I love second-hand materials. And I totally love these wooden bobbins that I have found at a thrift store. My current sewing box is falling apart out of pure misery. It is a small thing. Now it is time for a "new/old" one to be found. I can already imagine these wooden bobbins in it!
What I love about second-hand craft materials is the idea of memory embedded in the tools, by their previous owners, the skills and love they used to make beautiful things with them.
I hope some of that skill will pass on to me while taking these treasured tools in my own hands.
And there is nothing like strolling on a flee-market or second-hand store, it's my favorite way of shopping. You never know what you'll find and there is such a diversity!
