Christmas is past, and here it is, the days AFTER and what to do?

Go shopping?

 

Here are some possibilities currently for sale on eBay. Enjoy!

After Christmas, what do many people do? Go Shopping?

 

As an after-Christmas treat, I have been looking on eBay for tools that are the sorts I posted in

my series, 'The Twelve Days before Christmas'.

 

In the next few days I will post a handful of tools I found on eBay that would interest me.

I usually look for an interesting feature, for example I like the cover to the first crochet hook and the 1911 patent.

A pretty hemmemasure with a 3" ruler, perfect for your bag of needlework supplies.
