Being a pincushion fanatic, this label was enough to make my heart skip a beat. There were three such drawers.
Inside I spotted a charming vintage puzzle ball pincushion. Didn't get it but what a delight to see.
Another drawer harbored delicate vintage lace trim galore.
Vintage hankies—one of my favorite collectibles—filled another drawer.
Another drawer revealed vintage crochet thread. Other drawers (not shown) held vintage pinking shears, buttons, belt buckles, sewing cases, etc.
Nearby, a glass case tempted with vintage tape measures—some made of celluloid and vegetable ivory. There was even a beautiful antique sewing bird for about $300. In another post, I will have to show you mine which I've had for years.
Despite being tempted by so many vintage sewing goodies, I was very disciplined and only bought a couple items, including this vintage spool stand for $15. It's not an exceptionally old one but I liked its basic form and I figure I can always paint it someday.
Speaking of vintage spools, check out this creative shelf made of them. At nearly $800, it was too pricey for my budget!
Before we left, I spotted a cupboard full of vintage quilts. None came home with me as I had already busted my vintage quilt budget during my earlier trip to the Twin Cities this month when I found a couple 1930s quilts.
Did you enjoy this little visit? If so, stop by later for more eye candy from my Twin Cities trip.
