This looks like a flat needle of some sort. Does anyone have an idea about this? I'd love to know its purpose.
Another mystery...I am not familiar with this symbol. Does anyone recognize it?
The ever present tape measures.
Some lingerie notions.
Another needle book.
And finally, my most cherished find. Sterling silver thimbles. That actually fit!
When I bought the sewing box, I was not quilting or embroidering and so paid little attention to these. Yesterday, I cleaned them up a bit and fell in love with the details and all of the little imperfections. One is a bit out of round .
What caused this, I wonder?The entire box cost next to nothing. I don't remember how much, but I know my flea market policy...so it was only a few dollars.
