    I paid 50 cents this old sewing kit. The needles have been there so long that they have left rust on the fabric. The spools are wooden. I couldn't pass it up even tho it is not usable. It will make a nice decoration for my sewing area. I couldn't find a date on it. :(

    That is what I was thinking judging by the color.
