Item details

What gorgeous shopping bags these are!

Present that fabulous gift, display on a shelf or shop for little treasures.....these bags are meant to be shown!

Purchased in the late 80s, I treasured these for a long time, kept them stored away and never used them!

On a shiny coated paper with a gorgeous black ground are reproductions of 19th Century Danish paintings...

~ The still life of flowers in a basket at left (and picture 2), is from a painting "Romantic Flowers" by Johan Laurentz Jenson 1800-1856
Size is: 17 1/2" wide x 14" tall x 4" wide

~ The floral painting reproduction at right (and picture 3), is from the original by Christine Lovmand Dunmore 1803-1872
Size is: 17" wide x 13" tall x 4" wide.

There is an inscription on the bottom of this bag by Hans Christian Andersen which reads:
"It is not enough just to live, one must also have Sunshine, Freedom and a little Flower"

You may if you wish to make them even more elegant, take the cord handles out and substitute a beautiful ribbon!

Price is for BOTH.

Note: Tissue is not included.


Mint, unused. Cords intact.


Please advise me BEFORE purchasing if you wish a particular form of shipping or to ship with another item, as different items are of different sizes. I will adjust shipping charges based upon your location and/or refund any extra over $1.

Estimated Shipping
Shipping to
Zip or postal code

Please be sure to have an accurate USPS address up to date with both Paypal and Etsy. If an item you purchase is returned to me as undelivered, I will re-send upon your payment of additional postage charges.

Postage is as accurate as possible but if I cannot pack item(s) up beforehand the best estimate is listed. Please request updated shipping charges before you check out if purchasing more than one item as no 2 items are same size and weight. If there is an overage in shipping charges, I promptly refund overages in postage over $1.00 no later than the next day or or so after purchase.

I do not add extra for shipping supplies, also try to reuse them and I do NOT use peanuts for packing as they are too messy and items move around having the potential to break.

Some large or bulky items I may ship via Standard/Parcel Post and I insure breakable items as this form of shipment allows for mishandling. This is also a slightly slower form of shipment too, so please be aware that it may take a bit longer to arrive.

INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMS: Customs charges are not added to your purchase by this shop, but by your country and are therefore paid by you when applicable. Please check with your postal/customs service before your purchase if you are concerned an item may have a customs charge.

Should you not receive your purchase in a timely manner as would be customary for your country, please check with your customs service as they may be holding it for your pick-up.


Merchandise will be shipped WITHIN 2 days of payment unless there is a holiday weekend.

I will reserve an item or 2 but it is important to provide me with a time frame for reserving the item before I will do so. I will reserve something unpaid for a week or a mutually agreed upon time frame. Items not purchased will be taken off reserve and made available for sale again.

Reasonable requests for a discount are considered and sometimes accepted for items, but a discount cannot then be combined with a payment/layaway plan and must therefore be paid in full once the offer is accepted.

No further discounts will be accepted on items that already have price reductions.

There are certain high value items for which I will accept a layaway payment plan. If we mutually agree on a layaway payment plan, the payments must be made within a day or 2 of the dates due (with allowances made for time zone differences) and I will invoice you for each payment due through Paypal. If you anticipate a temporary delay, please contact me so we may work it out. I may have to cancel the sale and refund payments already made less 20%, if payments are not made on an agreed upon schedule.

NEW YORK BUYERS.....I must assess 8% Sales Tax for New York State and New York City at 8.875%.

Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
As I do not accept returns on items due to buyer's remorse, if there is an issue with something you have purchased, please inform me of the fact BEFORE you leave a review/feedback....I'm sure it can be worked out to both our satisfaction!

Custom made items are not exchangeable, returnable or refundable, as these items will be made to your own specifications.

I try to describe each item accurately, have clear pictures, list all measurements and mention anything that would be a flaw, so should you be concerned about a particular color or any other issue, please contact me PRIOR to purchase. If there is the rare issue that I have missed, it is not due to dishonesty, but having less than perfect vision!

I also take the utmost care and always pack each item with sufficient padding and in plastic for protection inside the box to avoid breakage or getting wet. Outside of one small item, I have not had any breakage of numerous very fragile items that I have shipped over the years.

Additional policies

For Damages:
If an item was damaged or lost from its packaging in shipping, I must take it up with the carrier.
PLEASE keep all packaging materials and provide me with a photo of the broken/damaged item along with a photo of the original packing material as proof for a claim.

All items are from a smoke-free environment.
