Feed sacks as we know them developed in the mid 1920s.  Prior to this manufactures of sacks used them to advertise their products by printing their labels directly onto the sacks.   These types of sacks were generally muslin colored and were often used around the house or for clothing.  (generally underwear or nightgowns.)  After the mid 20s however the sacks were also printed with floral, patchwork or in a few cases solid colored fabrics.  The labels on these sacks were easily removed and many of us can remember clothing made out of them.

The sacks I have for sale on this page probably date from the 30-40s.  Unless otherwise noted they measure approximately 18" square.  I have tried to ensure there are no problems with these fabrics but these are used sacks  and something may have gotten by me.  They may have some stitching holes which show these to be true feed sacks.  If you are not happy with your purchase I will refund your purchase price.  Come back as I have just started going through the many sacks in my collection.

If you would like to order sacks please send me any email (order@piecedart.com) with the item #'s listed.  I will get back to you generally within the same day to let you know if the sack is available. My shipping charges are minimal since these do not weigh much.  If you would like priority shipping it is $4.20 for up to 2lbs.
