Sewing Treasures

so today we will take a closer look.
 spools of thread..as you would expect....
 some other little goodies...
an odd pin, some embroidery thread, and...
anyone know what those little spools of various threads are?
for travel maybe???
 buttons......1 card of black buttons.
 very old buttons.
 When is the last time you saw any for .08??
 and this is one of my fave parts....old needle holder packs.
This old Thriftway was made in Germany......

and this sweet one with the kiddies made in Japan.
There were 2 of these in the box...
and this one has every single needle and the needle threader!!
It is like new!!
So excited to have found these.

Well, that is my bits of pieces of red for Rednesday.
hop on over for more great reds.
Thanks for coming by.

Blessings everyone

Your sewing box is quite the treasured find. How fun to acquire these vintage sewing notions. I can't think of much if anything 8 cents will be today.

What a neat old sewing box. Yes I think those little spools of thread were from traveling/repair kits. I have a couple of those, but the thread wasn't on spools.. mine are a much later version.
Thanks for sharing.

oh, i love all of these! especially the kittens.

the 8-cent price tag is from JC Penney. when i was a kid we got all our fabric, patterns and notions from Penneys.

it recently dawned on me to scan some of my old needle cards and tags ... for the wonderful graphics. thanks for the reminder!

Wow, all kinds of great treasures in that box! I never pass up old thread and buttons. Have you seen the cost of a spool of thread, or a card of buttons these days?!
Happy REDnesday,

I just love old sewing things. I have a few myself and should look for more. Your collection is great.
