CJ, you beat me to it, there are some great places that have loads of faboulas pictures on old trunks. They are a thing of beauty and engerning wonders. The old paper smell is an issue, but that can be solved in many cases as well. As for the paper trim and printed appliques, we are re-creating them at the local printers, using a color copier, we get a perfect remake. We save as much as we can and then build as much as we can using spray adhesive. Once the copies are made and the paper is replaced we cut and paste the new appliques just like the orogonals, what a great look, and our customers can't quit grinning either.
