Sweet vintage stockings


Many of my readers know that I'm cleaning out my childhood home.  Spending hours at it.  In some ways it's sort of like a treasure hunt because I never know what I will find.  These sweet vintage mini felt stockings are a case in point.  There were several different designs, about eight stockings in all, I think, but the two I'm showing here are my absolute favorites.  Each had a price tag pinned to it; these little stockings were 10¢ each!!  I love the one at top.  In case you can't read it, the little tag by the poinsettias says "Season's Greetings".
This one is cute too, with the tree, birds, and forest animals.  What a fun find!  I will have fun displaying these each year!

    1. Actually, I found the whole bunch of eight or so, together in a drawer, price tags still on. I'm guessing that my grandmother bought these and that we acquired them at some point. Since they were marked 10¢ each, I assume she probably bought 10 of them and that two had already been used for some purpose. Still deciding where to display them this year!

    1. They are, Vicki. Never used, I'm sure they've been tucked away in this drawer for many years as I never remember seeing them before. Just have to figure out where and how to display them in my home.
