A few weeks back I paid one of these fabulous places a visit. Manto Fev is amazing and, as always, I came away with some wonderful stuff! Allow me to show you what I got (and what's available to you!):
And speaking of Indian items, I also bought a hand carved stamp! These are new stamps using traditional Indian patterns. Older stamps were used for textiles but you could use these with paper, too! I love mine!
You've heard me talk about this before, but I can't get enough of vintage school worksheet pages! Sara sent me some great ones - I LOVE the clock one, and the fruits and veggies one would be perfect in a collage. Part of the fun of these pages is that you never know what you're going to get - I like to think of it as an art challenge!
Okay, I've saved the most unusual item for last - check out these vintage glass teeth! Sara thinks they were either samples or used in teaching methods. They are so unique, I had to buy some. I'm think I'll probably use them in a fun assemblage piece, although I'm not quite sure how yet. But come ON! How can you pass these up when you see 'em? :D
If you don't have any shops near you that sell vintage ephemera goodness, why not have some fun and check out Manto Fev and all of my other wonderful advertisers? I'll forewarn you - you can easily get lost in the sites. :)
