Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Sounds nutty to me, but different strokes for different folks. Who knows? Somebody with more money, than sense might come along and just have to have it.
I think the key to the price is the wooden......(spools)......can't find those at Target!!!!!!!!
Some people think just because it is old it is worth gold. You used to be able to buy wooden spools in craft department, and they are around at estate sales and second hand stores.
I have so many old wooden spools of thread but never thought about dumping into an old jar and putting up for sale! Naw...I'll just put jars and decorate my own sewing areas and/or make a few smaller jars for gifts to sewing friends.
all i can say IMHO is hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahh a
well if that is what they are worth, i have at least 500 dollars worth, and on that note,.....
Silver threads and golden needles may be in that jar, cant tell from afar, but for me, im not stupid are insane, but they will find a sucker somewhere, look they came down from 150.00 to 100 , in this economy,,, and yes i got most of mine from estate sales and for little of nothing and thrift stores, for even less, i reuse the spools for winding my embroidery thread on, i do mine by hand and and also using pipe cleaners and the different sizes they make great people, lol,
SPREAD THE LOVE-- hug a child, share a smile, be kind, and let a loved one , and an animal know that you care,,,, it costs nothing but a minute of a day, so do not delay.
Just imagine! To think that I threw away a fortune several years ago when I was cleaning out to make my cross-country move.

Yes, that is crazy! First of all - the thread is dry-rotted and will break easily. Even silk dry-rots.
I printed the second photo so my son (or me) can make a strip spool holder like that .

Yep, they are crazy.
I bought a whole box of the thread for $3.00.
I put it in my own gallon jar.
Maybe I should contact them to sell mine.
