cartes antiques de coffret

New Treasures have just arrived for all those loyal fans!
You'll never find any antique filled with such history as an antique cabinet card or authentic photograph. Each tells a story and has an intricate background following it close behind. If you're creative enough, you can take any vintage image and make it into a masterpiece, partly for respect and partly for the love of it.
And if you're interested at all in genealogy, don't hesitate to delve into the depths of our ancestors.

These will all be going on sale slowly the next few days on my etsy, if you have particular interest in purchasing one before I put it up there, don't hesitate to inform me.

This is such a lovely image of an eldely man with such a goofy mustache! This cabinet car is perfect for all you're crafting needs but instead of spending all my time telling you how amazing this photograph is and what great condition it's in, let's spend our time browsing all the other treasures I have!
One of my personal favorite, this photograph is dated by the photographer "Taken Aug. 1941. " What an antique! Dressed in his military uniform, this gentleman was either leaving for war or just returning. app. 3 x 4, this is a completly authentic image, unique an one of a kind on it's printed photography paper, unlike a cabinet card it was most likely photographed by a closed loved one and is filled with the most precious memories.

If you've ever wondered what a beautiful woman looks like, you can always take a look at an antique cabinet card. Forget those hustlers and maxims, if you want to look at trash than you can feel like poop. Here is a unique example of what a adriana lima looked like in their time. This young lady was famous for being a town looker, and in the scrapbook that this was removed from it said she won beauty queen 195- and it was scratched out =[
Her lovely dress looks like something from a pageant and This card is in such lovely shape. for information on the photographer and details, inquire in a simple comment. All photographs available for $5 plus shipping by request or on my etsy, so be sure to check it out.

And last but not least the goofiest of all, an amazing example of the extensive amount of maids neccesary to intricate an old fashioned hair style, a rea demonstration of what we'd call a modern alfalfe but to them was what we call a fashoinable fuckt. (if you dont know what that is, it's the australian term for those large bulbs of hair covering only the top portion of you're head like a speed bump. i learned that because it was a fashion trend during the last 2 years of my 11 year irish dancing career.

Hope you enjoy these photos and etsy's been slow lately so take a look.
