Vintage Sewing Finds


I bid on this box of vintage sewing goodies and won it for the starting bid of $17.99.  The seller also offered free shipping.  While considering whether or not to bid on this item I happened to be in JoAnn's looking at fabric.  I needed new needles for my sewing machine but after seeing what the price was I realized that it might be worth trying to get this box of sewing supplies after all.  They were including four packages of sewing needles among a slew of other wonderful things.

It arrived on Wednesday of last week and I have to say I was in heaven!!!!

I love stuff like this.  To me it's like finding treasure.


Look at this pile of zippers in all the nice colors and a good variety of sizes.


Sewing machine needles and elastic in widths I didn't have.  Yaaay.


Tons of buttons.


Love these football buttons.


Cute bumble bee and patriotic buttons, plus hearts too.


Lady bugs and super cute gingham.


Loads of assorted vintage buttons.


A nice assortment of variegated embroidery flosses.  Brand new.


A handful of assorted jewelry findings.  My oldest was thrilled to get these as she loves to make jewelry.


I was able to add a new button jar to my collection.  This pint jar is completely full and I used a lid I saved from a jar of Hersey's chocolate spread.  It was a perfect fit.

I think I'll definitely get a lot of use out of all this wonderful stuff.
