Default $5 Garage Sale Find

We were looking for an estate sale and ran across this garage sale. I couldn't find anything interesting and the gentlemen was dismayed that I didn't have anything. I told him I didn't see any sewing things and he said, wait just a minute, I just didn't know what to do with this. You can have the whole box for $5. I think I hit the jackpot on cone thread. Both the electric and battery powers sissors work great. There is a picture of some different sewing feet that I am not familiar with. I am a Singer person so none of these look familiar to me. While I was emptying the box, I noticed on the side of the box was written, thread/keeper. I wonder if this gentlemen has sold something that his wife didn't want to part with.

Those feet look like the ones for my 1970's era Kenmore. You got a really great deal - congratulations!

Wow. Apparently he didn't know what he was selling. Hope someone isn't in the doghouse.
