Junk Lovin Wednesday

Well, this week's installation is modest...a 'Crafter's bag'!
I like the vellum bag...I can recycle this! 

 


"PURSEnalities inc."; a mag of bag and purse patterns, kits and accessories.  Not sure, but guessing circa 1960s.  The address is 1619 Grand Avenue, Baldwin, New York 11510.  I wonder what's at that address now?
  

Rick-Rack (keep); thread (keep); empty wood thread spools (keep); buttons (keep)...the tiny white ones are great for cloth doll clothes; needles for hand sewing (keep).  The sewing pamphlets and other things will get Freecycled.

Until next time...Peace and Junk Love!

Whoa, love your vintage sewing collection.
Seems you organize them so neatly, that's what I need to learn! I love old wooden spools, too, aren't they charming!?

this old sewing basket came with little nick nacks inside. Just wanted to share with you.

I am using vintage sewing patterns in my artwork at the moment, only ones that are incomplete. Can't get enough of them:) Love your junk!
