What are these?

What Are These?


Earlier this week I made a lot purchase because from first glance I knew I could make $100s off this lot after a bit of work & buy some special items from the antique markets or eBay that I can't get at the thrifts. Tucked in an envelope were these things, have no idea what exactly they are - at first I thought they were gummed labels, but nope, stuck some water, they don't stick. I am assuming they are scrapbooking embellishments sheets? If that is the case,




Resellers,
If these things are resellable, too, what key words would be fitting for these? Any recommendations while you're here? There are ones labelled with dates from the 1990s, these do look older, but looks can be deceiving. ..

  2. Thanks so much! Definitely sent me in the right direction. These were made in England. Looks like they aren't worth much, although many aren't on eBay. I know how to list them accurately now. If they don't sell, thrift store donation bin awaits!

  7. Key worlds could be ephemera, scrapbook, People love those things! When I have childrens books that are too damaged to sell, I rip out the sheets and sell them as destash, ephemera. People snatch them up, for scrapbooking, and other paper craft projects. They will sell, no need to donate:-)

  11. Hi there, something in the back of my mind remembers them from my childhood but I can't quite figure out what I did with them. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  12. I have sold a few lots of these type of scraps on Etsy. They will sell because people use them to make cards, tags or in scrap booking. Actually that is a great find!
