Amazing Old Needle Packages!
In my futile search for a nine-inch black zipper this afternoon, I found these wonderful packages of needles in my zipper box. The Colonial Needles (above) are the Best Sheffield Steel.
The Woolco Darners (below) represent perfection in the art of needle making.
A real deal: On sale for twelve cents! Do the math. It's 20% off!
Another wonderful package.
These self-threading needles are the only ones made in Germany.
And these Queen Royal needles are made in Czechoslovakia.
And I am going to ask for Elephant Brand Hatpins!
I wish I knew exactly where they came from. I think they must have been in my mother's sewing stuff. Or maybe they came from my grandmother...
