Vintage items for your art projects

 
Vintage optical lenses




In the late 1800s and early 1900s, optometrists used these lenses for vision testing. Artists have discovered them as great ways to frame little vignettes for pendants, charms and other artistic projects.   All measure just under 1-1/2" in diameter. Designs, metals and lens thicknesses vary. All are antique. Use Ranger's Glossy Accents or JudiKins Diamond Glaze to adhere photos, ephemera and text... and use our ball chain to make pendants! $7.50 each


One vintage optical lens: $7.50

Vintage ephemera package

Vintage ephemera is my favorite material for making collages, adding interest to journal pages, and crafting unique greeting cards. For some projects, we are happy with photocopies, but sometimes you just want the genuine vintage item! 

We have a limited supply of the collage parts shown above. The package includes ephemera such as vintage playing cards, Fostoria certificates from the 1930s, an unused Cherry Blossoms soda label, page from vintage FAA book of aircraft approach diagrams,  lovely foreign text pages, music pages, pages from a 40-year-old postage stamp directory, Bingo card, tickets, oversized robin's egg blue and salmon shipping tags, a vintage practice target, printed inventory tag, plus a few newer items. Every piece is the real thing -- no scans or color copies! 

Ephemera Package 1: more than 35 pieces of vintage goodness:  
$9.95, while they last
