I’ve grouped these lovely floral handkerchiefs together because each one has either a black border or a black background! The flowers are colorful and they are even more striking with black. Each hanky is in wonderful condition – no holes or tears.
This is such a neat towel – I originally purchased it to embroider for my linen collection. Please see photo for details – the towel doesn’t require a lot of embroidery because the “private eye” is apparently invisible. Towel has original price tag of 39 cents from S.S. Kresge Co.
Another excellent towel gift set! Still in the original box, there is one bath towel, one hand towel, two washcloths, and one towel ring. Made by Harmony House and distributed by Sears, Roebuck and Co., U.S.A. and Simpson-Sears Limited. Pretty!
This is an interesting item – a “His” and “Hers” towel set still in the original box! Per label, this is “A Lila-Lou Creation” by Cannon. I did not undo the packaging but I assume there are two washcloths since there are two towels. Also included in the box is a saucer and tiny cup marked on bottoms: Hand Painted, J.B. Betson’s China, Japan. Neat!
This is a very collectible item that is difficult to find! Made by Lefton, this is a pink ashtray with an attached pink spaghetti poodle. Super condition with minor wear t the gold color – that’s it! There is a small rough place on edge that is production – has color and glaze – not detrimental. Super collectible!
This is a neat lunchbox! Issued in 1975, this is the Betsey Clark lunchbox – also called Hallmark Kids. Lunchbox is in very good condition with minor color rubs – see photos – there is no thermos. Reference book shows a 1999 value of $60.00
This listing is for an aluminum biscuit or doughnut cutter with red wood handle! The cutter has a round center circle that is left attached to make doughnuts and removed to make biscuits – this center piece is seldom found with the cutter. I have 2 of these cutters available. ***Only 1 available -- the cutter on the right in photos has been sold.***

This is a vintage quilt kit – top, binding, and instructions – to complete a beautiful baby quilt titled “Sweet Dreams”. Quilt is stamped cross-stitch and embroidery, cut size is 42” x 60” with finished size 40” x 58”. This is a “Progress” quilt, no. 1529, and lists the thread requirements, backing, etc. that are needed to complete the quilt.
This listing has 5 unopened packages of nylons – a total of 6 pairs of seamless stockings! There are 2 pairs “Cantrece” stockings, size 9 ½-10, colors are “brown mist” and “blond”. There are 2 pairs “400 needles, 15 denier” and their color is “medium beige”. One package contains 2 pairs of “400 needle, 15 denier” and the color is “neutral beige”. Nice!
I’ve grouped these stockings into one listing – there’s an assortment! There’s one pair of seamless Gaymode Thigh High Stockings, size long, color Suntan. There are 2 pairs seamed stockings, size A, and they’re a dark brown color. Next is a pair of seamless stockings, size 9-9 ½ that I’ve placed in a “Diana” stocking box and last is a pair of Argus seamed nylons, size 10-10 ½, color as shown in photo. Very nice!
This is a lovely baby quilt! It has embroidered kittens and puppies on white squares and is set together with a pink border. Quilt measures 33 ½” x 47 ¼” and is hand stitched with very nice stitching. It has no holes or tears but the seam binding edge is worn – not at all uncommon – it could be easily replaced or enjoyed/displayed as is. It is really nice and I would estimate it to be from the 1950’s.
Made by J. & P. Coats, this is a counted cross-stitch kit titled “Love is Kind”. Never opened, kit contains cotton embroidery floss, gold beads, 14 count ivory Aida, thread holder and instructions. It has a copyright date of 1994.
