Welcome to The GYPSY MADONNA Collection! May I offer.....
AGE: C.1950 or so
ITEM: I have a friend in France who sends me French religious items all the time. This last time I received a package from her, she included this ribbon flower because I was asking about ribbon. Now I know that the center blue floral is from the 1950s as well as the pink pleated ribbon but the side pink buds appear to be ombre ribbon from the 1930s. So whether she made this piece or found it (like she said) I just don't know. There is crinoline to the back and thread and there has been no glue involved. Oh, and there are yellow sugar pips to the center of the blue floral. The piece could be placed on any item that would not need washing - the pips would not survive the process.
CONDITION: Excellent - very clean I have got to admit.
SIZE: 2" x 3/4" approx.
FINAL COMMENTS: I only have the one! It sure would look pretty on a barrette or a doll's hat or on a doll's dress.
I ship as soon as I can, usually 1-2 days within the purchase date. Sometimes there are delays but not many - usually family and the weather are the main culprits.
Payment methods accepted: Paypal (of course), cheques/checks, money orders and yes, I can do layaway. Just ask about my terms.

The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:
Custom or personalized orders
Perishable products (like food or flowers)
Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Conditions of return
Buyers are responsible for return shipping costs. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value.
Additional return information
Not happy? Just doesn't work for you? Just send it back and I will offer a full refund on the purchase price only. Layaway pieces are handled a little differently - usually I apply a 15% restocking fee if the item has been "on hold" for a very long time. Most dealers do "no refunds" on either the deposits or layaway itself. I think this a little harsh as you never know what is going to crop up in the way of an emergency and sometimes a person does have to hold onto their money due to such a situation.
Right now, I don't really accept custom orders but if you e-mail me, and I have the time, I might just be able to accommodate your request!
