I hope this is ok to post here...

I have 19 vintage (50's/60's) shirt facings and bias tapes (3 yards each, in packages). How much do you think I should ask for them on Etsy? They are mostly Wrights Trimtex. I also have 12 that are partially used, do you think I should even bother selling them?

I think your best bet would be to sell it all as a de-stash lot. At thrift stores, I'm more likely to buy vintage notions if I get a bunch of things in a bag for a given price, as opposed to having to pick out individual zippers/button cards/rolls of lace. BUT, I have selected individual notions because they were a) awesome, such as a card of REALLY cool vintage buttons, and/or b) exactly what I needed for a project.

That said, I bought a bunch of Trimtex bias tapes, piping, and hem facings at a yard sale for 50 cents each because the colours were just fabulous.
