I used to haunt the dry goods and haberdashery shops when they were still about.
I have quite a lot of the old fashioned items in my studio that I wonder and look at from time to time.
I used to enjoy the buttons and old spools and of course trims and laces.
The old needle-cases were great and often I came a across a UFO?
Have a few still, ......see the tin in this picture.
Now such items are in antique shops if you are lucky to find some in a jar like my daughter did not too long ago.
