Junque Boxes!

These darling little 3.5" x 3.5" boxes will each contain approximately 30 vintage treasures.


All will include vintage wallpaper shapes, vintage paper squares, vintage labels, milk caps and findings. The remainder of the contents will vary depending on what Jenni "finds" on her treasure hunts.


If the boxes sell out, they will be restocked as soon as more "junque" is found.

To be entered into today's drawing, leave a comment telling us what is your favorite type of vinatage find . . .

Pin It!
