Great vintage sewing find
My friend, Theresa, is really lucky at flea markets. Her and her husband-to-be, Mark, often go to a few flea markets in the area. She's picked up jars of buttons and other trinkets for me that she knew I'd love. Apparently, when Mark saw this vintage sewing set, he knew they'd be taking it home for me.
I found the most amazing things in here. There are old tools/sewing kits marked 1902, and boxes of little thimbles, needles and eyelets dated 1912. I am in awe of this. And it is in great shape! I need to gently wash the seam binding and lace, but everything else is perfect. The threads are so bright and colorful—just love it!
Huge THANK YOU to Theresa and Mark for always thinking of me. This is the same Theresa who I always seem to post cards on my blog that are for her. In fact, I better run—I owe her four birthday cards and three Ruffled Bloom pins! Heart you, T.!
Thanks for stopping by today!
