More Vintage Sewing Notions

I have been needing a couple of things at Smith's and had also seen and heard about the cool vintage stuff they had for sale there.  So today I made the trip over to Arcanum and loaded up!  Talk about Seamstress heaven - this was it if you like all things vintage:)
All that seam vintage seam binding -120 unopened packages of it-$10.  Those huge rolls of lace seam binding? $1 each.  And I now have my first red tomato pin cushion!!  Brings my pin cushion collection up to 5.  Too bad they didn't have any vintage scissors.  There are tons of old buttons there, I'm thinking about calling them and asking what they want for the whole lot of them.
Anyway, I came home a happy girl today.  And I had beautiful new baskets from McMaster and Storm to organize it all in.  I highly recommend these baskets.

You need some kind of collage or board in your sewing area with some of that stuff! Those le chic button cards from the garage sale are so cute!

Morgan has been stashing up on all of Smith's buttons. She loves them and has started using them on headbands.

Me too, Mom, me too. Sigh. Seems I always get rid of what I later wish I hadn't:)
