Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight: WhimZies

This week’s Etsy Vintage Team Store Highlight is the WhimZies store that’s run by Bev.  Bev has been a folk artist for over 30 years and finally realized that she has many more supplies than she can ever use so she decided to set up a whimzical shop on Etsy.

This way she can share some of her interesting and unusual finds. Her collection of “stuff” includes ephemera, vintage lace, patterns, books, photos, postcards, aprons and unique bits and pieces.  All of the items in her shop is perfect for altered artists.

One of these great items is this book from 1912.

This book is a vintage copy of “English Readings” of Tennyson’s Idylls of the King published in 1912.  Idylls of the King, originally published between 1859 and 1885, is a cycle of twelve narrative poems by the English poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson.  You can see this terrific book in Bev’s shop here.

Another great item in the WhimZies shop is this terrific paper road map.

This fun mid-century road map is for Fulton county Ohio.  This is perfect to frame for your wall or to give as a gift, especially is someone lives in Ohio!  You can see this great conversation piece in the WhimZies shop here.
