Vintage Friday

On Monday I went to a new thrift store with my sister Berda. We found a big bin of patterns. I was able to get 26 vintage patterns from the 1940's to 1960's for less than $4.00 Most were in good condition, some even uncut. However, at this store they marked each pattern with a red grease pencil to indicate the the price code. I tried everything I could think of to get the markings off but nothing worked. Does anyone have any ideas?

Becca did you try a gum eraser. It is the kind that is brownish usually in the art dept. of the craft store. It kills me how they mark these patterns. Now they have resorted to stapling the tags? honestly! Good luck...they must be amazing....smiles...Renee
