Vintage Sachets



I was lucky enough to find a bag of empty vintage sachets for .50 at the thrift store.


My fun little project was to fill, decorate, and package them for my booth at Orange Tree


Some of the sachets were just lace pouches, if these sell it will be easy to sew more pouches using vintage lace.


I dressed them up with ribbons, flowers, and buttons, then filled them with lavender and vanilla sachet.


The antique mall I'm in does not allow sachets since so many people are sensitive to smells.  This meant I had to package them in ziplock bags.  I added a header to make them more attractive.


Since the sachets were filled with lavender I really wanted lavender in the label.  This was the only lavender graphics I could find at Graphics Fairy.


OK, not spectacular, but it worked.


I priced them at $4.00 and $5.00.  
Has any one ever sold sachets in their booths?


This was a fun and easy project.

I put them in my dolled up glove boxes from my last post and put them in my booth.

Have you entered my Cottage Charm Giveaway?



Happy Creating!

Carol, Let me know if they sell, that will give me another idea for a booth. I am trying to put an inventory together so I can set up at the flea market one weekend , just to see how I do! If it succeeds, maybe I can retire early.....LOL

Carol, what a great idea and I love how you have packaged them. Where to you get the lavender and vanilla? I have to tell you, I was out of town over the weekend visiting my family and went to some antique stores and found 2 sewing machine drawers. You know they came home with me. Can't wait to fix them up.

Fortunately there isn't any prohibition where my little space is and I do sell sachets as well as dried lavender etc. Those sachets were a great find ! I make some out of wide lace ribbon and other wide ribbons.

Your little sachets are just adorable! Just love how you "dressed" then up. Great job, hope they sell for you!!

Carol, what a wonderful find! And you really turned them into beautiful sachets and the glove box is perfect! I have been working on making some sachets as well. I am using herbs from our garden and will be selling them at the Farmer's Market this summer.

Glad that Blogger is back up...I had to redo my entire NEW (BOOTH 96) BLOG...bummer! I had spent several hours on it Wed...think I got it back to how it was.

I came to back to re-post how much I LOVE your sachets!!! Love the packaging!

I was going to go to a local Flea Market tomorrow, but the 100 degree weather and not being in the mood to go junking has me changing my mind...I know I'll regret it, because there won't be another one until October!

Have a great weekend! :)
