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,
Patches from an old Ohio market "Buckeye Tempo",
Old singer needles,
more paper tapes,
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.
