    How neat my mom has one of these except it doesn't have the legs on it. It was the neatest thing ever as a kid to find and look through all the hidden treasures she had in it.

    Wow, congratulations. It will make a great place to organize all your sewing "stuff". It looks like it is in excellent condition.

    Congratulations! I bought mine from a garage sale filled with the ladies mothers things! I really like it especially sitting next to my treadle machine. They sure are a nice addition to a sewing area.

    I bought one of these at a garage sale recently. Mine does not have legs. It was made in Poland (says so on the bottom.) I am working on stocking it up. Have fun!

    I freq shop my local GW.... but I have issues with their tendency of high shipping and a handling charge , even if it is local and I wish to pick up......
    I still roam their auctions.. but so far, haven't found anything I wish to pay their extra fees for, but thats just me....... happy [email protected]!!

    Very cool. I have a smaller one that doesn't have legs that a friend at work gave me when cleaning out her mother's stuff. She wanted it to go to to someone who would use it. I love it.
