I found these lovely old Clark's machine embroidery cotton at my local Salvation Army family store. They were in two packs and had to have them both! When I got to the counter the nice lady there said that price is far too much for those old cottons and gave them to me for less than half what the sticker said. Score!
The old owner must have thought they were too nice to use as only the blue has about half the cotton on reel and the rest hardly look like they have been touched.
I want to put them on display some where in my sewing area and just use for top stitching special things!!
And this ric rac was from my local church op shop. It still had a price sticker from DIC department store for 2c a metre, must be old! And there is around 25m of each colour.
Plus a few other little bits of ric rac were in the bag too, all for $2.50, bargain.
