The pattern I have chosen to showcase this week is the 1974 McCall's Antique Quilts heirloom collection 1840-1930. The original price was $1.25 and I purchased it for $1 not much difference in price after 40 years. Once again it was bought at Renningers Mount Dora, but this time from the flea market. It was a lady from South Carolina who wintered in Florida, how wonderful is that.
Another favourite of mine is this four wide winged eagle appliqué quilt. Apparently eagle quilts were also known as Union quilts. All the instructions from start to finish were included as were the eagle appliqué instructions.
Not bad for $1 and with many more years of enjoyment left in it.
Another more recent find was postcards whilst at my daughters at the weekend. What does 20p buy you these days? My answer would be a wonderful piece of history.
20p each bought me these beautiful postcards which I intend to make into a display for my craft room.
First up is this delightful birthday greetings card it still has the penny red stamp on it, posted in 1926. A treasure in so many ways.
It never ceases to amaze me what you can find.......
