Look what I found today!

at the thrift shop on base here at Ft. Bragg, I found an awesome vintage 80's sewing case! I just had to show it off! I have been wanting something to organize my stuff, but honestly quality in items today lack what they used to be.
I LOVE the quality of this item though. It was made in 1983, and still is amazing! Whoever had it, babied it. I want to sticker it up with random stickers that mean stuff to me, like my sewing machine. It was 5.50 too. Happy so great deal!

What about you guys? Do you like vintage sewing items for storage? Do you own anything vintage?

My husband bought me an antique Singer from the sixties or seventies that is in a cabinet, I got that for one of my birthday presents, it was only 45.00 on base at the thrift shop! Just want to have it serviced. I think it is beautiful.

feel free to post pics of any little or large vintage item you own and love. Happy

I could really use a sewing case like that, it would make my crafting on the go so much easier. I'm going to have to find a thrift shop close to me.
