Well, today has been an exciting day. We have launched a new collection of cards in our Etsy Store.

The 1950s was such a great time for ladies clothing, especially the dresses and today we have had fun creating three of them. Not the kind you can wear but these ones are on blank cards. The perfect card for your retro friends and for any occasion.

What does Mercerised Cotton Mean?


We love out crafts at Squeakerchimp but have always wondered what ‘Mercerised’ means. Going up on Thursday are 10 balls of the stuff so it was time to find out. Here is what we now know –

Mercerization is a treatment for cotton fabric and thread that gives fabric or yarns a lustrous appearance and strengthens them. The process is applied to cellulosic materials like cotton or hemp.

So now you know too!

New Blog for Squeakerchimps

Exciting times are afoot. At the start of May 2014 Squeakerchimp opened its ebay shop and we how have our own blog too. This site will evolve as we evolve too. Blogging is something that is a bit new to use but we will get there.

We hope to share with you interesting information about vintage and retro things that we find along the way. Things that we had to go looking for and therefore you might be interested in to. Such as –

  • What is the difference between Art Deco and Art Nouveau?
  • Exactly what is Retro, Vintage and Antique
  • What new stuff if Squeakerchimp listing on eBay? (Who wouldn’t want to know!)
  • What items we buy that we just can’t bare to part with.
  • Much much more

For now, that’s all.
