Vintage Sewing Goodies

I was organizing some of my sewing stuff the other & ran across some goodies left by my Grandma. There were snaps & hooks& needles...still in great condition. I don't want to use them, not sure exactly why. I guess they are just too neat just the way they are. If anyone out there collects this stuff - just give me a shout - I'd love to find them a home somewhere other than a box in my closet.

My mom also gave me a bunch of old patterns which I may or may not sell, not sure yet. I need to look into it some more because I am not sure what is considered a "good find". If you know anything about this stuff, let me know - thanks. I scanned a few into the computer...I am thinking of taking photos though because they do not look as good when scanned. Here are a few of the patterns:

You keep all those with good care, I can see from the pictures... and I always love to look around for Vintage Bridal Patterns.. don't know why.. maybe because I love everything about weddings.. even I can't saw any cloth... hahah :)

Wow! The "Happy Home" needle pack is outstanding! I have a few of the old sewing goodies. I should rustle them up, see if they are in as good condition as yours.

vintage finds are loads of fun. The simplicity is from the early 70's. I either have it or some VERY similiar.

Found your blog thru the Quilt Home newsletter. Congrats on winning!

Love your bags.
