CARPET BAG

  Here is an item that I am very glad to have back in stock and made by a new manufacturer (us) who has taken great pains to make this bag as authentic as possible. It's 100% heavy cotton exterior is very similar to the original in our collection. The bag is lined with 100% cotton lining. It measures 18 inches tall and 23 inches wide. The width is 6 inches at the bottom. Easily large enough for two changes of clothes with room to spare. This is without a doubt the best reproduction of a carpet bag I have ever seen offered for such a reasonable price! There will be some variation in material designs from bag to bag.

WHITE OAK BASKET

  Now here is an item that we have often been ask for but until now have never been able to supply. We are very happy to have found a Tennessee craftsperson (it's a girl!) who is gifted in the nearly lost art of basketry. These wonderful little baskets are made from split white oak just as the originals were. The handle is also of Tennessee white oak. The style is a classic design that is very sought after, useful for every occasion. Be it the garden, the store or going to the market. Just the right size for your crochet or knitting or suitable for a picnic lunch for two. The lovely pattern woven into the side is a "poke berry" color. Dying baskets is very correct for the period. I believe Parthenia Hague mentions dying baskets in her diary. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  The actual size of your new basket is almost 12 inches long by 10 inches wide and from the floor to the top of the handle measures 12 inches tall. A very convenient size and comfortable to carry. I know you are going to enjoy it.

Here's another look.

PETERSON'S STYLE CROCHETED PURSE

Was Crochet Popular?
This lovely crocheted purse is of a timeless design. It appeared in Peterson's Magazine in January of 1862. I would be willing to wager that with just a little effort we can find an earlier source for it. Along with the complete instructions for it's manufacture. Which we have followed to the letter. This means you get a perfectly authenticated purse that is un-arguably correct for the time period.

It closed tight by means of a draw string, or should I say "crocheted string", that also acts as a carrying handle. It can also be used to fasten it to your belt or to the strap of a larger purse so it can not easily be left behind. It is 9 tall and about 6 inches across. A wonderful size for short trips. Large enough to carry all items needed but yet still small enough to be unintrusive. It is lined with an appropriate color cotton so smaller articles can not slip through. A small circular piece of press board can easily be added to give the purse a rounder shape. The very pretty tassel that dangles from the center bottom is 4 long.

They come in a variety of colors that you can choose from below.
