Miniature handmade book - Peru SOLD

This is another of the miniature hand-made books given to made4aid by Pat - you can see the first here, with a bit more info. about Pat.

These delightful and whimsical little miniatures are made from recycled materials as much as possible - old maps, stamps, bits and pieces of paper, ribbon and beads.
They are perfect for little gifts or keepsakes, with or without words which might be added - poems - lists - messages - photos.

Some of them might be a suitable guage to be used as doll's house "coffee table" books.

If you would like a custom-made book for yourself, a friend, or a doll's house please let us know - Pat has offered to make custom-designed books to your own requirements.

The paper which covers front and back of this book is a vintage map, with an old Peruvian post-marked stamp, and a label with the word "inhabitants".

The end papers - inside the front and back covers - are plain pale blue paper

This little book measures about 1.75 inches/4.5cm square.

The pages are all blank and stitched together by hand, and the book has a ribbon bookmark which is an old gold colour with a little abalone/shell bead at the end.

  1. Would Maid4Aid accept money orders in US dollars as payment for
    purchased items?

    Could shipping costs be combined for multiple purchases?

    Is there an American or Canadian address to send payments to?
    Thank You

  2. Hi Alice - hello!
    We do have an American contact where you can send payments - she can take cheques, I'm just waiting to hear from her whether or not she can accept money orders.

    She can take personal cheques and yes, we'll certainly combine shipping costs.

    let me know if you have any more queries - and you can email at if you want to.

    have a good day!

  3. PS its a bit late now to guarantee delivery for Christmas, unless you wanted to pay for next day airmail delivery - we could find prices.
