Default Need some help identifying old sets!

Hello all. I'm an SU demo, and a customer just gave me a bunch of her old stamping stuff when she moved. There are three sets that I just couldn't figure out, though. Can anybody help me? (I'm not even sure what forum I should use to post this question).

I know that some of the sets she gave me are incomplete, but I did my best to try to group things together by style and copyright date. Does anyone recognize any of these sets?

1. five border stamps, copyright 1994. the different borders are: flowers, dots, hearts, stars, and swirls-and-dashes.
2. really lovely flowers, copyright 1998. There are eight in the set she gave me. I don't know enough about flowers to tell you what they are. One is a bleeding heart.
3. country-style flowers and phrases, including two raggedy-ann-type dolls on the "Friend to Friend" stamp, copyright 1993. She gave me six, but I think there might be some missing.

I will try to take and post some pictures as well. Any help is greatly appreciated!

Here are pics of the three sets. Did I resize them too small?

No 2 is Stipple Floral, I think. There is a bleeding heart, an apple blossom, lily of the valley, sweet pea, violet, lily, petunia and california poppy. Is this the one you have? I have the first three of this set and wish I had them all.

I'm not familiar with those sets, Amy, but I did want to say you'll have better luck identifying them if you post this on the demo-only side of SCS. Lots of demos don't even look over here on the General side anymore so they might not see it. Good luck!

The middle Stamp with all the flowers, is called Flowers of the month

And the other two I'm not sure.

The border ones are Fun Fillers. There are only the 4 horizontal ones in that set. The dots and dashes must be from another set. I'm looking at the page in the 1998 catalogue which has the Stipple Flowers. That's definitely what it is called.

I might be wrong on the middle stamp. I'll have to check my older catalogs too see.

The third one is Floral Greetings. There are actually 8 stamps in that set. What a nice gift you got. I posted the first time before you had the pictures up, so that's why I described the stamps. I have found all three in my old catalogs.

Just to confirm stamp luvr is correct:

Photo #1 - Fun Fillers for the first photo but the dot and dash doesn't belong to the set, it's part of Brides and Babies (set of 9). Saw them both in the 1997-98 catalog and I own the Fun Fillers set.

Photo #2 - In the 1998-99 catalog it shows the middle photo you have pictured as Stipple Floral.

Photo #3 - In the 1997-98 catalog the set is listed as Floral Greetings.

Now you know!

Wow, thank you all so much! The oldest catalog I have is 2001-02, so I was totally lost on these. I know, it was a great gift! She actually gave me a lot more, but the rest either came in boxes with the name stickers on them or were sets I could recognize. Some are so old that they're rubber-mounted.

Again, thank you all very, very much. Now to decide which ones to keep and which to post on B/S/T.
