The sum of the individual listed prices below is $ 71. If you really want to treat a new child [ and its parents ! ] ......

......EVERYTHING SHOWN can be had for $ 59 - a further savings of $ 12 for handmade items !.

Try to find in baby stores any similar handmade baby items even for $ 59 for just one item !

In the 1940s one of my grandmothers made these precious items for me : two layette sets, a separate jacket, and two decorative bibs. All of our children are past growing their families with new babies. We don't want to donate them to a resale store, being concerned they might be discarded as of no practical value.

But who says "Baby clothes have to be practical" ? These can be used for special occasions and are beautiful !

The sets and the separate jacket are all wool; the material of the bibs is unclear to us. The detailing and accents are exquisite. These 75 year old items are in very good condition and have been packed away for I don't know how many decades. It is now time for them to see the light of day in someone else's home.

"But they're blue" you say and "I'm looking for a different trim color". Read on.

Group of 4 items in photos 1-4 is $ 24. This set has blue ribbon accents but they can easily be color-changed by simply removing the colored ribbons and substituting a color or your choice.

The blue accents on the garments, photos 5 - 6, are an integral part of the garment and cannot be changed, short of a strong bleaching. Group of 4 items in photos 5 - 6 is also $ 24.

Part of the separate jacket's blue is crocheted in and cannot be changed, short of a bleaching [ photos 7 and 8 ]; it is $ 14.

Photos 9 - 11 show the bibs - the first bib has both pink and blue to please everyone. The second bib in the group photo has non-removable blue. The PAIR of bibs is $ 9.

PLEASE LOOK AT OUR OTHER ITEMS FOR SALE by clicking on the link “more ads by this user” which you will find under the map image on this page and to the right of the group of photos for the item you’re looking at now.

To see these cute infant crocheted pieces we can meet in a safe, public place, with social distancing, at a time mutually convenient to each of us. I am very flexible on ‘where and when’. Cash only, COD, please.

Thank you for your interest.
