A couple of years ago I spotted this wooden box on the bottom shelf in the back room of a little antique shop.
It was full of buttons, snaps, pins, and other sewing accessories. Of course I needed to add this to my sewing collection.
This is what was inside the box.
It was so fun to see the price of some items being 10c, 29c, 39c, 49c. Even the package of pink rick rack was only 25c for 3 yards!! The box appears to be handmade and has a name on the bottom. I think I paid $3 for the whole box.
Sewing has been a part of my life ever since I took Home Ec back in the 10th grade. I no longer sew garments, but the skills I learned have been put to good use through my quilting experience. When I took my first quilting class 25 years ago, we were cutting fabric with scissors and making cardboard templates. Boy have things changed. And so much for the better.
