Decorets Scrap Die Cut Embossed Gold Foil Birds Doves
A never used, still sealed package of Decorets Imported Paper Fancies from the 1960s. The package header doesn't give the country of origin but I'm certain the diecuts were made in West Germany.

The entire set measures 4 by 3 inches. Ideal for scrapbooking, Christmas ornaments, crafting, decoupage.

Pearls Fun & Fancy 1971 Beaded Jewelry Pattern Booklet
When I was 14-15 years old, I made and sold my own beaded jewelry, mostly crocheted bead ropes and rings. I even had an account with Hatch's Card and Gifts in the local mall, where I'd go replace any sold jewelry every week. The pattern instruction booklet that started me off on my first business venture was this one: Pearls: Fun & Fancy, by Shirley Nowosad. The book is copyrighted 1971 and published by The Royal-Craft Library, Cunningham Art Products. It's 31 pages and has patterns, diagrams, and complete instructions for 35 beaded jewelry items using imitation pearls and other beads.

Also earrings, those funky metallic elastic crochet cluster rings, collars and chokers, an anklet with toe ring, and an ornamental necktie. The booklet is in good vintage condition with no writing or tears.

A practical course for primary and elementary schools, RAPHIA AND REED WEAVING Elizabeth Sanborn Knapp was published in 1920 by Milton Bradley, Springfield MA. The 132-page hardbound book features figures throughout that accompany the text in construction of dozens of projects. Weaving technique is taught, starting with construction paper, then to cardboard and raphia and reeds. Following the third year of study, says the text, the boy is eager and well-fitted to take up bench work, and the girl to be initiated into the cutting and marking of dolls' garments. The book is in Good condition, although ex lib with the usual library markings. The covers show edge/corner/spine end wear. The spine is somewhat discolored. Inside pages show some edge wear, but are complete, readable and utterly fascinating!

Some of our books are ex lib (withdrawn from a library), but unless otherwise noted in our descriptions, these have no library-related damage beyond the usual library markings and card pockets. This book is one of those ORIGINALS! IT'S NOT A REPRINT!
