I found some time to go browse around at a junk shop today. It isn't really full of junk. I just don't know what else to call it. The sign on the outside says antiques, but I would call the things inside more collectable, and just regular thrift store items.

Anyway, I got both these boxes of sewing stuff for 6 dollars! Yep! 6 dollars. Both boxes were wrapped in plastic, so I could not dig thru them before buying. It's ok. They were definitely worth it.

Here are the boxes as they were bought. I did remove the plastic from the bigger one because it kept glinting in the pics.


Here it is all categorized and arranged on the floor.


A close up of the trims, etc. There are 75 cards of various ric rac, seam binding, piping, and other trims. Some not open, with a price tag of 10 cents on it from Ben Franklin.


Another close up. Love the needle books. To the bottom left of the needle books is a black disk with holes in it. Does anyone know what this is?

Terri looks like you made out like a bandit! There sure is a whole bunch in those boxes :)

I did Kelly! Once I got it all out and organized, I felt like I had pretty close to stollen it with what I paid for it. Just goes to show ya, a treasure is in the eye of the beholder. Guess it wasnt worth much to whoever sold it.

Hi Terri!
What a treasure indeed! Good for you! I can't get over how much stuff you got for 6 little bucks. I would have floated around all day also. ;-)

Your blog is gorgeous! I love all the recipes and your slideshow blew me away~ You are so very talented.
