I also made off with a few sewing stuff storage items. Backstory: When I started decorating my studio last fall, one of the first pieces of furniture I bought was an old, rather, vintage, kitchen cupboard. It is quite tall and the top is laminated. It is edged in metal and has an "on board" bread compartment drawer. That said, today I found a silver bread box and a set of silver canisters. I've placed these atop of my cupboard. It rocks!
With my loot in my boot, I left Good Ju Ju and walked over to a "proper" antique store. Here I purchased my first vintage sewing pattern. Actually, I bought two patterns. I'm not sure what year the Butterick pattern was produced because I can't find a date on the package or anywhere on the instructions. It is unique, to me anyway, because it is a 1/2 size. I haven't seen this on patterns since I have been sewing. The Simplicity (5967) pattern appears to have been printed in 1973. Tres cool huh?
One last word...maybe two. I must say I was a bit taken aback when I spied a Sean Cassidy poster listed as "Vintage Hearthrob." If this makes you feel old, I won't mention that I also saw Leif Garret's poster, too. If I had the exact same Sean Cassidy..."Da Doo Run Run"...poster, does that mean I am vintage?
