After lunch I decided since I was in Westerville I would hit up the Antique and consignment shops downtown! At one of the shops it seemed like everything I touched didn't have a price....which ALWAYS happens to me. But luckily, it actually worked in my favor today.
I found this bag of buttons, snaps, thread and various other sewing treasures that didn't have a price. Some of the other items around it had prices that seemed realy high, as in $12 for a sheet of 4 buttons ...eek!... and knowing that there were a couple sheets of buttons and lots of loose buttons in the bag I was anticipating a high price. I decided to ask anyway, because you never know! The guy running the store was thrilled (...) that I found something without a price on it. So he went over to the area, found a tag that didn't have an item and said how about $4 for the bag. What a deal!
Then I found this fun little box!
It is a Traum Thread Box that has space for 12 spools of thread. Each spool has a slit on the outside for the thread to go through (underneath the lid) and a metal strip runs across the front of the box with a little notch to cut each thread. I thought it was so cool! So guess what, it too had no price. So up to the counter I went again...and the worker dude said $6 because I kind of like it. For the thread alone it was worth it!
It was a good day finding some hidden treasures!
