Preserving Vintage Home Arts on eBay
fanncynancy on eBay
here are thousands of out-of-print patterns and other treasures crumbling in basements and attics. As I started collecting these priceless items I realized that I couldn't possibly use them all myself, and they couldn't be shared in the condition they were in. So I learned how to restore and preserve them in order to offer them to other needlecrafters who could bring them alive with their busy hands and needles.
My eBay ID is fanncynancy (notice the two "n"s)
My eBay store name is PreservingVintageHomeArts
Copyright of Vintage and Antique Patterns
What's under my copyright and what's in the Public Domain
his subject can get complicated, but the simple answer is: The items I sell are in the Public Domain, which means I can sell them. What is protected is my hard work in cleaning and digitally restoring them into a usable product. So my finished printed product becomes my work. You can't simply copy the work I've done and sell it yourself. You can get your own original and do exactly what I'm doing and clean them up and reproduce them yourself to sell.
I'm often asked if you can make the items and sell them. Of course you can! That's the whole point, to preserve these priceless and disappearing items by actually using and making them. Otherwise they're just print on paper. I encourage you to do great things with the patterns, keeping them alive for years to come. And please send a picture and let me know how it turned out!
