Vintage Beauty Swap

I received my beautiful parcel for the vintage beauty swap a few days ago, all the way from America from the lovely Kristin. Everything is gorgeous! It was all so beautifully wrapped (sorry- no pictures- camera wasn't co-operating the day I opened it!) and came with this lovely card.

The jewellery box is wonderful, the perfect place to keep all my little treasures, and it had these lovely gifts inside it as well! And the purse is really beautiful. The pictures don't really do it justice, it's covered in beads and sequins. The tiny bottle is an antiseptic talc with beautiful flowers on the label. Some of the words on it have rubbed off and what is left is so funny to read! It says "For infants and..........toilet. Invaluable...........chafing,.........irritations, sunburn etc...............antiseptic." I love it!

So thankyou very much Kristin! I hope you like your package when it arrives!

Lovely things and though they are obviously old they are in such good condition.Loved your charity shop finds and thought your tale about the assistant complaining about the others very funny. Unfortunately it is very true I know a couple of OAP's who work in charity shops and it would seem that they can be a veritable hotbed of gossip & bitchiness. Such a shame.
