My Vintage needle case
As a collector its everything I expected. It would have been nice if the velvet on the ends was in a little better condition but heck this is from the 1800's and I think it is okay for that age and it looks as if it was well used not left to admire.
This is one of my other newest needle cases. It is more Asian in fashion but still very cute and unique.
I also got a vintage sewing basket that has a nice but well worn red silk lining.
The way I look at it if you are going to be sewing you may as well enjoy the tools of the trade and enjoy looking and using tools that were used by someone else many years ago.
