Goodies for Sale at Oxfam On-Line

If you are a collector of vintage threads still in the original boxes, Oxfam have about 16 boxes of various shades to interest you. The range in price is from £5.99 - £12.99 and you can make payment via secure credit card facilities. Click here to see more details.
Then there are books and I have just picked out 3 interesting ones that you could probably find only here. The first is a highly unusual 1936 translation into English of a work originally published in Serbian, by The Jugoslav Association of University Women. It is about a 14th century Serbian nun, called Euphemia. She both wrote a "laud" and made embroideries as a way of mourning a member of the ruling Serbian family. These works are now in monasteries. Three of these works are reproduced here in b/w detachable photos. 20 x 26 cm. softcover. 36 pages. The brief account of her life is included in both the original Serbian and English. Quality paper used, perhaps hand-made? Attractive gold decoration to front cover. Cover is completely detached, no other loose pages. Cover dirty but complete. All contents browned. No tears or creases. It is no. 226 of a limited edition of 600, presented and ornamented by Dusan Jankovic and for sale for £19.99.

Here are two more hard to find books by Gerda Bengtsson and Louisa Pesel - they are priced £9.99 and £12.99 respectively. Click here to see all the Oxfam needlework books.
