We have a pretty cool, very large, flea market a couple of towns over every Sunday in the summer. Trust me, there are not many bargains but it is always fun to go and walk around. You have to go early, like super early!
We took the girls this past week and I found this vintage sewing chest! I think it's pretty cool!!
This side, as you can see, has all of these pockets with elastic around the top to keep in all of the notions. There is also a little shelf up at the top that you can flip down when the cabinet is open and then flips up when you want to close it away.
This is what really sold me on the little chest though, all of the spool holders! I am thinking that I will place it on top of my desk behind my machines instead of the plain thread holder I have there now. It is in pretty good shape and was filled with a bunch of vintage notions (none of them great but still cool).
I took these pictures right after we got home. I had to put it out on the porch to air out as it smelled a little musty, as most old things do. :) I sprayed it with some febreze and now its not musty any more. It needs a good cleaning but that's about it!
