Thrift Thursday--Sewing Box Number Two

A second thrift-store sewing box find! Daughter Ib discovered it at her fabulous local community thrift store, and knew it was for me.

The box was in great shape in general--we only needed to re-anchor one string that holds the lid, and re-glue the trim that holds the lining around the top edge. I love the padded satin lid lining and the needlepoint lid!

The wicker box is 13" tall over all, and measures 10" by10"-- from the style I would guess it's from the late 60's or so. The label reads 'Made for J.C. Penney'.

It waits by the sofa, all set up for small knitting projects.
