Finds Come and Finds Go

A couple of weeks ago I found an antique corset at a local estate sale, along with some other vintage clothing and lace bits.  I listed the corset the next day and it sold almost immediately. It was in good condition and I had priced it reasonably in the hope that it would sell quickly.

I always include a little something extra with my Esty packages. Usually it's a fun tag that I've stamped and tied with some seam binding, but when I was preparing the corset to mail, I decided I wanted to do something more specific to this special piece.  I looked on The Graphics Fairy and found a great vintage photo, then added some lace and a button. I think it turned out nicely, and hope the purchaser will enjoy it, along with her new (old) corset!
