Spools on Display
While my sister and our friends bought lots of little things at The Pec Thing flea market this weekend, I only found one thing I couldn’t live without:
Not only do I love the rich patina of the aged wood, but it’s an item that makes you say, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
It’s basically a piece of varnished wood with 24 evenly-spaced small-headed nails, plus one hole drilled at the top for hanging. (There’s also a larger nail at the bottom – not quite sure what that’s for.)
Do you have any sewers on your gift-giving list? Why not make them their own decorative spool holders? You could customize them in any shapes or sizes you like.
You know why I love flea markets? My big purchase was only $3. The thread that came with it is worth more than that!
What great deals have you found at flea markets lately?
