Saltwater Notions is an online emporium filled with all sorts of antique and vintage treasures. With a central focus on goods connected to the history of textiles and fashion, the shop is stocked with everything from antique and vintage lace, ribbons, trims, buttons, beads, and other haberdashery goods, to antique clothing, accessories, linens, and jewelry. 19th century and early 20th century fashion magazines, historical needlework books, catalogs, illustrations, and other antiquarian ephemera are also among the shop’s specialties.

A variety of other cool antique and vintage goods can be found in the Saltwater Notions online shop as well — from old toys and dolls to kitchenalia, folk art, and beyond.

Created by fiber artist and fine craft collector Elena Rosenberg, this special shop is an extension of Elena’s art studio practice. It grew directly out of Elena’s love for handmade objects, their stories, and their lasting aesthetic value over decades, and even centuries.

Elena divides her time between New York and Massachusetts and happily ships orders all over the world. The inventory in the Saltwater Notions online shop changes daily — Elena invites you to visit often to check out fresh finds.
