As a historic reenactor I am always on the lookout for authentic pieces at affordable prices.
Recently I stumbled across these antique 'pince nez' glasses.
They are comfortable to wear and happened to be my prescription:).
I found this antique sewing chatelaine online which I also plan on using at reenactments.
The small silver teapot pin cushion was a fun find at one of the sutlers at the Battle of Gambels Hotel.
The thimble was another lovely discovery at the same sutler's tent.
This old Victorian box is battered but still beautiful.
The top lifts and the front panel folds down.
The best part is that it holds some of my favorite things :).
Don't forget to check online shopping as well as local businesses when looking for special pieces:).
