This is a great booklet from 1943--a real heirloom! It contains patterns (you'll have to trace and enlarge them) and instructions for 71 gifts you sew yourself. Produced at the height of WWII, it is a reflection of the time, with great period photos. Gift categories include Romantic Notions for the Bride-to-Be, Home on the Range (gift aprons), Home Companions, Leisure moments, Nursery Lines, Company Manners (gift linens), Selected for Service, Knockout Props (for teenagers), Small Talk (for tots and children), and Prize Packages (unusual ways to wrap and decorate gifts). This is a special reimberance of times gone by as well as a reminder of days when people made things themselves or did without.
I ship via the U.S. Postal Service, and normally only ship domestically. However, if you are an international buyer, please convo me for shipping rates on an item-by-item basis. Domestically, I ship First Class (under 13 oz) whenever possible and use Flat Rating Shipping for larger items. If you have other preferences, let me know. I'll let you know when your purchase ships and provide you with the tracking number. I'd like to know when the item arrives at your end, too.
I will always look for the most reasonable shipping option that the USPS can provide. I do not use FedEx or UPS. I will gladly combine shipping to save you money.
I prefer PayPal because it's so simple. If that's a problem for you, ask and I'm sure we can work something out. I expect payment within 48 hours of your purchase. If there is any problem, contact me.
If you live in Texas, I have to charge sales tax. Sorry, but it helps pay for street lights.
If you end up not liking something you've bought from me, I will take it back as long as it is in the original condition. Please contact me so we can arrange a refund (less a 20% restocking fee to cover my shipping materials.)
Returns & exchanges
I try very hard to get all the descriptions as accurate and complete as I can. If the item is not as described, I'll be happy to work with you on a return/refund or exchange. After all, I want you to come visit again!
Unless the shipment is insured, I cannot be responsible for any losses or damages during shipment.
Convo me with any special requests and let's see what beautiful things we can create!
