Vintage Sewing Stuff and Boxes

It’s always dangerous when I go any place that sells used goods because there’s a good chance I’ll find something to like. I enjoy the randomness of the items that are often happy surprises. Recently I went to a local store and got a good pile of cool stuff for $24 (which made me quite happy).

A good chunk of the stuff I got was sewing related. While I’m not excited about the colors, I really like the packaging on these old bias tapes. They’re so cute. I’m not sure how old they are, but the Wright’s one is 10 cents…so it was a while ago.

Then I got some cool boxes. First up is this old plastic box; I love the soft minty green color and the simple design on the lid. I got a bunch of old sewing patterns as well (that I’ll share in a later post).

I adore this Carter’s Midnight Typewriter Ribbon tin. I love the simple celestial images; it’s such a clean design.

And one of the most interesting things I bought was a blue safety deposit box from The Mutual Benefit Life Insurance Company. And the combination lock still works (which is fantastic).

I’m not quite sure how I’ll be using most of these items, but it was too difficult to resist…
