Grab Bag of Mixed Trading Stamps

Savings stamps were all the rage in the mid-20th century. Consumers would collect the stamps with their purchases and fill up books like these. Stamps were given at J.C. Penney's, gas stations, groceries and lots and lots of other places. Once full, the books could be traded for merchandise. This has been replaced today with rewards cards - but the idea is exactly the same.

There's something to be said for actually being able to touch the stamps and the books. I remember going to the S&H Green Stamp outlet with my Mom to pick out things like a cooler or thermos, small appliances, umbrellas and more!

These booklets are totally unused - there are no collectable stamps inside. So, you can use them to alter, to collect your own stamps, or just as a collector's item. They measure 6-3/8 inches by 2-3/4 inches folded and open to a full sheet 2-3/4 by 13 inches. There is room on each side for stamps. The booklet will hold 1200 stamps when full.

A Brief History of Witchcraft - 1866

Originally published in 1866, this brief but comprehensive account of the history of witchcraft in England makes fascinating reading. It was researched from material then not previously published. It gives an account of how witchcraft was viewed, from an early mention in 1164 of charges against Thomas a' Becket, through to the height of persecution of witches in the 17th century.

The last witch burning took place in England in 1705 though isolated instances of the persecution of witches went on into the late 18th century.

This softcover book is a facsimile reproduction of the original. It includes 16 pages plus a 4-page cover and measures 12cm by 16cm.

Christmas crackers are a tradition that dates back to 1840 when a sweet shop owner offered sugared almonds with sentimental messages. While watching his wood fire one evening, a log burst into flame with a loud crack. This inspired the entrepreneur to contrive a log-shaped box that would pop when pulled, revealing his almond and sentiment within. Each one of ours holds a charm and snap! Two people pull the cracker - one at each end. The winner ends up with the larger end. Each one measures 12 inches long by about 1-3/4 inch in diameter.

You might choose to use rubber, latex or Nitrile gloves when handling the glass.

I call on your wisdom.
Teach me your tricks of thought and memory.
Lend me your eloquence

Help me use the tools around me to attain my goals,
and if I do not find those tools,
teach me to craft them.
Help me fly with agility to where I'm most needed.
Guide me in the ways of the sentinel.
Teach me to sing for love and
to return to those places where it has lived before.
I ask for your strength
in the face of intimidation.
I ask for your wings
as I dive into darkness and return with knowledge.
I ask for your magic
in shaping the unformed into a beautiful reality.

Lend me your vision,
which penetrates
the darkest night.
Beloved of Bast, Diana,

help me see the hidden
and delight in simplicity.
Infuse me with your
intuition and intelligence,

the mysteries together.
Silent, adaptable hunter,

I follow your lead in this
dance with the invisible,
peering through illusion,

Sealing Wax Seal Impressions & Other Stamps

J.Herbin King's Sealing wax is made from natural elements: pine resin, ground limestone, lacquer, and a cochineal dye for vibrant and deep color.

This same wax has been used by royalty to seal the most important of documents for centuries. Generations of remarkable people, from Louis XIV to Coco Chanel, have used this such sealing wax, and it is well known around the world as one of the highest quality sealing waxes ever made.

M. Herbin was a sailor, and from his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.

Then as today, sealing wax was used for documents and correspondence, but also in decoration and bottling. J. Herbin has supplied Chanel from its beginning with wax used for finishing touches on their perfume bottles.

Each stick measures 5 inches long by 3/8 inch thick and 1/2 inch wide. Depending on your use, each stick produces 10 to 20 seals!

Made by J.Herbin for over 300 years, sealing wax is still as exciting as it was when used officially.

Each wax bar is created with a wick that you light to melt the wax.

Use with caution. Never leave burning or hot wax unattended. Not for children.

The glass appears with an Alka Seltzer tablet in it and bubbles and musical notes come out of the top of the glass! This is a fantastic example of the Vari-Vue effects!

On the back, it reads, Obsequio de Pron-Tito (In honor of Pron-Tito).

The piece measures 1-1/4 inch by 1-1/8 inch.

We've seen these advertised on eBay for up to $20.00 each! Or, with a pin on the back for up to $40.00!

J Herbin Bleu Myosotis Erasable Ink in Heart Shaped Glass Bottle and Presentation Tin

More Inks, Pigments & Paints

All Things French

J. Herbin is the oldest name in current production of fountain pen inks in the world. J. Herbin created La Perle des Encres (the pearl, or jewel, of inks) at his shop on the Rue des Fosse Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.

Perfect for fountain pens, fountain pen rollers and glass pens, this water-based ink is non-toxic and pH neutral, lightfast. It flows smoothly and is fast drying. You'll also love to use this special ink as a wash with any of your assorted brushes.

SilverCrow is delighted to bring this wonderful ink to you. Blue Myosotis Ink is erasable. The color has the slightest nuance of periwinkle. It arrives in a 50ml heart shaped bottle hand dipped and sealed in blue wax in a presentation tin with a forget-me-not romance card.

Once upon a time, a knight and his lady were taking a walk along a river. He bent over to pick a flower but lost his balance. Under the weight of his armor, he fell into the river and drowned. As he was sinking, his last words were, "Forget me not."

And so the myosotis, while a humble flower, became the symbol of love's remembrance forever.

Each vintage 1-7/8 inch square box contains 6 jiggers. It was a simple solution for those doing their own car repairs way back when!

To complete the soldering job, the mechanic (amateur or pro) pinched of the top of the jigger. Then s/he inserted spliced wires into the jigger, lit it with a match, and presto! the wires were soldered together.

These originally sold for 35¢ per box. This unused old store stock was delightfully discovered in an old car repair shop. What a great gift for someone repairing a vintage car, truck, jalopy or even a motorcycle!

This lovely Miraculous Medal features the Blessed Mother Mary. The famous miraculous medal is usually associated with infants as Saint Catherine Labouré created the medal after she awoke on the night of July 18, 1830, hearing the voice of a child. She was called by the child to the chapel in Paris where she was a nun. The Blessed Virgin Mary gave her a mission to go forward and spread the word of God and she was blessed with God's grace to do so. The image of Mary that is found on the Miraculous Medal is also called Our Lady of Grace.

Because many people who have worn the medal featuring Our Lady of Grace have enjoyed healing and transformation - and even conversion, the medal has come to be known as The Miraculous Medal.

This tiny version measures only 7/16 inch wide by 9/16 inch high arrives on a little pin. It is traditional to pin this to the inside of your jacket or sweater so that you are protected by it always.

Fashioned from reclaimed metal, mostly old oil drums, these magnificent milagro-style crows seemed to be made just for us. Whether it be a dove or a crow, it matters not much, so we choose always to believe that black birds are crows, to protect our souls. Because of that, we choose to believe that they are miracles of nature and, for that reason, to us it is a milagro.

Each one has been hand cut, cleaned and hammered, then coated with sealant for protection. The crow measures just over 3-1/4 inches from beak to tail and 2-/12 inches from wingtip to wingtip. There is a hole for hanging like a milagro. And, if you cinch the nail tightly, you can change the position of the crow easily as though s/he is flying.

Please allow for some variation in size, decoration and the placement of the hole for hanging. Created from recycled metals, the artisans have worked around the metal they've found to create their final products, so much depends on their working resources.

The artisans are based in Croix des Bouquets, an area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti known for oil drum art. They strive to make a sustainable living from their craft, despite the political upheaval and lack of tourism in their country.

It comes with three tips and runs on 2 AA batteries (not included). Instructions are included on the back of the package, but you'll find that you don't need them after your first use.

We're not sure of the origin of these pieces nor are we sure of what they are. At first we thought them to be settings of a sort for rhinestones or crystals, but on second glance, there is no real base for gluing and there are no prongs for setting. So, after a much closer look, we think these are just a nicely shaped piece with roses aligned along the edges.

Each one measures 1-3/8 inch long by 11/16 inch wide. We're not really sure of the composition of these either, so please be careful with the piece when you use it.
