In The Stock Room

With limited space in the stock room, we have a tendency to stack floor to ceiling.  And just what is in all those boxes, you may ask?  Vintage millinery flowers and leaves, mostly made in Germany and Czechoslovakia at the end of World War II.

 My time has been devoted to sorting and organizing.

Fancy metallic sewing trims need to be wound onto cards.

Velvet leaves need to be separated by age, color and country of origin and then boxes labeled.  It's satisfying work, where one can see instant results and the effort now makes life less complicated down the road.
