Happy Holidays 2018

 

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!

Happy New Year's Eve

 

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.

 

Carolyn was on holiday, but she is back now with all kinds of listings on eBay. Here are four I love.

They are all up for bid in the next few days.

 

Outstanding stiletto! Look at the wonderful griffin on the handle, I love it!

$9.00, so far no bids.

Macintosh-style Roses on a little needle case from the 1920's. I love the styling of this needle case, I love show it and the green celluloid thimble case would look together.

A fancy little folding tracing wheel with pretty patterns on the handle. I should think that quilters would love them. I like them because they are so typical of a certain age of sewing devices with patents.

Happy New Year's Eve and Happy New Year.

 

Tomorrow morning: one last treasure. I found a bargain, a real bargain, a beautiful hem measure for about 1/2 to 1/3 the price that it goes for, on the rare occasions that it is for sale. Somebody will be very lucky indeed! Watch for its listing tomorrow morning.

 

And yes, I went shopping right along with you. I will post a photo of my little treasure.
