Treasure Find!!!!!!!!

So, last night I was doing the whole treadmill torture thing, when what should I come across on Craigslist?!
An old sewing box!
I immediately stopped torturing myself and made the call. Tonight it and all it's wonders are mine!


Inside was a trove of amazing goodies...
  
                                       

We dated this jar to a 1938 ad in a South Carolina newspaper.



A couple door to door insurance salesman needle books...1930's.





Buttons for 15 cents,


Paper tapes,


Patches from an old Ohio market "Buckeye Tempo",


Old singer needles,


more paper tapes,


pockets,


old thread,


4 yrds for 10 cents!




This stuff is sweet!



more old patches,


and a bunch of thread!



A great find for 35 bucks!


Sorry about some of the blurry pics, it is late and I am shaking with laughter as Hubby googles this stuff and we read the ads for the products and companies.
