A Few of my Favorite [Vintage] Things ... in Ye Merry Old Etsy Shoppe

Jan 16, 2011 4 comments
I've finally gotten to the cleaning, the polishing, the brushing, the matting, and the photographing of a handful of new vintage products that are now listed in the American Duchess Boutique on Etsy.

These are the really special things.  A couple of 1930s and 40s shoes, two exquisite silver teapots, and a pair of of truly charming original color bookplates.  But enough of me talking about them, have a look!

  1. That American Rose teapot is GORGEOUS!

  2. Oooh, lovely things and I just bought the gorgeous russet madmen dress for my friend's birthday. Her party is on Friday night so I doubt it will get here on time but it is SO worth waiting for!

  3. LOVE that teapot, it was such a find! Both teapots were so tarnished, and I kindof liked the character of them, but then when polishing them up, oh my, so lovely!

    MrsC - THANK YOU! It won't make it internationally by Friday, coming from the US (or I'd be very surprised), but I will send it priority so hopefully it will arrive quickly. P.S., it looks great with a belt and crinoline underneath (shown in the photos on the Etsy listing).
