July 15, 2008 Updating Hankies

Filed under: ◦,◦Vintage — sharon @ 2:36 pm


Because there are so many items on our website, and so many departments, it’s a perennial struggle to keep up with updating and adding new stock. We’re always taking pictures and organizing inventory, readying new items to replace ones that we’ve sold. As with any store, some departments are busier than others; some items demand more detail and description. The truth is, this is an insane business – all that trouble, and we have only one of each item (in many cases), so when it’s sold we do it all over again.

As a result of all these factors, some departments are updated almost daily, others less frequently. Today we added several aprons, two feedsacks, three fabrics and an upholstery fabric. Sometimes we’ll add just one new item in a department; sometimes a whole batch. This week we’re also updating the hankies (again!). We’re adding lots of beautiful floral hankies, as well as some fine Madeira and lace. I think today there’ll be at least a dozen hankies added, and more later in the week.

Part of the fun is selecting the best items to list; exciting and vibrant ones that complement our existing collection and add to it. Here are some of the coming hanky selections:

Some Madeira embroidered hankies:

And fine white lace hankies:

Another thing that makes it all fun is seeing the huge variety of stock I’ve bought over the years – some of which I’d forgotten – and just how much wonderful stuff there is. More to come!
