GET IT ON TAPE

This is a rather scruffy tape sample card, presumably from a French drapery shop with nice old fashioned script and figures;  No. 16 bottom right is 25F. le metre which is not difficult to translate!    I have a big reel of similar linen tape myself which is very useful for making all kinds of loops and bindings - strong and quite smart on tea towels and various ties on aprons  and other clothing.- and with the current fashion for all things stone and pebble coloured, I have used some to decorate cushions and bags.     I offer the little card to anyone who collects old haberdashery - free, but ask for postage which might be about £1.  It is quite useless but I can't throw it away and am now trying to reduce the chaos of my sewing room! Contact me dbaer@onetel.com.  P.S. I HAVE HAD THREE WOULD-BE TAKERS WITHIN 2 HOURS OF PUTTING THIS OFFER ON AND I ACCEPTED THE FIRST OFFER - SO IT SEEMS I HAVE SEVERAL READERS AND TWO WERE FROM FRANCE!  THANK YOU AND SORRY TO DISAPPOINT.
