I love the vintage ephemera.... all types of pamphlets, advertisements, cards, bits of paper that belonged in an era long gone.  Working at a Museum and Art Gallery before I came here to Canada it was pure joy to go to work each day and be in amongst not only ephemera but also decorative items like plates, vases, books .... and so much more. Gorgeous costumes from Victorian times, boxes, jewellery..... we even had Florence Nightingale's apron.  Cream coloured satin evening boots never worn and  delicately embellished with little pink embroidered roses and covered buttons down the front.  They were exquisite.
