Shipping is extra, and will be actual USPS priority or first-class mail postage, so the more you buy, the more you can combine shipping. Let me know your zip code, and I can quote you exact shipping. Payment can be by paypal to hanktrent@voyager.net (hanktrent@voyager.net) or check or money order to Hank Trent, 562 Call Rd., Crown City, OH 45623. Checks may be held to clear.

SMALLER PIECES OF SILK

Light gray 100% silk square shawl, 33"x35" with 100% silk hand-tied fringe. The body of the shawl is extremely lightweight, but the best part is the 8"-long silk fringe on all four sides, for a total of almost four yards of fringe. Picture of the fringe is here: http://www.hanktrent.com/Gray_fringe.jpg (http://www.hanktrent.com/Gray_fringe.jpg) $25

Same light gray 100% silk fringe as above, cut off from another shawl, with a narrow header of silk fabric. There's the length from one shawl, which is about 136", plus two other pieces about 15" each, for a total of over 4-1/2 yards of silk fringe. $25.

Lightweight pale frosty green crepe-back 100% silk satin, 45" x 2 yards, $8 for the piece.

COTTON SATEEN

Light blue 100% cotton sateen, heavy and sturdy, too heavy for bodice lining but good for a facing where you need stiffening, or for sturdy bags or pockets. One piece 50" x 34", $3.

Tan 100% cotton sateen, same weight as blue above, one piece 32"x35" plus a little extra, $3.

BONNET BUCKRAM

Crown buckram, stiff 2-ply buckram, what you need for bonnet-making, white 100% cotton, 38" wide, selling by the half yard, up to four yards available, $5 per half yard.

COTTON VELVETEEN, MOLESKIN, ETC.

Quality black 100% cotton velveteen, like Joann Fabric sells for $11+ per yard. 42" x 4 yards, for the piece: $25.

Vintage light gray 100% cotton fabric. This might be what you call moleskin, like uncut corduroy and used for the same purposes, a sturdy fabric with a soft almost velvety nap one one side, also feels like a very heavy sturdy canton flannel. It's vintage fabric, so has some slight discoloration on the fold lines, but is solid and strong. 43" x 27", for the piece: $4.

Scraps of cotton, ramie, cotton-linen, velveteen, 2-3/4 lbs. Mostly small pieces 10" x 10" or less, with a few larger ones. Very few printed calicos, mostly polished cotton, sateen, some heavier weights, solid colors and woven patterns. For the bag: $5.

HOOKS & EYES

Dritz No. 2 black hooks and eyes, sold by the box of six cards. For one box of six cards (84 hook & eye pairs) $2. I have six boxes available.
