Vintage Chenille Stems/Pipe Cleaners



Vintage chenille stems or pipe cleaners in the best shabby worn colors. According to the label (don't you just love the graphics on the label) these are for making novelties, favors, animals, figures and craft work. Love, love, love the colors of these skinny stems. Have you ever seen a rose colored chenille stem before? I haven't. Originally there were 36 stems but I only counted 19 left. The colors are grass green, lilac, pink, rose, yellow and white. Approx. 9" long.

$6.00

Charming Vintage Kitchen Pillow

Custom made by yours truly, this is a charming kitchen pillow......how cute would this be sitting in a kitchen chair as an accent piece. This cute petite treasure measures just 13" x 6". It is fashioned from a vintage embroidered dish towel. Love the glasses embroidered in blue and the sweet flowers. On the back there is vintage chintz type floral fabric and another piece taken from a different dish towel that had a pretty blanket stitch on it.

$18.00

What lovely "goodies" Lynn!

Oh Lynn...you absolutely can still buy Rub & Buff. Not much of it can be found in the stores in Toledo...Michael's, Joann's, Hobby Lobby only carry about 3-4 colors each out of the 20 colors available!

I ordered mine through a web site and had it in a couple of days. And, with the postage, it was still cheaper per tube than buying it at 1 of the 3 stores listed above.

Here's the link...look at all the pretty colors available:

You have wonderful items! I have a large jar of those pipe cleaners, not sure what I will ever use them for but I love the colors.
I am finally back on for FFM too! It is fun isn't it?
Hugs,

What a fantastic idea, I love the thought of a blogging flea market. I hope this is going to be a weekly event; I didn't bring any money today, but I'll plan on shopping next week!
