Have ya ever???


One of my favorite things to look for and find are vintage patterns. Before listing them, however, I always like to check to be sure all pieces are there. I know the retro look is so "in" right now and these fashions are being recreated.
Yesterday was my day to go through my newest finds so that I could get them listed. Its quite a job. Have ya ever taken a wedding dress pattern out of the envelope and then tried to put it back in? It reminded me of Dick Van Dyke trying to push all those walnuts back into the closet! If you know what I'm talking about, you know about old I am! ha!
Anyway, I "got er done" and thankfully I only found one pattern (doll clothes) that was missing a piece.
My dilemma, do I put all those piece of the bride dress back in and potentially ruin the envelope? Or do I leave pieces outside the envelope, nicely fold and mail them that way...hmm.. What do you think?
Must get to listing these, so watch for more patterns in my zibbet shop soon!

Hi Kathy!

I'd leave it out, and put the whole thing in a nice plastic bag with the pattern front facing out.

Gotta work on lots of catching up today, including listing on Zibbet!

I agree Kris, thanks....Let me know when you get your stuff on zibbet...and what your store name is. I hope it works out. I just saw on twitter that all the discounted premium accounts have been sold for the month of now the price will be higher again. Im glad I went ahead and signed up with the premium membership at the get-go. I think its going to be popular. Twitter and facebook will help get the word out.
