Big Bag O' Vintage from Mint Velvet

This past weekend was a busy one. THE MAN was off to a poker weekend in Pennsylvania that involved tire chains & offroading while THE BOY was at a sleepover, so Lexi and I planned our own fun. 

That fun involved a trip to Mint Velvet Vintage on Market Street in Corning. I was glad that Kristy had talked us into taking a stroll around the store 'cause I found this lovely bag of goodies for $10!

I was mostly interested in the foliage, numbers, and flowers. The game cards & postcards made me really happy too!

Not sure what I'll do with the wrapping paper, but it made me smile because I think my Gram used at least a couple of these to wrap birthday presents for me when I was young. 

TOTALLY not sure what I'll do with these! Anyone see these before?

Wish me luck! I am back with a  layout tomorrow that I used a green game card just sprinkling in the vintage! 

A quick shout out to Connie Mercer who is really good at vintage & who inspired me to grab an entire bag of goodies to play with!

Happy Monday!


  1. Oh you have scored some treasures there.. not sure but are the appliques what you iron on shirts or something similiar?? and then sew around the edge to keep them on.. I used to do that on t-shirts when my kids were younger... that seems like a long time ago now.....

  2. Goodness! No idea. Before my time, for sure....but gee. Talk about RETRO. You got a bag load of it. ENJOY!!!!

  3. Yes pretty awesome stuff- you will bring the beauty out for sure . Thanks for the mention :):) cm

  4. SCORE!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm drooling over the ephemera and I was just gifted some vintage wrapping and ribbon too. I don't have a clue what I'll use it for, but just having it is a wonderful feeling.
    Thanks for the sneak peek!


I LOVE comments. Come on. Leave me one. They make me smile!
