Sewing Tin

What a thrill when I found this!
I had a small round tin of this pattern that was filled with small wooden spools of thread. A few years back I found two more - one the same size as the one I had and one larger.
This is NOT an uncommon find, but the sewing tin was usually in the $20 - $25 dollar price range.
I found this one in Wisconsin last week.
For $8.
I almost didn't get it, because at first glance I thought the tag said $18. I WAS tempted, but passed.
Then as we were leaving, I picked it up to get a closer look, and, of course it NOW seemed like I was SAVING $10. I just couldn't pass THAT up.

"it NOW seemed like I was SAVING $10." I like the way your mind works. It sounds oh so familiar. Well done on the find. Exciting when things like that happen, isn't it. xx
