When I started this blog I mentioned one of my all-time favorite sites: Sheaff-Ephemera. Here’s another sampling of some of their collections. They’re always adding to it and it’s a phenomenal resource for inspiration. All images are owned by Sheaff Ephemera. Go to their site to drool over their amazing collections!!
Baggage Claim Tag for a trip to Rome. Date not shown..but who cares, it’s pretty :) Via Florizel Canal.
Here’s another green bean label, this time by Red Moon. This was made in the 1920s-1930s in Baltimore, Maryland. The lithographer was Simpson & Doeller. To give you a little more perspective, the label is 4.25″ x 11″. You can buy this one for your collection on Etsy.
I love these vintage Butterfly Brand labels. They’re from the 1880s and have a very distinct style. These particular ones are actually up for sale on Etsy for very reasonable prices. Buy the Pumpkin one here, and the Bean one here.
These beauties were part of another vintage sale on One King’s Lane. (FYI: I’m not associated with them in any way, I just post what I see that’s pretty :)
These are phenomenally done. I honestly thought they were actual vintage labels when I saw them. The pencil written on top is such a great idea and makes them feel like they actually traveled the world on someone’s luggage. See Dustin’s dribble page here. Via Sam Allen on Pinterest.
