiting to hear back on my couch.
|This is a lovely novelty WWII postcard. Gotta love these!|
I also got a repro WWII poster. Black propaganda material from that time is rare, and if I can find it, I try to get it. So when someone alerted me to this 8x10 ORIGINAL pin up of a black nurse, I jumped on it! Its on its way to me as I type.
I also added some bridge score cards (the lower right) to my blackface collection. As well as this bank. I thought it was clever being a peanut butter jar. You fill it with pennies (brown haha) and you get a blackface character all over again.
I also got this early 40s string holder, but it turns out she was a reproduction, so I messaged the seller and got her for a fraction of the original price.
This is great segue to sewing related material.
|Got these pieces at the Rose Bowl flea market.|
These fabrics I bought from Jo Ann's. *sigh* They are not the best, but I needed material for clothes for Camp Hollywood, and I didn't have time to go downtown. They are all 100% cotton.
Also, I spotted this 30s Excella sign on eBay a few weeks ago but the seller wanted an obscene amount for it. I messaged them and got it for a decent price, but not a bargain. Now I have three of these cardboard signs. I think that constitutes a collection. I still have to get these two framed.
Last but not least I got this carafe set from some friends for my housewarming. They had it that entire time and at Camp Hollywood I was FINALLY able to get it from them. Isn't it great! Its totally 50s/60s and the carafe is branded pyrex. SUPER CUTE and perfect on my home bar :)
Oh, and I did buy ONE pattern:
Have a great day!!
