    I stopped by Goodwill on a lark, just because I was driving by, and got two sewing boxes full of stuff. Once I sorted out and threw away the "junk" I ended up with two bags of buttons, a bunch of old thread (I know it's best not to use this for quilt making, but may be okay for decorative stiches), a bag full of snaps and eye and hook closures, and some other odds and ends. I got all the stuff in one box so now I have an empty one to fill up!

    If any of you ladies need to "refresh your girdle", I've got the trolley supporters you need. :-)

    I remember those girdle clips. I wore a girdle and didn't need one now I need one and don't wear one. You sure made a haul.

    You should use those girdle thingies to hang up a wall hanging!

    I remember those!!! I also remember my aunts bending over to lock them to the single hose they wore, one on each leg, and screaming when their fingernails started a run in those extremely hard to get hose!!!!! They were precious things, and I would be sent to "the store" to see if one of my Grandma's kin would have a pair or two of them "below the counter" for my aunts. I'd get them in a paper sack so no one could see what they were....they were THAT precious and hard to get.

    My girdle just hasn't been getting the support it needs lately. It bears a heavy burden....

    Did you know you can use those clips to secure a picnic table cover or a fitted sheet whose elastic is done for?

    I'm a little bit younger (not a lot) but I don't know what my trolley is! (LOL) Please excuse my ignorance, and help me out by explaining it to me! Thank you so much!

    That sounds like a euphemism for something. I'm just not sure what! :mrgreen:

    I haven't thought about a girdle since, when I was a child, my Mom(who is now 87 yrs young) bought one of those new Playtex Living Girdles...the thing was made from some kind rubber... the day she tried it on was very, VERY hot...the first time she tried to go to the bathroom, it wouldn't budge...she finally had to get my Dad to cut the thing off of her very carefully with scissors...and it didn't help that all of us, especially my Dad, were laughing...she never bought another one!!! lol...Naomi :oops: :oops: :oops: :oops:
