~ TDIPT Mercantile Updating Tonight for May 1st ~

My offerings for TDIPT Mercantile tonight are two Civil War looking mail bags plus four envelopes and a letter (for each mail bag) I wrote from bits and pieces taken from a Pennsylvania 1863 newspaper article.

I made a rusty wire hook and eye for the mail bag closure. There is no glue used in the making of this mail bag. ( The only glue used was to seal the envelopes. ) I have handstitched the handle on the mail bag. I just love how these mail bags turned out ! The mail bag is a Dee Duncan design with my own touches added.

The Civil War started 150 years ago in 1861.

They will be listed tonight on TDIPT Mercantile after 9:00 p.m.

If you get a chance , please come by TDIPT Mercantile tonight after 9 p.m.

I hope you have a great weekend !
