Tin full of treasure
I recently attended a garage sale held by an antique dealer who was liquidating her stock; among the things I picked up that morning was this cute, old handled tin full of sewing stuff!
It's a satin-lined rosary box, and contained these sparkly old buttons!
they're from 1933.
Here are two varieties of safety pins -- I've never seen either type before; aren't they cool?
Crochet needles coming out of my ears, in all different sizes!
And more, with some other needle-like contraptions (I think one may be a felting tool...) and even a couple of lollipop sticks made of paper!
this cute wooden weaving loom!
Cute little ad from the giver -- the Typewriter Man! Can't you just see him see him going office to office, treating the front desk ladies with these little gifts?
Scissors, one pair made in Germany, plus something that looks like a paint can opener...and then those long skinny tubes that expand a little...I have no idea what they are, do you?
There's a pincushion...
a needle case...
a thimble holder...
and a scissor holder, with the sweet snippers still intact!
If you've read this far, thank you for poking through my tin with me! I'm linking up once again with:
Go and visit for more thrifty finds fun!
