A box of cottons.....
....isn't the most interesting of items I know but the transaction was sweet.
I followed a lovely old lady into Vinnies who was proudly carrying this box which she left on the counter proclaiming 'I wont be using these anymore, I'll give them to you".
I was itching to see what was inside, and a bit pushy I know, but hopped straight onto it. When I saw all the cottons I felt so happy, but sad to think of the little old lady who had to part with her collection, and who no longer sews.
Old people make me cry.
The Vinnies lady said it would be $4 for the box. So I took it.
I bet that lady has kept her cottons in that old ice cream box for years and years. Well, I like to think so anyway.
So the cottons were saved, one sewer finishing, another just beginning.
