I have been lucky enough to find 2 different vintage sample books over the last couple of months. These sample books give a window into what a different time would have been like.
This book of plaids was for Paul Salvo Ltd on Bond Street in London. Each of the plaids have their name on them. There are hand written notes on the tag for the sizes of travel rugs and different products that could be made from these plaids.
The pieces are about a foot square and there are so many possibilities in this little book.
This is just so pretty to me.
The second book was a find from just this weekend. This wallpaper book is a little rough around the edges, but I love all of the history held inside.
There are great adds for products from the 50’s.
Just look at these kitchens and bathrooms!
Here are just a few of the wallpapers and their coordinating borders. Some of them are difficult to imagine. Others are cute!
I’m sure these patterns adorned the walls of more than one nursery.
These two are textured and look like they belong in a tiki hut.
Both of these items will be available in my Etsy sale on Saturday! I will be putting more updates on Instagram. You can own a piece of history too!
