OMG - I made that pin cushion when I was in elementary school. I think it is filled with sand. My mother actually used it.
- A bag of safety pins, each pinned to the other so you could wear them as a necklace. Steel - made in USA. Do I need them? Nope.
- A small bullet with holes through it, made to go on a key chain. I think it was my grandmother's - but where did she get it? Did my uncle bring it home from WWII?
- A wooden embroidery hoop - sturdy and wonderfully made in USA.
- Bobbins for an old sewing machine - one still with thread on it. Anybody want them?
- Some weird sort of scissors (picture below) does anyone have a clue? WHAT do I do with these? Sell 'em on ebay?
Sigh…this is an archeological dig. Any takers?
- Simplicity apron pattern from 1968.
- Bone rings. BONE? Not plastic? Curtain rings for cafe curtains, I suppose.
- My mother's darning egg. I remember this.
- Needles bought at the Acme supermarket where my mother shopped. I don't think Acme supermarkets exist any more.
- Unopened package of blue flash cubes. Do you need them?
- A pair of electric scissors, still in the box. It was a bad idea in the first place.
- A couple of mother of pearl belt buckles. Beautiful, but useless - I think.
- A lone jack. Remember Jacks? If they still make them, you know they are plastic.
- Rolls of film, undeveloped (I have to admit these are mine) Who develops film now?
- Untold spools of old thread on wooden spools. Sigh…
